Fashion Star didn't find any runway success Tuesday night.

The reality show's 90-minute premiere opened to 4.5 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demo. Although it did manage to win the demo against a new Body of Proof (7.28 million, 1.4) and an Unforgettable repeat (7.26 million, 1.3), Fashion Star shed 20 percent from lead-in The Biggest Loser (6.3 million, 2.0), which tied its season-low rating. Fashion Star was also below timeslot predecessor Parenthood's season average.
