Fox's 'GLEE' finished second on Tuesday


Last night, GLEE posted a 4.0/12 among Adults 18-49 and was the highest rated program of the night among Adults 18-34 and Teens as it has been on all its eight Tuesdays so far this season.

Last night’s episode was down -20% from last week’s highly-rated Gwyneth Paltrow episode, and that decline was driven primarily by a decrease in young Adults 18-34 viewers – presumably due to the holiday week.

At 9p RAISING HOPE delivered a 2.4/7 among Adults 18-49, down -11% from last week.  An encore RAISING HOPE followed at 9:30p and posted a 1.8/5 among Adults 18-49.

On ABC, No Ordinary Family (1.8/5) was up +6% week over week but down -22% from its prior season average (2.3/7). From 9-11p, the Dancing With The Stars finale posted a 5.3/15.

CBS’s NCIS (3.9/11) was flat with last week, while NCIS: Los Angeles (3.2/9) and The Good Wife (2.1/6) both posted season lows, down -3% and -5%, respectively. Season to date, NCIS (4.0/11) and The Good Wife (2.4/7) have shown double-digit declines (-11% and -17%, respectively) versus last season’s comparable original averages (4.5/13 for NCIS, 2.9/8 for The Good Wife).

On NBC, The Biggest Loser (2.4/7) was down -4% and Parenthood (1.9/5) increased +6% from last week.
