- For the second Tuesday in a row, the big winner was Fox comedy New Girl, which significantly built out of the declining Glee and dropped just 6% from last week's premiere.
Expect a back nine for this one pretty soon.Toldja? Fox gave the show a back nine earlier today!
- The other new shows also did all right, with the CW's Ringer stabilizing and CBS' Unforgettable dropping by a fairly typical amount. However, as I said last week, I didn't think Unforgettable had a whole lot of margin for error, and it's likely used most of it up if it holds here.
- Among returnees, the NCIS pair was very slightly down from last week (with LA up to even in finals). The mothership was only barely behind New Girl as the night's top program. The only two week-to-week growers in the second Tuesday prelims were 90210 and Parenthood, each up a tick.
