CBS wins the night...
Several shows had increased ratings yesterday, including Glee, which had its biggest audience since October due to the return of several characters. ABC's Scandal did better than normal (getting a season high in the demographic) and The CW's dramas were also up. CBS' lineup was down from normal but still enough to win the night. Liz Lemon's wedding on 30 Rock had an increase but not enough to move the network out of fourth place in that timeslot.
CBS won with 13.4 million viewers and an 8.3 rating/13 share in households in primetime. It was followed by FOX (7 million, 4.3/7), ABC (6.9 million, 4.6/7), NBC (3.4 million, 2.3/4) and The CW (2.7 million, 1.7/3).
In the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS won again with a 3.3 rating, followed by FOX (2.5), ABC (2.1), NBC (1.2) and The CW (1.1).
