Ratings: 'V' drops, 'NCIS: L.A.' edges out 'DWTS'

Posted on

ABC’s V lost 23 percent of its debut audience, and its Adult 18-49 rating sank 29 percent — but still finished second in its timeslot in total audience. Meanwhile, NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles improved on their audiences from last week for CBS, and Los Angeles beat out Dancing With the Stars in total viewership despite a much-hyped guest performance by Susan Boyle in the ballroom. NBC’s The Biggest Loser averaged 9.6 million viewers from 8-10 p.m. and gained viewership over two hours, while Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance dropped viewers during the same time. The CW’s Melrose Place scored a personal worst on Tuesday —  Amanda Woodward will have a lot of things to whip into shape as Heather Locklear’s guest-star run begins next week.
