* FOX. “Glee” hit another new all-time high (even without the help of “American Idol”!). It’s prior personal best was a 5.6. “Glee” is now indisputably the highest rated scripted series in primetime. “Raising Hope” didn’t rise with it and “Running Wilde” lost ground, hitting the lowest score of any Tuesday series on the Big Four. “Running Wilde’s” 1.9 is cancellation-worthy, but Fox has kept sitcoms (“Til Death,” “Brothers”) on with a lot less.

Everything hitting 4.0 or better over the last seven days: 8.5 (10.5) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) CBS Sunday Football 7.3 (9.2) (9.6) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) NBC Sunday Football 7.2 (6.1) (6.3) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) ESPN Monday Night Football 5.9 (5.6) (1.7) (1.6) (1.5) (1.6) (1.4) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) Glee 5.4 (1.8) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (-----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) Grey’s Anatomy 5.1 (1.5) (1.7) (----) (1.4) (1.2) (1.3) (1.4) (1.4) (1.7) (1.3) (1.4) (1.3) (1.3) Modern Family 4.9 (2.4) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (-----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) Big Bang Theory 4.8 (5.1) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) Dancing With The Stars (Monday) 4.8 (4.9) (2.3) (2.1) (2.6) (2.3) (2.4) (2.4) (2.2) (2.3) (2.1) (2.3) (2.2) (2.3) 2½ Men 4.5 (2.4) (2.1) (1.8) (----) (2.3) (2.3) (2.1) (2.2) (2.4) (2.1) (1.8) (1.3) (2.2) Family Guy 4.4 (1.2) (----) (1.0) (1.1) (1.1) (1.4) (1.2) (1.3) (1.5) (1.2) (----) (1.3) (1.0) The Office 4.3 (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) Desperate Housewives 4.1 (4.0) (1.8) (1.5) (1.2) (1.4) (1.3) (1.4) (1.4) (1.5) (1.5) (1.6) (1.8) (1.4) NCIS 4.0 (----) (1.6) (1.7) (1.6) (1.5) (1.6) (1.6) (1.6) (1.5) (1.4) (1.5) (1.3) (1.3) Criminal Minds 4.0 (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (-----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) Shit My Dad Says 4.0 (4.0) (----) (----) (----) (-----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) Survivor

* CBS. “NCIS” and “NCIS LA” both rebounded but are still down from their last fall. “The Good Wife” was down from its 3.1 season-one premiere last fall but won its timeslot for the first time since “Parenthood” premiered, besting both “Parenthood” and “Detroit 187.” “Wife’s” complete first-run track record looks like this:

2.5 - (2.0) (2.2) (2.4) (2.3) (2.2) (2.3) (2.6) (2.8) (2.7) (3.1) (2.6) (3.0) (3.0) (2.8) (2.8) (2.6) (2.8) (2.7) (2.8) (2.8) (2.9) (3.1) (3.1)

* ABC. The “No Ordinary Family” premiere was third in its timeslot with a 3.2, a little soft for an ABC sci-fi launch. ABC’s “V” premiere won that timeslot with a 5.0 last autumn. ABC’s “FlashForward” premiere won its 8 p.m. Thursday timeslot last fall with a 4.0. ABC’s final season premiere of “Lost” won its timeslot early this year with a 5.5. A newly Hoff-free “Dancing With The Stars” was down from the 4.4 it scored in the 9 p.m. slot last Tuesday but it was up if one averages both its hours from last Tuesday. “Detroit 187” slipped to an anemic 2.1 but it still (barely) beat the lowest-rated “Parenthood” ever. * NBC. “Biggest Loser,” which dominated Tuesdays all last season, just hit its lowest score since I started keeping track last September. “Parenthood,” which won its slot all last spring, hit its worst number ever. It spent its first 90 minutes in fourth place, rising to third at 9:30 p.m. by overtaking “Running Wilde.” Its prior nadir was a 2.3. * MTV. “Teen Mom” beat both NBC’s “Parenthood” and ABC’s “Detroit 187” at 10 p.m. and came dang close to beating first-place “The Good Wife” at that hour. I’m assuming this is an all-time high for the documentary series. Blame the promos on MTV’s Thursday megahit “Jersey Shore.” * FX. “Sons of Anarchy” hit its lowest score since I started keeping track last September. * THE CW. “One Tree Hill” rose a bit. “Life Unexpected” can probably expect an unexpectedly short life. * SYFY. “Stargate Universe” returned with a 0.5, way down from the 0.9 it scored with its series premiere last fall. Syfy’s Tuesday-night predecessor, “Warehouse 13,” never got below a 0.7 during its just-concluded run. SGU’s complete track record looks like this: 0.5 - (0.5) (0.4) (0.5) (0.6) (0.6) (0.6) (0.4) (0.5) (0.6) (0.6) (0.5) (0.8) (0.7) (0.7) (0.8) (0.8) (0.9) (1.0) (0.9)

First-Run Episodes of Returning Series Now On Tuesdays: 5.9 (5.6) - (4.7) (3.9) (4.8) (4.8) (4.8) (4.9) (5.2) (5.3) (5.6) (3.7) (3.6) (2.5) (3.3) Glee 3.8 (3.5) - (3.9) (2.5) (2.5) (2.4) (2.4) (2.4) (2.8) (2.5) (3.0) (4.3) (3.2) (3.5) (3.1) Dancing With The Stars 4.1 (4.0) - (3.3) (3.3) (3.9) (3.1) (3.5) (3.5) (3.5) (3.8) (4.0) (4.1) (4.3) (4.0) (4.3) NCIS 3.7 (3.4) - (2.7) (3.1) (3.3) (2.8) (3.2) (3.0) (3.2) (3.5) (3.1) (4.1) (3.6) (3.7) (3.0) NCIS LA 2.7 (2.9) - (3.9) (3.1) (3.4) (3.2) (2.8) (3.4) (3.3) (3.0) (2.8) (3.0) (2.8) (3.0) (3.2) Biggest Loser 2.5 - (2.0) (2.2) (2.4) (2.3) (2.2) (2.3) (2.6) (2.8) (2.7) (3.1) (2.6) (3.0) (3.0) (2.8) Good Wife 2.0 (2.5) (2.7) - (2.6) (2.7) (2.6) (2.5) (2.4) (2.9) (2.5) (2.6) (2.5) (2.7) (2.3) (2.6) Parenthood 1.6 (1.8) (1.8) (2.1) - (2.3) (1.7) (1.9) (1.9) (1.8) (1.8) (2.0) (1.8) (2.0) (1.9) (1.9) Sons of Anarchy 1.0 (0.9) (1.1) - (1.0) (1.1) (1.0) (1.0) (1.1) (0.9) (1.1) (1.0) (1.1) (1.1) (1.2) (1.1) One Tree Hill 0.7 (0.7) (0.8) - (0.9) (0.8) (0.9) (0.9) (1.0) (0.9) (0.8) (0.9) (0.9) (0.9) (1.0) (1.1) Life Unexpected 0.5 - (0.5) (0.4) (0.5) (0.6) (0.6) (0.6) (0.4) (0.5) (0.6) (0.6) (0.5) (0.8) (0.7) (0.7) Stargate Universe

    WHAT ABOUT BASEBALL: THE TENTH INNING???

    by wackybantha

    I thought it was pretty good.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 12:50 a.m. CST

    Raising Hope surprised me by making me laugh.

    by Saen

    Best sitcom Fox has made since well shit uhm Married with Children. Running Wilde was no surprise at all. Arnett and Cross just dont work without Bateman; you need the straight man. That is what made AD work.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 1:12 a.m. CST

    Shame about the ratings dip, Sons has been great.

    by Shermdawg

    I can understand it though, especially when compared to last year; but with that said, I've enjoyed the attempts to make the cast a bit more relatable this season.....well, as relatable as much as they can be. I totally wasn't expecting Hal Holbrook, but man I enjoyed that short arc with Gemma....especially with what it led to, including that hilarious royal cameo. "Where's WHO!?!" I gotta admit though, I'm a bit disappointed Taryn Manning is over in Ireland and will probably be the one bringing Abel back at some point, I'd love for Trixie (still lookin' fine as hell) to come to Charming, but I hear she's on that BSG spinoff thing or whatever it is on SyFy. Darn. <br><br> And while I enjoy the Irish element this year, I gotta admit, I've had to make good use of the closed captioning. But hey, I'd rather have a difficult time understanding the dialogue than having to put up with Henry Rollins' terrible fucking acting.

    Tenth Inning was brilliant

    by andrew coleman

    Loved it I have been recording every one of them. Glee was solid actually. But this proves one thing that football just rocks. Some of the match ups were not that great and still were rated high.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 2:40 a.m. CST

    fuck this

    by DioxholsterReturns

    i dont believe these numbers

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 3:06 a.m. CST

    Parenthood saw a 17% drop since last week

    by Faith

    EEK! I hope that number goes back up, or it will bye bye Braverman's. Good for No Ordinary Family, pretty strong number for the competition it was up against. Many assumed Biggest Loser would crush NOF, so it's good to see a reality show get smacked around and put in it's place.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 4:11 a.m. CST

    Running Wilde was great tonight

    by Bass Ackwards

    Hate the child narrator, but a lot of laughs. Big improvement over the pilot (and I liked the pilot). "The last thing you'll see on this earth, is my tear stained face shoveling dirt onto you." "...I'm going to SEE this?"

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 7:15 a.m. CST

    I really like Running Wilde

    by Stormshadow4life

    I'll be very disappointed if they cancel it. I laughed more at this ep than I did last night's Modern Family.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 7:39 a.m. CST

    ABC should be happy with NOF's 3.2 against GLEE & NCIS

    by SpyGuy

    Not to mention that it was 5th for the entire night. Can you look at ABC's schedule and think there are many other shows that would do that well against GLEE and NCIS?

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 8:11 a.m. CST

    NOF cancelled, PARENTHOOD cancelled

    by ForgetfulPete

    So how many episodes do you think before some genius at the network decides to move NOF to another night, confusing people about when it's on, then it'll go on hiatus and then disappear forever, only to see two episodes burnt off in the summer and then never airing again until a DVD comes out calling itself NO ORDINARY FAMILY: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON Vol 1? I predict two more episodes before this landslide begins. then it's a thankful bye-bye to another genre show that moves us one more step closer to all-reality-show tv all-the-time. That's where we're headed and that's what the future holds. Get ready for it and stop hoping for any kind of genre entertainment and you'll all be better off. It's what I've resigned myself to. Any time I see a new genre show I just sort of shrug and say "cancelled." I'd love to have a little magic camera that would let me look in on American households the moment THE EVENT happened on THE EVENT, too, so we could all hear the collective "Oh, gawd," and then the sound of channels clicking over to FAT CHICKS HAVE PROBLEMS.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 8:34 a.m. CST

    I am a GLEE fan...

    by blackwood

    ...but this week's episode was absolute garbage. Awful. I know lots of folk take issue with the kitschy-cheesy-gayee vibe of the show, but it has heart, and wit, and is at its best when it uses its pop to compliment and advance the story. Not when it slots the cast into warmed-over rehashes of music videos. Which is what this episode was in its entirety. Ugh.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 9:10 a.m. CST

    I haven't seen Running Wilde yet, but I agree...

    by Chewtoy

    ...Bateman's straight man was crucial to the show's humor.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 9:21 a.m. CST

    Glee

    by KoolerThanJesus

    Glee would be around the 10.0 mark if not for all the gay bars that show it each week so everyone gathers together to watch. Seriously I am gay and the one I go to screens it to at least 20 people each week. I know of others that do it too.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 10 a.m. CST

    Fox on Tuesday

    by thepoohguy

    Has become some of the best scripted regular broadcast TV in a long time. Running Wilde is actually the weakest of the night. Glee and Raising Hope are awesome! "I thought Dr. Pepper was a dentist"

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 11:27 a.m. CST

    Not surprised by slight SoA dip

    by Jack Burton

    This season has been a bit uneven, admittedly so I think some impatient viewers may be tuning out. However, this week showed the show was back at full strength. The Belfast situation is clearer and the meandering ACT ONE is definitely over now. Easily the best episode since last season's finale.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 12:10 p.m. CST

    Glee, best show on tv.

    by parissun

    Thank you.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 12:39 p.m. CST

    SoA has been slow

    by JaredP

    but thats not too surprising since they dont have a clear threat like the L.O.A.N. from last year

    "Glee" Reaches An All-Time High Along With Herc's Cock

    by derek_vinyard

    "glee", huh, herc? wow. i have two words for you: "pole" and "smoker".

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 2:13 p.m. CST

    Raising Hope

    by Adelai Niska

    Truly one of the worst concepts for a TV series to ever actually get made. How they sold it, I will never know. "It's a show about the orphaned baby of a dead serial killer being raised by poor people. And IT"S A COMEDY!!" <p> This is a concpt so bad it makes the "Leonard Nimoy as a psychic race car driver" pilot seem totally sensible.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 2:14 p.m. CST

    Glee is great, but this is no sophmore slump!

    no wonder Galileo was hated at his time.

    there wont be another space sci fi in a long while

    by DioxholsterReturns

    SGU is the only one yet got the lowest rating any TV show ever got ever. if nothing changes in the next weeks, im afraid youll find AICN announcing its cancellation, maybe then we will get a talkback.

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 8:12 p.m. CST

    SGU IS AWESOME!

    by jazzylg

    Too bad the ratings are so low, could be the poorly promoted schedule change. Only diehard fans knew about it. Anyway, soon the only sci-fi to view will be movies, comics and video games

  • Sept. 30, 2010, 10:16 p.m. CST
