The fall of 2010 is looking quite bleak for many of the television networks; there have been no breakout hits, and many shows are sliding into cancellation territory very early.

“No Ordinary Family” continued its downward trend last night, drawing a 2.3 rating and 7.6 million viewers at 8 p.m. “Dancing with the Stars” was better at 9 p.m, averaging 15.6 million viewers and a 3.4 rating. “Detroit 1-8-7” remained low at 10 with a 1.7 rating and 7.5 million viewers.

Fox is having similar woes, but at the end of the night. “Glee” is still the highest rated scripted show on television, averaging a 4.6 rating and 11 million viewers. “Raising Hope” still had some hope with a 2.6 rating and 6.3 million viewers. But at 9:30, “Running Wilde” averaged only 3.5 million viewers and a 1.5 rating. Expect it to get canceled very soon.

CBS was typically strong with “NCIS” drawing a 3.9 rating and 19 million viewers. “NCIS: LA” pulled a 3.5 rating and 16 million viewers. “The Good Wife” led at 10 p.m. with a 2.6 rating and 11.7 million viewers.

NBC had a rough night; “The Biggest Loser” drew a 2.6 rating and 7 million viewers from 8-10; “Parenthood” was weak with a 1.9 rating and 4.7 million viewers at 10. With those numbers, it may not get immediately canceled—but it’s not coming back next fall.
