Traffic Light signaled an increase this week to 4.1 million viewers — up from last week's 3.6 million, but still well below the premiere's 4.6 million two weeks ago. Fox's relationship comedy also leapt 21 percent to a 1.7 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49 demographic.
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.
OK, NCIS can't set a series high every week. Still, the CBS procedural nabbed 20.3 million viewers Tuesday night.
NCIS - Mark Harmon
Better a late bloomer than no bloomers at all. NCIS proves that.

Are there any good story lines coming up for Cristina and Owen on Grey's Anatomy? — Heather
NATALIE: Meredith and Callie might be on the baby train, but Cristina is definitely not. Which is bad news for Owen, who's going to start to get the procreation itch himself, according to Kevin McKidd. "They rushed into their marriage at the start of the season, and the conversations they never quite had on fundamental things about life, not just children, are going to start to creep back in," he tells us. "There are going to be some bumps for them."
I love Ann (Rashida Jones) and Chris (Rob Lowe) together on Parks and Recreation. What's next for them? — Barry
NATALIE: "There's a surprise twist to their relationship. Ann is very concerned that he is cheating on her," executive producer Mike Schur reveals. "[An upcoming] episode is about...
NCIS: Los Angeles
When last we saw Peter Cambor on NCIS: Los Angeles, his character, operational psychologist Nate Getz, was packing up his office for a secret assignment.
Exclusive: What's next for NCIS: Los Angeles' Nate?
Nate returns in Tuesday's episode, and while the team reunion may be sweet, don't expect an abundance of revelations about Nate's disappearance.
"The mystery still remains as to where exactly he's gone, but what you need to know is he's done some special training to improve the skill set he already has," Cambor tells TVGuide.com. "You get to see my new skills come to use, and I'll say it's not like he went to typing school."
Indeed, Nate goes undercover at a prison with Sam...

Question: I enjoy a good soap, which is probably why I've always liked Grey's Anatomy. However, I'm really questioning this whole baby plot. From what I've gathered online, a lot of the lesbian community appears to be truly offended by a storyline that they feel would never be imposed on a straight couple and I can definitely see their point. I've never seen a primetime TV show force a man to deal with a former/current girlfriend having someone else's baby. That tends to be a deal breaker. But my understanding is that Grey's isn't the first show to use this plot with a female couple. I think Shonda Rhimes has done a great job showcasing a diverse cast and attempting to be sensitive to all communities, which is why I'd love to know exactly why she's chosen to tell this particular story, with a man smack in the middle of the only gay couple on the show forever and ever if they're going to share custody of a child. — Jen
Matt Roush: Diversity works both ways on a show like Grey's Anatomy. No matter the gender, race or sexual orientation, everyone's an aggravating mess on this show, and no one is spared the contrivances of this brand of storytelling....
Bob Newhart and Mark Harmon
Four-plus decades after his start in television, Bob Newhart's appearance on NCIS attracted nearly 21 million viewers, just a week after its post-hiatus premiere nabbed a series-high 22 million viewers.
NCIS returned from hiatus to a series-high 22 million viewers on Tuesday, easily helping CBS win the night.
