Private Practice isn’t look too flush as it works through its farewell run.

The ABC drama this Tuesday night drew just 3.7 million total viewers while mustering a 1.1 demo rating, dropping 20 percent from its last fresh outing to hit all-time lows. As such, it also placed third in the 10 o’clock hour behind both Vegas and Parenthood.

NOTE: ABC has scheduled a double helping of Private Practice for next week, airing the Addison POV episode in the regular Tuesday slot, then adding in the Jake-centric outing on Wednesday at 10/9c (bumping a Nashville repeat).

Also tumbling hard this week was Fox’s Ben and Kate, which with 2.5 million total viewers and a 1.1 rating fell 17 and 21 percent and tied ABC’s Apartment 23 for last place amongst Tuesday’s 172 sitcoms.

The CW, meanwhile, had a good night. Hart of Dixie (1.7 mil/0.7) rose double digits to hit a season high in the demo and draw its largest audience in nearly a year. Emily Owens in turn surged more than 30 percent to 1.43 mil/0.4.


8 pm | NCIS (16.9 million total viewers, 3.0 rating) was down 12 percent in the demo to a season low, but of course outdrew all Tuesday comers. Similarly, The Voice (11 mil/3.8) slipped 9 and 17 percent from its most recent Tuesday telecast yet still easily led the night in the demo. Dancing With the Stars (12 mil/1.9) inched up. Raising Hope opened Fox’s night with 3.8 mil/1.6 (down 6 percent), but as noted, Ben and Kate squandered a third of that.

9 pm | NCIS: Los Angeles dominated with 15.7 mil/2.8, steady versus its last outing and outdrawing its ABC, NBC and Fox sitcom rivals combined. Speaking of which: NBC’s Go On (6.3 mil/2.3) dipped a tenth and The New Normal (4.8 mil/1.8) ticked up some. Fox’s New Girl (4.3 mil/2.2) dipped a tenth, but The Mindy Project (3.23 mil/1.7) rose 13 percent in the demo. And while ABC’s Happy Endings (4.8 mil/1.4) added a few eyeballs, Apartment 23 (3.2 mil/1.1) slipped a tenth in the demo to a series low.

10 pm | Parenthood (down a smidge to 4.74 mil/1.8) led the hour in the demo, while CBS’ Vegas (dipping a hair to 10.4 mil/1.6) of course had the biggest audience.
