It was another rough Tuesday for the broadcast networks. Maybe some of it can be chalked up to Thanksgiving week but this is also just a weak night for the broadcast networks. ABC started with Dancing with the Stars which was one of the few shows to go up, it was up nine tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo ahead of next week's finale. At 9pm though, Happy Endings was even in viewers but down two tenths in the demo to a very low 1.1 while Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 was even worse. It was down a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo to a terrible 0.9. I'm not a fan of quick hooks usually but ABC needs to pull this lineup. At 10pm, Private Practice was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's series low. 

Over on CBS, NCIS started off the night down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a season low. At 9pm, NCIS: Los Angeles was down seven tenths in viewers but even in the demo. Its retention from its parent show has been especially strong lately. Maybe CBS will finally trust it on its own next season? At 10pm, Vegas was down three tenths in viewers but up two tenths in the demo for its best demo performance since October 9. This is a positive sign for a show that has been skewing older and older and saw its episode order trimmed by one. It won its timeslot among the broadcast networks for the first time in weeks.

NBC was down across the board. At 8pm, The Voice took a severe drop like it did on Monday as it was down 1.7 million viewers and half a demo point for a Tuesday season low. At 9pm, Go On was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. While tying a series low, the retention out of The Voice was much better this week so that's a positive note. At 9:30pm, The New Normal was down four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo for a series low. This is doing worse than some of NBC's troubled Thursday sitcoms. At 10pm, Parenthood did not win the hour again as it dropped two tenths in viewers and the demo.

FOX's comedy lineup was down nearly across the board as well as this lineup is really suffering. At 8pm, Raising Hope was down a tenth in viewers and the demo for season lows. At 8:30pm, Ben and Kate was dead even with last week. It was the only show in the bunch not to drop but the numbers are horrible. At 9pm, New Girl dropped three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo to a series low. Perhaps the worst news came at 9:30pm where The Mindy Project fell six tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo for a series low. So, yes, both of FOX's new comedies are below 3 million viewers and a 1.4 demo. Yikes, even just a couple years ago those would have been instant cancellation numbers.
