NBC ranked #1 among ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX Tuesday night in 18-49 as the 9:30 encore of "Betty White's Off Their Rockers" and "Parenthood" ranked as the #1 and #2 shows of the night on those networks.

* From 8-10 p.m. ET, NBC aired encore telecasts of "Betty White's Off Their Rockers," which averaged a 1.3/3 in 18-49 and 4.9 million viewers overall at 8 p.m., a 1.5/4 in 18-49 and 5.1 million viewers overall at 8:30, a 1.6/4 in 18-49 and 5.7 million viewers overall at 9 and a 1.8/4 in 18-49 and 5.7 million viewers overall at 9:30. "Off Their Rockers" tied for #1 in 18-49 among ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX at 8, ranked #2 at 8:30, #1 at 9 and #1 at 9:30.

* The 9:30 telecast of "Betty White's Off Their Rockers" set series records for an encore in 18-49 and total viewers. These are the top four "Off Their Rockers" rebroadcasts ever in 18-49 and total viewers.

* Even counting originals, it's the top "Off Their Rockers" in 18-49 since the show's regular-slot debut last year (1.9 from 8-8:30 on Wednesday, April 4, 2012). In total viewers, it's the top "Rockers," original or encore, since April 25, 2012.

* From 10-11 p.m. ET, "Parenthood" (1.7/4 in 18-49, 5.2 million in total viewers) ranked #1 in The Hour over encore drama competition on ABC and CBS in 18-49 and all other key demographics.
