Barbara Walters and Rudolph in dead heat

0

OK, so “CSI” on CBS was the #1 show for the past week and “Grey’s Anatomy” on ABC was second, but we couldn’t resist putting the battle for 10th place in the headline. Not only was it a ratings tie for “Barbara Walters Presents” on ABC and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” on CBS, but “Cold Case” on CBS as well, which despite its name is not a seasonal offering.


All in all, CBS had another win in Households with a 6.6 rating and 11 share, followed by ABC 5.7/9, NBC 5.2/8, Fox 4.1/6, Univision 1.9/3, CW 1.7/3, MyNetworkTV 0.7/1, Telemundo 0.6/1, Ion 0.5/1, TeleFutura 0.1/1 and Azteca America 0.1/0. For the key 18-49 demo, it was CBS, a tie by ABC and NBC, Fox, Univision, CW, a three-way tie by Telemundo, TeleFutura and MyNetworkTV, and a final tie by Azteca America and Ion.

Here are the Top 20 programs for the week.
