- Despite a relatively uncompetitive night with CBS originals sitting out, the only show to benefit was Last Man Standing, up a solid three ticks from last week's abnormally low result against CBS' huge Rudolph special.
- Among the horror stories: Fox's whole lineup was down multiple tenths from last week. (But Glee gained a tick in finals to once again barely avoid its first sub-3.0 rating since 2009.) And Body of Proof's encouraging without-DWTS start last week was short-lived, as it crashed to three tenths below any previous result.
