  • Additionally, NBC’s new comedy The New Normal garnered a series low with a 1.6 rating and 4.35 million viewers.
  • One of the only gainers of the night was the CBS drama Vegas, which notched a 1.8 rating and 10.2 million viewers.  That’s up two tenths from last week’s 1.6 rating.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Tuesday, November 20th, including Go On, NCIS, The Mindy Project, Parenthood, and more.

NBC

  • The same can’t be said for new comedy The New Normal, which notched a series-low 1.6 rating and 4.35 million viewers.
  • Drama series Parenthood took a dive with a 1.6 rating and 4.52 million viewers, down from last week’s 1.9 rating.

CBS

  • CBS’ rock-solid procedural NCIS garnered a 3.0 rating and 16.47 million viewers for a drop of one tenth from last week’s 3.1 rating.
  • Also performing well was NCIS: Los Angeles, which was even with last week’s 2.8 rating in the demo and 15.06 million viewers.
  • New drama series Vegas saw a rise of two tenths with a 1.8 rating and 10.2 million viewers versus last week’s 1.6.

FOX

  • the-mindy-project-thanksgivingFox’s comedy block didn’t do so hot, as Raising Hope kicked things off with a 1.5 rating and 3.7 million viewers.  That’s a drop of one tenth from last week’s 1.6 rating.
  • New series Ben and Kate was even with last week’s underwhelming performance, as the episode garnered a 1.1 rating and 2.52 million viewers.
  • Guest appearances by Jamie Lee Curtis and Rob Reiner couldn’t prevent New Girl from hitting a series low with a 2.0 rating and 4.1 million viewers.  That’s a drop of two tenths from last week’s 2.2 rating.
  • A Thanksgiving episode of The Mindy Project was down three tenths from last week’s 1.6 rating to a 1.3 and 2.7 million viewers.

ABC

  • ABC’s Happy Endings also earned a series low with a 1.2 rating and 4.87 million viewers, dropping from last week’s 1.3 rating.
  • Not to sound redundant, but Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23 also hit a series low with a mere 0.9 rating and 3.2 million viewers.  That’s a drop from last week’s 1.1 rating, and it’s safe to say this show’s days are numbered.
  • Still destined to go out on a low note, Private Practice notched up a tenth from last week’s series low 1.1 rating, hitting a 1.2 and 4.14 million viewers.

The CW

  • Over at The CW, Hart of Dixie was down from last week’s 0.6 rating to a 0.5 and 1.2 million viewers.
  • Emily Owens M.D. was even with last week’s paltry 0.4 rating and 1.27 million viewers.
