CBS and NBC win the week

0

As the Summer winds down and the new Fall season beckons, “America’s Got Talent” carried NBC to victory last week, barely edging Fox in the 18-49 demo, even though Fox’s “Hell’s Kitchen” was the #1 show for the demo. CBS, with “Big Brother” and lots of scripted reruns, was still the most-watched network overall.


In Households CBS scored an average 4.0 rating and 7 share. ABC and NBC tied at 3.5/6, with Fox at 2.8/5, Univision 1.7/3, Ion 0.8/1, CW 0.7/1, Telemundo 0.5/1, TeleFutura 0.3/1 and Azteca America and EstrellaTV 0.1/0.

In 18-49 NBC was at 1.8/6, just ahead of Fox at 1.7/6, then ABC 1.6/5, CBS and Univision 1.4/5, Telemundo and CW 0.4/1, Ion and TeleFutura 0.3/1 and EstrellaTV and Azteca America 0.1/0.
