The top shows in the Household ratings from Nielsen were quite different from the top shows in the advertiser-friendly 18-49 demo for Week 30 of the television season. Once again CBS was the winner in HH, but Fox in 18-49.
As shown below, “NCIS” on CBS and “Dancing with the Stars” on ABC were the top shows in HH, followed by two nights of “American Idol” on Fox. But in 18-49 the Idol shows were #1 and #2, followed by ABC’s “Modern Family” and “The Voice” on NBC. NCIS and DWTS were back at #10 and #12, respectively.
Overall, in HH CBS averaged a 5.8 rating and 10 share, with ABC at 4.8/8, Fox 4.6/8, NBC 3.4/6, Univision 1.9/3, CW and Ion 0.7/1, Telemundo 0.6/1, TeleFutura 0.4/1 and Azteca America and EstrellaTV 0.1/0.
In 18-49 Fox scored 2.4/7, with CBS at 2.1/6, ABC 1.8/5, NBC 1.7/5, Univision 1.5/4, Telemundo 0.5/1, CW 0.4/1, Ion and TeleFutura 0.3/1 and EstrellaTV and Azteca America 0.1/0.
