Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

The annual parade of sexy women in sexy Victoria's Secret lingerie won the final hour of Tuesday's prime time for CBS. Hard to believe! It also posted its largest demo rating ever in the nine years that it's aired. On a more wholesome note, Rudolph with his nose so bright and his venerable TV special (with Burl Ives' narration) led off a night that the network easily won in both viewership and 18-to-49-year-olds. But it was a rerun of NCIS — the current season's No. 1 show after 10 weeks — that snared the night's most viewers.

Ratings: Modern Family Hits Season Low in Demo

Modern Family

ABC's Wednesday lineup came back after making way for the 45th annual CMA Awards last week. All its shows declined from their previous outings, according to Nielsen overnight figures. Modern Family, while reaching its usual night-leading numbers in viewership (12.88 million) and demo rating (5.5), declined to a season low in the industry-standard 18-to-49 crowd. NBC's Harry's Law also hit a season-low in the demo (1.1). And without the CMAs as competition, CBS' lineup rose.
