We kick things off here over on NBC, which once again can celebrate the fact that “The Voice” recovered from its season-low performance last week, as a show that featured very little actual singing (at least when it comes to the sake of the competition) drew a 3.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Meanwhile, “Go On” (2.5), “The New Normal” (1.7), and “Parenthood” (1.8) were all up from their previous performances. We’re sure that the network may still want better ratings from the second half of their Tuesday schedule, but even still it’s hard to see any of these shows getting canceled right now.
On ABC, the big news was that the “Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars” finale surged up from last week’s 2.0 rating, as it went to a 3.0 that is only a slight decline from the spring finale. It is still the lowest-rated finale ever for the ABC show since it adopted its new format in season 2, but it is still hard to argue with these numbers (plus over 16 million viewers) when you wonder why the network keeps this show around.
There was even good news for Fox: “Raising Hope” (1.7), “Ben and Kate” (1.4), “New Girl” (2.3), and “The Mindy Project” (1.5) were all up from where they were a week ago, though both of the new shows on here are still very much in danger. As for CBS and The CW, they are only networks with any sort of bad news as “Vegas” (1.6) and “Emily Owens MD” (0.3) each matched their previous series lows.
