A slow Valentine's Day...
Ratings were mostly down all around last night as TV usage was down 5%. Because of this, NBC's Community had a large fall in the demographic from 1.9 in its premiere week to 1.1 last night. Meanwhile, ABC's Zero Hour had a weak debut with a 1.3 in the demographic. This also lowered Grey's Anatomy's ratings, but Scandal managed to hold on and beat Grey's in the demographic for the first time. Glee was down for FOX.
CBS won with 13.8 million viewers and an 8.4 rating/14 share in households. It was followed by FOX (8.75 million, 5.3/8), ABC (7.6 million, 5.0/8), NBC (3.5 million, 2.2/4) and The CW (1.9 million, 1.2/2).
In the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS won again with a 3.3 rating, followed by FOX (2.7), ABC (2.3), NBC (1.5) and The CW (0.8).
