TV Ratings: ‘Live to Dance’ Premieres Modest While ‘V’ Disappoints

Live to Dance & VIt was the night of the premieres on American Television: On CBS, Paula Abdul’s Live to Dance premiered, NBC aired the new season of The Biggest Loser and ABC brought V back after its more than seven months hiatus. But which network finished first on Tuesday?

ABC relocated No Ordinary Family (6.75 million viewers; Adults 18-49: 1.9 rating/5 share) back to its 8pm home but the ratings only held relatively steady opposite its previous first run on December 7, 2010.

Next was the season 2 premiere of V at a disappointing 6.58 million viewers and a 2.1/5 among adults 18-49. In comparison with its series premiere on November 3, 2009, this was a loss of a hefty 54 percent in total viewers and 60 percent in adults 18-49. Compared to its midseason debut on March 30, 2010, V dropped by 6 percent in total viewers and 25 percent in adults 18-49, but versus its season finale on May 18, 2010, the science-fiction series built by 21 percent in total viewers and kept stable in adults 18-49.

Detroit 1-8-7 closed the evening for ABC at a lackluster 5.16 million viewers and a 1.3/3 among adults 18-49 losing 24 percent in total viewers and 7 percent in adults 18-49 opposite its previous first run on December 7, 2010. Finally, ABC placed third in both age categories on Tuesday.

Over at CBS, Paula Abdul’s Live to Dance averaged 10.22 million viewers and a 2.4/6 in adults 18-49. This was a modest start for the dance competition show and its doubtless older-skewing. A repeat of NCIS reached 10.24 million viewers and a 1.8/5 in the demo. In the end, CBS scored Tuesday victory in total viewers but second in adults 18-49.

NBC aired the two-hour season premiere of The Biggest Loser: Couples (8.74 million viewers; A18-49: 3.3/9) followed by an all-new episode of Parenthood (6.03 million viewers; A18-49: 2.3/6), which climbed by 35 percent in total viewers and 21 percent in adults 18-49 in comparison with its previous first run on November 23, 2010. At the end of the day, NBC got second place in total viewers and celebrated Tuesday victory in adults 18-49.

FOX sounded the bell for the evening with a repeat of Glee (4.72 million viewers; A18-49: 1.7/5) followed by an original edition of Million Dollar Money Drop (3.79 million viewers; A18-49: 1.3/4) which fell to a series low in both age categories.

The CW capped off the evening with reruns of One Tree Hill (1.02 million viewers; A18-49: 0.4/1) and Life Unexpected (0.83 million viewers; A18-49: 0.3/1).
