RATINGS RAT RACE: 'Loser' Hits Fall Low, 'Body Of Proof' Rises, CW Dramas Drop

It seems like most of the TV action last night was on TNT and TBS, which carried the baseball playoffs. The Big 4 broadcast networks didn’t deliver any major ratings bombshells this morning, with most series down just a notch from last week — a possible effect from baseball — while the CW dramas took a blood bath.

Fox’s Glee (3.5/10 in adults 18-49) and New Girl (4.3/11) were each down a tenth from their fast national demo ratings last week, while Raising Hope (2.9/7) was flat. New Girl once again ranked as the top-rated program of the night in 18-49 as did Fox (3.6/9, 7.9 million) in the network race.

All CBS dramas — NCIS (4.1/12, 18.9 million), NCIS: LA (3.4/8, 14.7 million) and Unforgettable (2.4/6, 11.3 million) — were also down a tenth each from last week’s fast nationals. CBS (3.3/9, 15 million) was No. 1 in total viewers and second in 18-49.

ABC’s Dancing With The Stars result show (2.8/7) matched its fast national result from last week, while sophomore drama Body Of Proof (2.1/5) reversed its downward ratings trend, up 11% from its preliminary number last week. (Because of regular Dancing overruns, the ratings for its lead-outs are always approximate.)

NBC’s The Biggest Loser (2.0/5) and Parenthood (2.0/5) were both down two tenths from last week’s fast nationals. For Loser, this marks the lowest-rated fall telecast ever.

Alarming week-to-week drops for the CW dramas: Ringer (1.5 million, 0.6/2) was down 33% in 18-49, and 90210 (0.6/2, 1.3 million) was down 25%.
