FOX Leads Tuesday Night Ratings This Week

Hugh Laurie  FOX’s medical melodrama House led the ratings on Tuesday, winning viewers over ABC’s Dancing With the Stars and Law & Order: SUV on NBC. Approximately 18.1 million viewers tuned in to watch House, the highest-rated premiere for any network so far this season. ABC’s dance-off won fewer viewers from the Monday lead-in, while CBS scored 13.7 million viewers with NCIS. CBS won big ratings with Cane, a show that’s been highly advertised by the network. But at the end of the day, House (and Hugh Laurie) still led the ratings game. Is this the year that FOX wins big ratings – for a show that’s not American Idol?
