- It'll probably be one of the last "full-strength" days of 2011, and it was quite a competitive one. Fox brought The X Factor back over to Tuesday, and while it was the second-weakest airing yet for the show (and weakest non-Thursday), it did overall make Fox a bit stronger than usual. But X's typical growth in the 9/8c hour was stalled by the two-hour finale of Dancing with the Stars. Said finale was down more than 20% from last year, but that's pretty much been the norm all season.
- With Fox and DWTS stronger than usual, it was ugly elsewhere. CBS took a weirdly large hit, with NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles both at least three tenths weaker than any previous airing this season. NBC's Biggest Loser was also below average against the reality glut. And with ABC much stronger than usual at 10:00, Unforgettable also hit a low and Parenthood hit a new season low. 90210 hit an outright series low.
