Fox and CBS claim Week 8

0

Week 8 of the 2010-2011 television season produced a split decision. Fox won 18-49 for the second time this season, on the strength of its NFL Sunday football run-over into primetime and a big draw for young viewers in “Glee.” But CBS won the Household ratings competition for the 7th time in eight weeks. NBC, of course, had the #1 show, “NBC Sunday Night Football.”


In HH CBS was at an average 6.6 rating and 11 share, with ABC 6.3/11, NBC 4.7/8, Fox 4.3/7, Univision 2.0/3, CW 1.4/2, Ion 0.8/1, Telemundo 0.5/1, TeleFutura 0.4/1, EstrellaTV 0.2/0 and Azteca America 0.1/0.

For 18-49 Fox was at 2.8/8, ABC 2.6/8, CBS 2.5/7, NBC 2.4/7, Univision 1.6/5, CW 1.0/3, TeleFutura and Telemundo 0.4/1, Ion 0.3/1 and EstrellaTV and Azteca America 0.1/0.

Here are the week’s top 20 shows:
