- As has been typical this season, Desperate Housewives proved it doesn't have much game anymore against big live events (or even mediocre-rated live events like last night's Academy of Country Music Awards (3.3) on CBS). That 2.9 is its second-lowest rating this season, beating only the 2.7 it managed on 2/13/11 against the Grammys. That makes this probably the show's least impressive showing considering the Grammys were about three times the size of this awards show.
- Lead-out Body of Proof then dropped 31% from its Housewives lead-in, a similar retention percentage to what it did after Dancing with the Stars on Tuesday, but the raw number is down a pretty stout 35% from the promising 3.1 premiere. I'm not a big believer in making judgments based on special airings, but this seems like a particularly weak one. We'll see how it holds up on Tuesday.
- With Fox's big animation guns in repeat mode, American Dad! tied a season low (and actually tied last week's repeat!) while The Cleveland Show hit a season low.
