Note to Barbara Walters: Maybe you shouldn’t reveal your fascinating list before the show actually airs? Despite drawing over 10 million last night for the annual special, ABC - along with FOX - lost out to CBS in both the viewers and the demos.

NBC easily outweighed the competition last night. Tuesday’s finale of The Biggest Loser tallied its best ratings since the fall 2005 ender. That meant a double-win for the network. Meanwhile, a new Disney creation was a bright spot for ABC yesterday.

Last night’s presidential address did little for ABC but a lot for NBC. Yesterday’s episode of The Biggest Loser gave its network a win in the demos. (An absent Jay Leno also helped in that matter.) Meanwhile, a post-DWTS ABC placed fourth in both the viewers and the demos.

The Forgotten's Christian Slater8pm

  • The presidential address (1.9/6 in 18-49) pulled in 10.2 million for CBS.
  • NBC’s political coverage (2.1/6) raised 8.1 million.
  • Approximately 7.5 million watched President Obama on ABC (1.7/5).
  • FOX (1.8/5) catered to 4.6 million.
  • (1.1/3) settled for 2.2 million.

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes

If you’re still questioning Katie Holmes’ performance on So You Think You Can Dance, this tidbit may keep that jaw dropped. During a recent interview with E!, the actress said she agreed with choreographer/judge Mary Murphy: Tom Cruise would make the perfect SYTYCD guest judge.

Murphy said back in October:  “I happen to love Tom, and Tom loves dancing, so it would be great.” (But does that exactly qualify him to be a judge?) Holmes then seconded that opinion this weekend at a Dizzy Feet Foundation event. “He would be great. He really would,” Holmes claimed. (See what you started, Ellen?)

So if Cruise were to someday visit the program, does that mean we would get another dance number from Katie as well? “I don’t know. I don’t know, but it was a great time,” Holmes stated.

Sorry, Kelsey - but you were just replaced by a repeat. A repeat (Modern Family) that did better than your last appearance. A repeat that helped its lead-out (The Middle) pick up an additional 1 million over its previous outing.

Didn’t know Heather Locklear was moving back to Melrose Place? Apparently you weren’t the only who missed that invite. Locklear’s return to the famous address hardly raised an eyebrow last night. The CW program still pulled in under a 1.0 in the rating and trailed behind its lead-in.

Up until last night, Modern Family had been ABC’s bright spot in the demos—that is, until Taylor Swift came along. Yesterday’s broadcast of the CMA Awards - plus Swift’s win for Entertainer of the Year - helped the network pull off wins in both the viewers and the demos this Wednesday.

The novelty of aliens on Earth was bound to wear off sometime soon. After a spectacular debut just seven days ago, V fell 27% in the prime demos. Although that’s the largest Week 2 drop for any scripted show this season, the resulting number should still be pleasing to ABC.

  • (10.7 million, 3.8/10) lost 3.2 million.
