Bravo's 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' (0.46, 1.38 million) was just a hundredth behind in W18-49 (0.64), but trailed a bit more among 18-34 (0.29) and F12-34 (0.3).

In cable news, 'Tucker Carlson Tonight,' on Fox News, remained atop the ratings, delivering a 0.38 in 18-49, 0.64 in 25-54, and 4.28 million viewers. On that same net was 'Hannity' (0.31/0.57, 3.91 million) and 'Ingraham Angle' (0.27/0.46, 3.21 million). CNN's line-up all pulled similar numbers with 'Cuomo Primetime' (0.28/0.41, 1.89 million) on top and 'CNN Tonight' (0.26/0.40, 1.53 million) & 'Anderson Cooper 360' (0.26/0.39, 1.83 million) close behind.
MSNBC was strong with 'Rachel Maddow' (0.28/0.42, 3.27 million), but 'Lawrence O'Donnell' (0.19/0.29, 2.6 million) and 'Chris Hayes' (0.17/0.27, 2.13 million) were just OK.
