Monday: "The Biggest Loser" (2.2 rating, 6 share in adults 18-49, 5.9 million viewers overall from 8-10:01 p.m. ET) equaled its highest 18-49 rating in five weeks (since January 28). In total viewers, "Biggest Loser" scored a five-week high and has generated a week-to-week increase for the last three weeks in a row. Versus last year's ninth episode, this week's "Biggest Loser" is up 10 percent in adults 18-49.

"Deception" (1.1/3 in 18-49, 3.4 million viewers overall from 10:01-11 p.m. ET) delivered a second straight week-to-week increase in total viewers to capture its biggest overall audience in five weeks.

Tuesday: "Go On" (1.1/3 in 18-49, 3.1 million viewers overall from 9-9:31 p.m. ET) maintained its 18-49 rating of the prior two weeks, despite this week's special competition from Fox's "American Idol." "Go On" maintained 100 percent of its 18-49 lead-in, its top retention to date in this time period.

Wednesday: "Whitney" (1.3/4 in 18-49, 3.8 million viewers overall from 8-8:30 p.m. ET) delivered its highest 18-49 rating in five weeks (since January 30) and biggest overall audience since January 9. "Whitney" generated week-to-week growth for a second straight week in both categories.

Thursday: "Community" (1.5/5 in 18-49, 3.3 million viewers overall at 8 p.m. ET) jumped week to week by 25 percent in 18-49 rating (to a 1.5 from a 1.2) and 19 percent in total viewers (3.4 million vs. 2.8 million) to deliver the show's top results in both categories in four weeks (since its season premiere on February 7). In men 18-34, "Community" tied Fox's "American Idol" for #2 in the time period among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.

"Parks and Recreation" (1.0/3 in 18-49, 2.3 million viewers overall at 8:30 p.m. ET) and "The Office" (1.1/3 in 18-49, 2.3 million viewers overall at 9) each generated their highest 18-49 ratings so far this season for an encore telecast.

Friday: "Grimm" (1.5/5 in 18-49, 4.9 million viewers overall at 9 p.m. ET) ranked as the #1 drama of the night on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in 18-49, decisively out-rating head to head CBS's "Golden Boy" (1.0/3) and Fox's "Touch" (0.7/2).

"Grimm" is up 7 percent versus the 1.4 for last year's mid-season returning episode, which aired in mid January after a much shorter four-week break. Note that so far this season, "Grimm" originals have been growing by 73 percent over these next-day "live plus same day" numbers in 18-49 when Nielsen adds additional time-shifting viewership in "live plus seven day" results (to a 2.86 rating from a 1.65).

Sunday: "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice" (1.8/4 in 18-49, 5.0 million viewers overall from 9-11 p.m. ET) grew versus the prior week's season premiere by 6 percent in 18-49 rating (to a 1.8 from a 1.7) and built on NBC's results in the prior hour from 8-9 p.m. ET by 100 percent in 18-49 rating and 73 percent in total viewers.

For its second hour from 10-11 p.m. ET, "All-Star Celebrity Apprentice" ranked #1 among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49 and ranked #1 or tied for #1 among those networks in every other key demographic.
