CSI

The EYE network takes both total viewers and 18-49 categories on the strength of Survivor and CSI.

-Total Viewers:
CBS: 18.58 million, ABC: 14.36, NBC: 9.37, Fox: 6.37, CW: 3.80

-Adults 18-49:
CBS: 5.8 rating/15 share, ABC: 5.7/15, NBC: 4.3/11, Fox: 1.9/ 5, CW: 1.4/ 4

Thursdays from 9p-10p surely was the most watched hour of broadcast television with CSI raking in 24.9m and Grey's Anatomy adding another 20.5m. I'll be interested to see the DVR totals for this night once we finally have them.

CSI was up over last year's premiere where it drew 22.6m viewers, but Grey's Anatomy was down 4.9m viewers compared to last year's 25.4 million viewers. The Preston Burke effect?

"Losers" for the night include ABC's Big Shots with 12.98m viewers, and ER with a paltry 9.9m viewers off from the 15.6m viewers it drew in the 2006 opener. Mid season replacement for ER?

Interestingly with less viewers than ER, The Office was considered a winner by Nielsen mavens with 9.7m viewers during the 9p-10p hour. But I like The Office much better too, and it was up against CSI and Grey's, tough competition.

Another lousy night for Fox, both in overall viewers and 18-49.

Full night’s results available via Marc Berman/Mediaweek. The charts:

    The line-up for Fox on Thursday nights is so lame, it should switch to Friday nights, cuz it would probably get the same ratings, and on Thursdays Fox could develope some really great dramas to compete; or, like ABC, rip-off a Hispanic novela, and have amazing success with a multi-cultural comedy series. However, they would probably copy NBC, and produce another American version of an English comedy show.

    Haha, Eva — I can't tell whether you like Ugly Betty and The Office, but I can tell where you stand on Fox's Thursday night line-up!

    I probably shouldn't admit this, but I've never seen Ugly Betty. I have seen The Office and though I'm a little older than it's main audience, I like it. I plan to binge on all of the first 3 seasons soon and remake myeself as an ultimate The Office fan.
