The upward trend from Monday continued for most shows on Tuesday night. ABC had holiday specials at 8pm and the newer Shrek the Halls actually out-rated the classic How the Grinch Stole Christmas. At 9pm, the season finale of a down year for Dancing with the Stars was up 3.7 million viewers and a full tenth in the demo for an easy season high though the finale was down big year-to-year. This show needs a rest but it looks like ABC will go forward with a 16th edition in March.

On CBS, NCIS benefited in a big way from not competing with another older skewing favorite - Dancing with the Stars. It was up 3.3 million viewers and a huge six tenths in the demo for its best performance since October 2. NCIS: Los Angeles did not benefit much from the much better lead-in as it was down six tenths in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Vegas had to face the final hour of Dancing and it felt the effects as it was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo.

NBC's entire lineup was up week to week despite tougher competition on ABC. At 8pm, The Voice was up 2.1 million viewers and four tenths in the demo as it didn't have to face Dancing with the Stars. At 9pm, Go On was up a tenth in viewers and four tenths in the demo for its best performance since October 9. The New Normal was down three tenths in viewers but up two tenths in the demo. This show really isn't working here. At 10pm, Parenthood was down a tenth in viewers but up a tenth in the demo.  

FOX was up too but the numbers were still bad. At 8pm, Raising Hope was up three tenths in viewers and the demo, tying a season high. At 8:30pm, Ben and Kate was up four tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo. New Girl followed and was even in viewers but up three tenths in the demo. It couldn't beat Go On however in the 9pm comedy battle. At 9:30pm, The Mindy Project was up two tenths in viewers and the demo. In many ways, the seeming DOA Ben and Kate is actually doing better than The Mindy Project and its better lead-in.
