Primetime Network TV Show Ratings: Tuesday, November 16, 2010 [finals]

No Ordinary FamilyLast night saw some serious drops and rises in the ratings. The biggest loser of the night was ABC’s No Ordinary Family which fell nearly 23% in the all-important 18-49 demographic ratings (when compared to the last original episode).

This is easily a new series low. The Dancing with the Stars results program fell 15% but Detroit 1-8-7 remained the same. Unfortunately for the latter, it’s settled in at a low rating and is consistently in last place for the timeslot.

On CBS, NCIS: Los Angeles dropped 17.5% but the series saw essentially the same increase the previous week. On NBC, Parenthood fell more than 14% and that means the family drama hit another new low.

On FOX, Glee was up by nearly 9% and Raising Hope saw an increase of 8%. At 8:30, a repeat of Raising Hope performed 31% better than the previous week’s Running Wilde episode. All the more reason to assume that Wilde is done.

On The CW, One Tree Hill was up by 12.5% in the 18-49 demo and up nearly 19% in the network’s targeted demo of women 18-34. It was negative news for Life Unexpected though. The drama was down 14% in the demo and down 15.4% with females 18-34. With numbers like these, it’s hard to imagine that the series will be coming back for more episodes.

Here’s how everything else measured up…

    I’m not a TV watcher typically. However the show Parenthood is one that I look forward to every week. I up’d my cable to include a DVR so I could record and not miss an episode. Not sure if that counts in the ratings or not…hope so. I’ve been anxiously going to the TV on Tuesday nights expecting to see the next episode. It seems to have disappeared?! I soooo hope it’s not off the air.
