Zooey Deschanel's sitcom, 'New Girl,' starts with big ratings; 'Glee' dips
Zooey Deschanel's "New Girl" opened strong Tuesday night on the tube, while the third season premiere of "Glee" hit a sour ratings note.
"Glee" attracted 8.9 million viewers Tuesday, a 32% drop from last fall's hyped second season premiere, ew.com reports.
Fox's "New Girl," starring indie film darling Deschanel,
opened with about 10 million viewers
, USA Today reports. The quirky show was created by "No Strings Attached" writer Liz Meriwether, a former Michigander and daughter of former Free Press publisher Heath Meriwether.
CBS's returning "NCIS" (19.5 million) and "NCIS: LA" (16.7 million) both made strong showings, and Poppy Montgomery's new procedural, "Unforgettable," scored 14 million viewers and won its 10 p.m. time slot.
ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" -- which sent its first dancing star home Tuesday (that would be Metta World Peace, the NBA player formerly known as Ron Artest) -- drew 14.5 million viewers, a 36% drop from its first results show last fall.
Congratulations, Z! Your show is great!
i'd rather live it 'cause dreamers always chase but never get it
