Fox Enjoys a Glee-ful Ratings Victory

Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith

Glee's Christmas episode led Fox to a decisive victory Tuesday night, while even reruns of the reliable NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles on CBS pulled in big audiences.

At 8, the fall finale of Glee posted a 4.4 rating in the adults 18-49 demo and 11 million total viewers. NCIS scored a 2.0 rating with 11.8 million, and ABC's A Charlie Brown Christmas posted a 2.6 — down 30 percent from last year's airing -- with 8 million. (The animated holiday special was the most popular show on Tuesday night with kids aged 2-11.) Elsewhere, NBC's Minute To Win It won... read more

Tonight's TV Hot List: Tuesday, Dec. 7, 2010


8/7c Fox
With Rachel and Finn in Splitsville, and Will clearly heartbroken about Emma and Carl's quickie wedding, New Directions might need a little Christmas as the show heads into its winter's nap. (Tonight's holiday-themed show is the fall finale.) True, the kids did advance to Regionals last week, along with the Warblers (so we'll still see a lot of Kurt when new episodes resume next year), but the overall vibe could be better. And, of course, there's a Grinch to contend with at McKinley High. You can imagine who she is. — Paul Droesch

One Tree Hill

One Tree Hill
8/7c CW
Some naysayers thought this show would fall victim to the WB-UPN merge; others predicted it couldn't overcome losing core characters Lucas and Peyton. But it did indeed survive and is now entering its eighth season. The action picks up right where May's eventful cliffhanger left off, with Clay and Quinn facing life-threatening injuries after being shot by Katie. Meanwhile, others embrace life-changing events: Brooke and Julian are newly engaged, and Haley and Nathan prepare for a second child.

Ratings: Were Hellcats' Numbers Worth Cheering About?

Ashley Tisdale, Hellcats

The CW's Hellcats kicked off the broadcast networks' fall TV season with a meow rather than a roar.

Fall TV Popularity Contest: What did you think of Hellcats and Terriers?

The cheerleading drama drew a solid-if-not-stellar 3 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, according to overnight Nielsen estimates. Predictably, the show's rating improved to 1.4 among the CW's target demo of adults 18-to-34.

However, the premiere did improve slightly over its America's Next Top Model lead-in, which drew 2.9 million viewers in its lowest-rated premiere ever. Hellcats also doubled the numbers of The Beautiful Life: TBL, the quickly canceled series that debuted in that timeslot last year... read more

Ratings: Sons of Anarchy Gets Off to Fast Start

Sons of Anarchy

The Season 3 premiere of Sons of Anarchy roared out of the gate, according to early Nielsen estimates.

Sons of Anarchy: How will Jax handle his "emotional devastation"?

Tuesday's episode drew 4.12 million viewers, ranking as the series' third most-watched episode just behind the Season 2 finale (4.33 million viewers) and the Season 2 premiere (4.29 million viewers). The show also drew 2.81 million viewers in the coveted adults-18-to-49 demographic, making it basic cable's highest-rated episode of scripted TV in 2010.

NBC's sleeper-hit summer game show takes the network's current penny-pinching ethos and turns it into a virtue: The show's stars (aside from chef-turned-host Guy Fieri, who adds just the right amount of extra cheese) are cheap, common household objects like Kleenex boxes, paper clips and water bottles. They're used in challenges that must be completed in 60 seconds for players to advance towards the $1 million jackpot.... read more
