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...

Question: I was wondering if you've seen the new Game of Thrones trailer that aired before Boardwalk Empire. It looks like HBO is putting a lot of promotion into the series, but I'm wondering if TV audiences will give a fantasy show, even on HBO, a chance. The series isn't fantasy in the Lord of the Rings style of high magic, magical races and so on, so I'm hopeful that many people who are turned off by classic fantasy tropes may give it a try. It seems like many people dismiss fantasy as a genre out of hand, which puzzles me, because isn't True Blood a fantasy series? Vampires, werewolves and fairies aren't exactly reality. Game of Thrones is a character-driven series with captivating characters, compelling story arcs with many twists and turns, and some fantastic acting talent including Sean Bean, Peter Dinklage, Lena Headey and more. Do you think audiences will give it a chance? — Rob
Matt Roush: If the series is anywhere near as good as the books, I hope and trust the HBO faithful will check this out...

Dancing with the Stars crowned its 11th winner, and the show was ratings champion as well.
The two-hour finale averaged 24.1 million viewers Tuesday and 5.3 rating among the 18-to-49 demographic. The show was up 23 percent in the demo over last year's fall finale, and easily led ABC to an overall victory for the night. ABC's No Ordinary Family, which led into Dancing, drew 7 million viewers.

Archie Panjabi and Scott Porter are combustible super sleuths that have the chemistry of Moonlighting's pre-hookup Mattie and David and the ruthlessness of Bonnie and Clyde. When The Good Wife's two warring legal investigators at Gardner, Lockhart & Bond share the screen, the heat is almost criminal. Panjabi (Kalinda) and Porter (Blake) share what makes them sizzle. ...
Tom Hanks, Conan O'Brien
This was a week dominated by the Coco Express (and the launch of Conan took some of my focus off prime time this week, so this will be a more selective roundup). Let's start there.

LATE NIGHT WITH COCO: If Conan O'Brien keeps creeping earlier and earlier onto the schedule with each step of his career (from 12:30 to 11:30 and now to 11/all times ET), eventually he'll be ready for prime time. But not really. As I noted in my insta-reaction to Conan's opening night, the move to basic cable (feeding nicely into Conan's self-mocking persona) is the equivalent of going from Broadway to off-Broadway. Ergo the hipster beard. Being the underdog suits Conan, and while his explosive opening ratings quickly came down to earth, it's clear that a significant slice of the younger fan base is thrilled to see this funky and deeply silly Irish folk hero of TV comedy get back in the game...
