“Dance” posted a 3.0/9, down a tick from last week. Also down a tick was “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?” (1.8/6), giving Fox a win with a 2.4 rating/8 share.

NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” (2.1/7) grew one-tenth of a ratings point from last week. “Fear Itself” (1.5/4) stayed flat, and NBC placed second with a 1.9 rating/9 share.

“Swingtown” (1.9/6) on CBS slid again for its fourth straight week, dipping 10%. CBS ended the night with a 1.7 rating/6 share.

An update of “Hopkins 24/7,” “Hopkins” (1.6/5) debuted last night on ABC, which grabbed a 1.1 rating/4 share. “Hopkins” placed second in its hour against originals on both CBS and NBC.
