Week 2: Bragging rights for ABC, CBS and NBC

0

NBC tied with ABC for the ratings lead in the key 18-49 demo in week two of the new TV season, while CBS won the Households crown. ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” moved to #1 in the HH ratings, but CBS noted that #2 “CSI” still had more viewers. So, there was plenty of “we’re #1” to go around. In 18-49, ABC and NBC were followed by CBS, Fox, Univision, CW, Telemundo, a tie by TeleFutura and MyNetworkTV, and a final tie by Ion and Azteca America.


In HH, CBS had a 7.3 rating and 12 share, with ABC at 7.1/12, NBC 5.8/10, Fox 4.3/7, CW 1.9/3, Univision 1.7/3, Telemundo and MyNetworkTV 0.5/1, Ion and TeleFutura 0.3/1, and Azteca America 0.1/0.

Here are the top 20 shows.
