CBS comedies beat originals of Terra Nova, The Sing Off

Posted on

It’s beginning to look a lot like the holidays. Rerun nation is setting in, but even an old episode of Two and Half Men does better than originals of The Sing-Off and You Deserve It, both of which posted low ratings in the key demographic.

CBS comedies led the night with a 2.7/7 in 18-49, with a repeat of 2 Broke Girls (3.3 rating/8 share) actually doing better than an also-ran of Men (3.1/7). Fox was second (2.4/6) after running an original of Terra Nova (up 5 percent to a 2.2/6) and House (up 4 percent with a 2.6/6).

ABC (1.7/4) opened the night with How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2.5/7) and Shrek The Halls (2.6/6), but folks clearly pooped out by 9 because You Deserve it dropped 18 percent from last week’s premiere to a 1.4/3. A repeat of Castle (1.3/3) followed. Missing Dancing With the Stars yet?

NBC finished in fourth for the night (1.5/4) with the finale of The Sing-Off (down 37 percent from last year to a 1.7/4). Seems doubtful this show will return. Same goes for Rock Center with Brian Williams, which was up 33 percent from last week’s series low but still only posted a 1.2/3.

On CW, Hart of Dixie hit series highs in adults 18-34 (1.0/3) and women 18-34 (1.7/4). In 18-49, though, the network came in sixth behind Univision with a 0.7/2.
