Finally a bit of good news for NBC. Even though the network faced another evening against American Idol, it did manage a second-place finish in the demos. Why? Nice returns for both The Biggest Loser and SVU. (The repeats on CBS also helped.)

Tuesday Ratings: Hellish Return for Reaper

Last night’s premiere of Reaper never really stood a chance. Although it was originally scheduled for a 9:00 debut, CW pitted the show against both American Idol and The Biggest Loser. (Had NCIS been new, the bleeding could have been worse.)

The addition of a 4th judge didn’t help American Idol‘s ratings last night. The series saw its lowest demo number for a premiere; it also had its smallest audience for an opener since 2004.
