NBC tops Tuesday demos

Univision claims night's No. 1 show

NBC drew the most young adults on the penultimate Tuesday of the year behind gameshow “Minute to Win It” and a “Saturday Night Live” repeat special, but it was Univision’s “Soy Tu Duena” that emerged the top demo draw.

According to preliminary nationals from Nielsen, “Saturday Night Live Presents: A Very Gilly Christmas” (2.3/7 in 18-49, 6.0 million viewers overall) won the 9-11 p.m. block among adults 18-49, especially dominating the 10 o’clock hour. And earlier, “Minute to Win It” (2.1/7 in 18-49, 7.0 million viewers overall) was just a tick out of the 18-49 lead from 8 to 9. For the night, NBC prevailed in 18-49 and 25-54 (tied with CBS).

Elsewhere, “Soy Tu Duena” (2.5/7 in 18-49, 5.8 million viewers overall) earned Univision a rare No. 1 program ranking for the night in both 18-49 and 18-34 (2.6/8). For the night, the Spanish-language broadcast giant placed third in key demos.

CBS had a solid second-place 18-49 performance and won the night in total viewers with repeats of regulars “NCIS” (2.2/7 in 18-49, 12.3 million viewers overall), “NCIS: Los Angeles” (2.1/6 in 18-49, 11.3 million viewers overall) and “The Good Wife” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 6.8 million viewers overall).

Fox opened with a repeat of “Glee” (1.3/4 in 18-49, 4.1 million viewers overall), followed by the second night of limited-run series “Million Dollar Money Drop” (2.0/6 in 18-49, 5.5 million viewers overall), which was up a tick vs. its two-hour premiere on Monday. The gameshow continues through Thursday.

ABC aired the second (and presumably last) part of the “Skating With the Stars” finale (0.8/3 in 18-49, 3.4 million viewers overall), and stayed at that very low level the rest of the way with encores of “No Ordinary Family” (0.8/2 in 18-49, 3.1 million viewers overall) and “Detroit 1-8-7” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 4.6 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: NBC, 2.3/7; CBS, 1.9/6; Univision, 1.8/5; Fox, 1.7/5; ABC, 0.8/3; CW, 0.3/1.

In total viewers: CBS, 10.1 million; NBC, 6.3 million; Fox, 4.8 million; ABC, 3.7 million; CW, 0.9 million.
