NBC's comedies struggled without the benefit of a strong lead-in from The Voice. Go On fell 38% from its last episode to a 1.5 and The New Normal was down 24% to a 1.3. Parenthood also fell a tenth to a 1.9. The premiere of Betty White's Off Their Rockers drew a 1.5 at 8 p.m. and a 1.8 at 8:30 p.m. (the show's official premiere last spring drew a 1.8). NBC was still able to grab second however, with an overall 1.7/5.
Fox's comedy block returned mostly even from their last episodes in early December. Raising Hope, New Girl and The Mindy Project were all flat at 1.7, 2.0 and 1.5, respectively. Ben and Kate returned up 9% to a 1.2. Fox finished in third place with a 1.6/4.
ABC came in fourth with a 1.3/4. Following repeats of Modern Family and The Middle, Happy Endings was up a tenth from its last Tuesday airing to a 1.4, while Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23 was even with a 1.1. Private Practice was down 8% to a 1.1.
The CW (0.3/1) continued burning off its Emily Owens, M.D. episodes, earning a 0.3 rating with 18-49s, down a tenth from last week.
