CBS Takes the Night in Overall Viewers and the 18-49 Demo - though just a smidge ahead of ABC in the 18-49 Battle

The following results are based on the fast affiliate ratings (Live Plus Same Day data):

Overnight Scoreboard Thu Oct 4 cbs.gif abc.gif nbc.gif fox.gif cw.gif
Total Viewers (million) 16.47 12.19 8.39 7.15 3.76
Rating/Share: Adults 18-49 4.9/13 4.8/13 3.8/10 2.1/5 1.5/4

I look forward to the ABC press release about how it again destroyed CBS in the 18-34 demo but Thursday is still TV Night in America with 47.43 million tuned into the broadcast nets between 9p-10p.

Update 2:05pm PDT - here's a blurb from the ABC press release: For the second week in a row, ABC dominated Thursday among Adults 18-34 (4.6/13) and also ranked No. 1 across all key women demographics: W18-34 (6.7/19), W18-49 (6.8/17) and W25-54 (7.4/17-tie).

Thursday nights are the #1 reason for having a DVR - many of my favorites (Grey's, 30 Rock, and The Office...and OK, Supernatural) and while I was rooting for the Cubs over on TBS. So sad. But, glad about the DVR. Most surprising to me perhaps is just how well Survivor continues to hold up

    the press release stuff is funny. It seems like older people like drama vs comedy. i actually forgot to watch Big Shots and what do you know, it's online. That's pretty amazing and it looks good.

    apart from Grey's, CSI & Survivor, Thursday night shows are pretty low raters….Ugly Betty got just 9.78 million this week…that must be worruing for ABC…if it dosnt life it's game by midseadon, this could be the shows last season

    love 30 Rock….NBC's best show
