New Tv Shows Fail To Draw Viewers

Subscribe CBS

There was something for each of the broadcast networks to boast about in last week's Nielsen ratings race. CBS once again attracted the most viewers, but ABC and NBC tied for a win among the advertiser-prized adults 18-49 demographic. Fox, meanwhile, saw another strong performance from House. Not a single new show landed in the top ten, however. For the week, CBS averaged a 7.3 rating and a 12 share, down 10 percent from the comparable week a year ago. ABC placed second with a 7.1/12, off 3 percent from last year. NBC continued to struggle with a 5.8/10, down 11 percent from last year. Fox trailed with a 4.3/7, plummeting 16 percent from last year.

The top ten shows of the week according to Nielsen Research:
1. Dancing With the Stars (Monday), ABC, 13.1/19; 2. CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, CBS, 12.8/19; 3. Grey's Anatomy, ABC, 12.5/19; 4. Desperate Housewives, ABC, 11.2/17; 4. (tie) Sunday Night Football, NBC, 11.2/18; 6. Dancing With the Stars (Tuesday), ABC, 10.4/16; 7. House, Fox, 10.3/16; 8. NCIS, CBS, 10.2/16; 9. CSI: Miami, CBS, 9.8/16; 10. Criminal Minds, CBS, 9.5/15.
