‘I Hate My Teenage Daughter” had been slated to head to Summer Burnoff Theatre anyway, but not until after its April 3 telecast. Instead, Fox has decided that it could do better with repeats of “Raising Hope” in the Tuesday-at-8:30 p.m. time slot for the next two weeks.

Yet “Teenage Daughter” — attracted 2.9 million viewers — was not Fox’s worst-performing show Tuesday night. At 9:30 p.m., “Breaking In” attracted 2.8 million. “Breaking” did only slightly better than “Daughters” among 18- to 49-year-old viewers, but still scored less than half the crowd copped by the Fox comedy “New Girl” on that night.

Fox’s “Teenage Daughter” decision was bad news for ABC’s time-slot competitor, “Cougar Town,” which generated its biggest audience (4.4 million) since its season debut five weeks earlier. ABC boasted Wednesday that “Cougar Town” had “ towered” over Fox’s competing comedy Tuesday night, with 52 percent more viewers — 33 percent among the 18- to 49-year-olds who are the currency of the TV industry.
