private practice 0424 TV ratings: 'Glee' and 'Private Practice' improve Tuesday but '90210' is lowFast National ratings for Tuesday, April 24, 2012

“Glee” rebounded some Tuesday from its season-low ratings of a week ago, and more people found “Private Practice” in its new timeslot on ABC as well. ABC also got a little bump from “Cougar Town.”

Elsewhere, “The Voice” results show was about even with last week, falling a tenth of a point in adults 18-49 but still topping the night in the demographic. The first new episode of “90210” in more than a month came in a little below average for The CW, while the premiere of “The L.A. Complex” was pretty much ignored.

Despite airing a slate of reruns, CBS still led the night in viewers with 9.9 million and a 6.6 rating/10 share in households. ABC (9.3 million, 6.2/10) finished second. NBC took third with 6.7 million viewers and a 4.2/7, beating out FOX’s 5.5 million and 3.5/6. The CW (908,000, 0.6/1) brought up the rear.

FOX scored a 2.4 rating among adults 18-49 to beat out NBC’s 2.3 for the top spot. ABC finished third in the demographic with a 2.0, followed by CBS, 1.7, and The CW, 0.5.
