Ratings: 'Dads' Finale Hits New Low Against Rising Olympics

Fox is the only of the English-language networks with new shows on Tuesday

Tuesday's Olympics’ telecast medaled for NBC, earning another easy win over the competition — this time with a 20 percent uptick versus Vancouver's comparable night in 2010.

Fox was the only network bold enough to air all original episodes versus the Sochi Games, with each show taking a predictable hit. The largest drop came from the two-episode “Dads” finale: the first episode tied the show's low, and the second one set a new one.

NBC was first in ratings with a 6.6 rating/18 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and first in viewers with an average of 23.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. The Sochi Winter Games was the only programming on the network's schedule.
