CBS gobbled up turkey week ratings

0

CBS scored an across-the-board ratings win in Thanksgiving Week. NBC, not surprisingly, had the #1 show in both Households and 18-49, “Sunday Night Football,” but CBS had lots more highly-rated shows, mostly of the scripted variety. ABC was second, also across-the-board, led by the season’s final two shows of “Dancing with the Stars.”


In HH CBS had an average 7.1 rating and 11 share, with ABC at 6.1/10, NBC 4.3/7, Fox 3.7/6, Univision 2.0/3, CW 1.0/2, Ion and Telemundo 0.7/1, TeleFutura 0.3/0 and Azteca America and EstrellaTV 0.1/0.

In 18-49 CBS was at 2.9/8, ABC 2.7/7, Fox 2.3/6, NBC 2.2/6, Univision 1.6/4, CW 0.6/2, Telemundo 0.5/1, Ion 0.3/1, TeleFutura 0.2/1 and EstrellaTV and Azteca America 0.1/0.

Here are the week’s top 20 shows:
