new girl thanksgiving ratings Ratings: 'NCIS' reruns win viewers, 'New Girl' wins demo Tuesday nightFast national ratings for Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2011

Ratings were pretty par for the usual Tuesday course this week. “New Girl” and “Raising Hope” were down just a bit, and the “Michael Buble Christmas” special on NBC was up a little over typical “Biggest Loser” numbers.

CBS won the night with 10.9 million viewers and a 7.0 rating/11 share in households. NBC was second with 6.9 million, 4.4/7, followed by FOX at 6.4 million, 4.0/6 and ABC at 5.9 million, 3.9/6. The CW trailed with 1.2 million viewers, 0.8/1.

FOX won the 18-49 demo, however, with a 2.9, which is down .9 from last week’s winning rating of 3.8 for CBS. This week, CBS and NBC tied for second at 2.0, followed by ABC at 1.6 and the CW at 0.6.
