Airing outside of its regular Wednesday/Thursday home once again, FOX's "The X Factor" delivered strong demo numbers, particularly in its second hour, leading the network to a win among young viewers. Overall, of course, it was CBS dominating the night with hourly wins for "NCIS," NCIS: Los Angeles" and "Unforgettable," which posted encouraging week-to-week gains.
Meanwhile, ABC's "Last Man Standing" took a big drop in its second week, but still provided a solid lead-in for the so-so "Man Up" premiere.
On to the numbers...
Among adults 18-49, FOX averaged a 3.8 rating for the night, beating CBS' 3.2 rating in the key demographic. ABC was a distant third with a 2.4 rating, followed by NBC's 1.9 rating. The CW trailed with a 0.8 rating.
Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 15.41 million viewers and a 9.6 rating/15 share in primetime, easily best of the night. ABC's 6.9/11 and 10.68 million viewers was just ahead of FOX's 5.9/9 and 10.15 million. There was then a big drop to NBC's 3.3/5 and 5.09 million viewers and another big drop to The CW's 1.1/2 and 1.62 million viewers.

ABC was third with "Last Man Standing" (10.2 million and a 3.0 key demo rating, down by more overall than in the demo) and "Man Up" (7.8 million viewers and a 2.4 key demo). NBC's "The Biggest Loser" slumped to 5.04 million viewers and a 1.8 key demo rating in fourth. On The CW, "90210" averaged 1.44 million viewers and a 0.7 key demo rating, down in viewers, but steady in the demo.
9 p.m. - CBS' "NCIS: Los Angeles" won the 9 p.m. hour overall with 15.33 million viewers and finished second with a 3.3 rating among adults 18-49.
