People continued to turn away from Traffic Light. After scathing reviews, Fox's relationship comedy premiered to 4.6 million viewers last week. This week, that number dropped to 3.6 million — while also plummeting 21 percent in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49 demographic. Have those green/yellow/red jokes on stand-by.
Overall viewership was down Tuesday night, even for stalwarts NCIS and Glee. The CBS procedural pulled in 19.5 million viewers, while Fox's musical/dramedy got 10.5 million; last week, the shows attracted 20.3 million and 11.5 million, respectively.
Also in prime-time's first hour Tuesday, The Biggest Loser: Couples drew nearly 7 million on NBC (vs. last week's 7.9 million), No Ordinary Family on ABC 5 million people (vs. 5.2 million last week) and the CW's One Tree Hill 1.7 million (up from 1.6 million).
At 9/8c, Loser gained in its second hour as usual (8.4 million vs. last week's 8.8 million), while Fox's Raising Hope got nearly 5.6 million (compared with 6.8 million) and hit a series-low 2.2 demo rating (down 19 percent).
With NCIS down somewhat, so were the shows that follow it. NCIS: Los Angeles, at 9/8c, pulled in 16.8 million (vs. 17.1 million), and The Good Wife garnered 11.4 million viewers at 10/9c (vs. 11.8 million).
