'Cougar Town' ratings slide, 'Biggest Loser' improves

Posted on


Viewers continue to vacate Cougar Town.

The ABC comedy had its second week back on the air Tuesday night in its new time period. Cougar (4.5 million viewers, 1.7 adult demo rating) fell 6 percent to series low. That’s with lead-in Last Man Standing (7.5 million, 2.2) holding steady too. At 9 p.m., ABC’s new midseason drama seems to found its bottom: The River (4.8 million, 1.7) didn’t drop for the first time, but unfortunately halted at a pretty scary number.

CBS won the night with NCIS (19.5 million, 3.8) down 3 percent, NCIS: LA (15.9 million, 2.9) down 9 percent, and Unforgettable (10.6 million, 1.9) falling 17 percent to a series low.

Fox was right behind with Glee (7.4 million, 2.9) perking up 4 percent. New Girl (6.2 million, 3.0) and Raising Hope (4.8 million, 2.2) slipped slightly.

NBC’s Biggest Loser (6.6 million, 2.3) was up 10 percent and Parenthood (4.9 million, 1.7) rose 6 percent.

The CW’s Ringer (1.4 million, 0.5) was up a notch.
