CBS’s NCIS wasn’t showing the slightest signs of faltering in its old age as Tuesday’s episode attracted 20 million viewers. Against it, the series debut of ABC’s cross-dressing comedy Work It didn’t stand a chance. (Awful reviews didn’t help either. Time magazine’s James Poniewozik called it “the kind of bad dumb show you will use in years to come as a benchmark for other bad sitcoms.”) It drew just 6.1 million viewers. ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap didn’t do much better against the NCIS spinoff, NCIS: Los Angeles, which drew 17.1 million viewers. Wife Swap wound up with 6 million viewers.
