TV's most heartbreaking deaths

It was mostly bad news all around, unless you were CBS, which coasted to another win led by

NCIS (20.9 million, 3.5). ABC's revamped Body of Proof (6.7 million, 1.2) returned 45 percent lower and shed more than half of lead-in The Bachelor's rating (8.1 million, 2.6).The CW's Cult (941,000, 0.3) also had an anemic premiere, well below timeslot predecessor Emily Owens, M.D.'s debut (1.7 million, 0.5).Fox's comedy lineup was also down across the board.
