Tuesday night's fast nationals: This just in: Glee is popular, especially among 18-49s. That helped Fox to the demo win, though CBS's NCIS led that network handily to a win in total viewers. The new shows had meh results. Josef Adalian analyzes.
Some ratings tweets:
Zap2ItRick: Of the newbies, Detroit 1-8-7 had the most viewers with just under 10 mill, though that'll probly come down some since DWTS ran over. Ditto Raising Hope, which did a respectable 3.1 demo but will drop a bit because Glee ended after 9. Finally, ABC says its DWTS results show (at 9; the first hour was a "recap special") had its best premiere ever. 18.3 million
thefutoncritic: Glee's 5.5 adults 18-49 rating is show's second best ever, tops all non-Idol airings for FOX on Tuesdays last season. As for new series, DETROIT 187 (-3.8%), RAISING HOPE (-11.4%), RUNNING WILDE (-28.6%) all down from FORGOTTEN, HELL'S KITCHEN, resp. Other YTY notes: GLEE (+71.9%) vs HK; PARENTHOOD (+4.2%) vs JAY LENO; LIFE UNEXPECTED (-12.5%) vs MELROSE; OTH (-18.2%) vs 90210
weinmanj: Fox must be happy with the ratings for Glee, which is a genuine hit even if you don't look at the demos (and a smash in the demos).
badgate: On Tuesday night two most watched networks had the highest median ages CBS 16.3 million viewers (57.1) & ABC 13.4 million (55.9)...The Live + Same Day audience for Glee last night was nearly three million higher than live only.
