TV ratings: 'Last Man Standing' solid, 'Man Up' so-so; 'NCIS' and 'X Factor' lead
Week two of "Last Man Standing" held up reasonably well for ABC Tuesday night. The premiere of "Man Up" did a decent job of retaining its lead-in audience but still didn't quite live up to the strong debuts of some other comedies this season.
"NCIS," as usual, scored the night's biggest overall audience, and a Tuesday edition of "The X Factor" gave FOX a win among adults 18-49. Elsewhere, the "Dancing With the Stars" results took a big tumble, and "Ringer" was up a little bit from last week on The CW.
CBS averaged 15.4 million viewers and a 9.6 rating/15 share in households for the night. ABC (10.7 million, 6.9/11) finished second, a little bit ahead of FOX (10.15 million, 5.9/9). NBC was fourth with 5.1 million viewers and a 3.3/5, while The CW drew 1.6 million viewers and a 1.1/2.
FOX led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 3.8 rating, beating CBS' 3.2. ABC came in third with a 2.4. NBC scored a 1.9 in the demo and The CW a 0.8.
