Ratings: ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Down, ‘NCIS’ Locks Up Top Spot

Mark Harmon and company take the evening, while “DWTS” takes a dip

Much like Kirstie Alley, "Dancing With the Stars" experienced a bit of a drop on Tuesday — and "NCIS" seized the opportunity to become the night's most-watched show.

CBS' "NCIS" at 8 p.m. drew a 3.6/11 in the demo and 18.7 million total viewers, while a repeat of "NCIS: Los Angeles" the following hour garnered a 2.7/7 in the demo and 12.5 million viewers. "The Good Wife" finished out the evening at 10 with a 2.0/5 in the demo and 10.5 million total viewers, a five percent bump in the demo from the previous week.

ABC's dancing competition at 9 p.m. drew a 3.1 rating/8 share in the demo and 15.5 million total viewers, compared to last week's 4.2/11 in the demo and 18.8 million total viewers. The network led off its primetime roster at 8 p.m. with the season finale of "No Ordinary Family," which ran flat compared to its last original episode on March 22, at a 1.5/4 in the demo and 5.6 million total viewers. "Body of Proof" at 10 rounded out the evening with a 2.4/6 in the demo and 11 million total viewers. Though it slid 20 percent in the demo, it still won its time slot for a second week.

At NBC, "The Biggest Loser" at 8 was flat compared to last week's performance with a 2.7/8 in the demo and 7.3 million total viewers. "Parenthood," at 10, was also flat with a 1.9/5 in the demo and 4.7 million total viewers.

On Fox, a "Glee" rerun at 8 scored a 1.2/4 in the demo and 3.8 million total viewers, a "Raising Hope" repeat the following hour netted a 1.1/3 in the demo and 2.9 million total viewers, and a "Traffic Light" repeat at 9:30 earned a 0.9/2 in the demo and 2 million total viewers.
