Glee posted a 4.5 rating/12 share in 18-49 – up 2% versus its last regular original on Dec. 7 – and averaged 11.4 million viewers. Each 18-49 ratings point equals 1.3 million.
Glee was also the highest rated program for the night in 18-49, adults 18-34 and teens. Afterwards, an original of Raising Hope earned a 2.8/8 and 6.7 million, while the premiere of Traffic Light posted a 1.9/5 and 4.5 million. That’s up 19% from Running Wilde’s season average before it was cancelled.
CBS won the night in viewers (16.3 million), with NCIS attracting a 4.2/12 and 20.2 million eyeballs (wow), followed by NCIS: LA (3.5/9, 17 million), and The Good Wife (2.2/6, 11.8 million). Among 18-49, CBS came in second for the night with a 3.3/9.
NBC was third for the night in the demo (2.6/7) and viewers (7.3 million), with The Biggest Loser: Couples earning a 3.0/8 and 8.3 million. Parenthood got a 1.9/5 and 5.2 million. ABC came in fourth (1.5/4) with disappointing ratings for No Ordinary Family: The drama posted a 1.5/4 — down -17% versus Jan. 18 — and tied its series low. It averaged 5.2 million. V earned a 1.8/5 — up 6% from last week — and 5.3 million viewers, followed by Detroit 1-8-7 (1.3/4, 5.5 million).
