Tuesday Ratings: 'Lost' ties series low, 'Parenthood' slips

From THR:

The second night of daylight savings time was rough for broadcast, with every major network show dropping in the ratings compared to their last originals.

Of particular interest: ABC's Lost (8.8 million viewers, 3.8 preliminary adults 18-49 rating), airing up against a two-hour American Idol (22.6 million, 8.0), tied its lowest-rated episode ever. And the third week of NBC's Parenthood (5.9 million, 2.3) fell 12%.

So Fox came out on top. CBS was second with NCIS (17.6 million, 3.4) down 11% to hit a season low, "NCIS: LA" (15 million, 3.2) down 9% and "Good Wife" (13.4 million, 2.7) winning 10 p.m. and slipping 4%. NBC placed third with "Biggest Loser" (7.2 million, 2.7) and ABC was fourth.

On the CW, 90210 (1.5 million, 0.9) and Melrose Place (2009) (1.4 million, 0.6) continued to underperform, though posted gains among female viewers since their return from hiatus last week.
