'House' Tops Tuesday

TVWeek's James Hibberd: Rated

By Published on .

Fox's "House" led an uneventful Tuesday night in the ratings that also saw new series lows for ABC's "Cavemen" and CBS' "Cane."

Fox was on top with "Bones" (3.4 preliminary rating among adults 18 to 49) and "House" (7.0, down 9 percent from last week and not worried about it).

NBC, once again in second place, had "The Biggest Loser" (up a tick to a 3.4) and "Law & Order: SVU" (4.4).

In third, ABC had "Cavemen" (1.6), "Carpoolers" (on-par 1.9), a "Dancing With the Stars" results show (up slightly to a 4.1) and "Boston Legal" (up 11 percent to 2.9).

Fourth-place CBS was down slightly across the board—which is fine for "NCIS" (3.7) and "The Unit" (2.9), but a new low for "Cane" (1.8).

The CW had an on-par "Beauty and the Geek" (1.2), while "Reaper" jumped back up to its former average (1.2).
