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|
|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
