Fox took second with a 1.8/5. Raising Hope was even with a 1.7 in its regular time slot; a second episode was down two tenths to a 1.5 (but three tenths higher than what the canceled Ben and Kate drew). New Girl was up 14% to a 2.5 and Mindy Project rose 13% to a 1.7.
NBC's rookie duo of Go On and The New Normal continued their struggles with a much-weaker lead-in as each fell a tenth to a 1.2 and 1.1, respectively. Betty White's Off Their Rockers was down two tenths in its 8 p.m. episode to a 1.4 and down 17% with a 1.5 at 8:30 p.m. With Parenthood having aired its season finale last week, Dateline took over the time slot for a week and drew a 1.3. Next week, Smash takes over. NBC tied with ABC for third (but had more overall viewers) with a 1.3/4.
ABC's The Taste fell 24% from last week's two-hour premiere to a 1.6. Happy Endings was down from its last Tuesday episode to a 1.2, then gained a tenth in its second episode for a 1.3 (ABC doubled up on Happy Endings to replace the removed Don't Trust the B----). The primetime re-airing of last week's Matt Damon Jimmy Kimmel Live takeover drew a 1.2.
The CW rounded out the night with a 0.5/1. Hart of Dixie drew a 0.5 in both demos, which was off by a tenth from last week for each. Emily Owens, M.D. was down a tenth with 18-49s to a 0.4.
