ABC came in fourth place on Tuesday night, behind an increasingly weak slate of programming. “V” held steady however with a 1.9 demo. That’s in cancellation range for the network, but it outdrew the other two programs on ABC’s slate. Might ABC renew the drama? Unlikely, but if “V” can rise to a 2.0, it will make a case for a truncated third season. “No Ordinary Family” drew a 1.4 rating in the demo; it will surely be cancelled.
On CBS, “NCIS” and “NCIS: Los Anageles” both led their respective hours and were among the top programs on television. “The Good Wife” fell to second in its hour, and more importantly, drew just a 1.9 in the demo, less than half of the 3.9 demo “NCIS:LA” drew in the hour proceeding. While “The Good Wife” draws a lot of critical acclaim, its very difficult to see CBS renewing such a low rated drama. If the ratings trend continues, it will firmly move from the bubble, to likely to be cancelled.
“Glee” was up from last week with a 4.3 demo, while “Raising Hope” was about normal with a 2.5. “Traffic Light” drew a 1.7, and is sure to be cancelled.
