Justified drew 4.2 million viewers Tuesday night, making it FX's biggest series premiere since The Shield debuted to 4.8 million viewers in 2002, the network said. The new drama ranked No. 1 on cable for the night in overall viewers and even beat the broadcast networks at 10/9c among men 18-to-49.

CBS placed second for the night, but saw all its shows fall in the demo versus their last new episodes...

Parenthood, meanwhile, drew 8.1 million viewers, despite NBC's continuous promotion during the heavily watched Winter Olympics. The show retained most of its Biggest Loser lead-in (8.3 million viewers), which wasn't much of a boost, considering Loser was down 11 percent from its last episode before the Olympics.
The silver lining for NBC, however, is that Parenthood won the 10/9c timeslot in the demo, which was good enough to move the network to third place overall for the night...
