Survivor stays strong in the Nielsen Ratings, and Fox benefits from Game 5 of the ALCS in 2 ways, one the ratings, the other there will be a game 6. So far, no series in the playoffs has had the most possible games and there's nothing better in sports than a playoff game 7. It's not looking good at all for one of my favorite shows, 30 Rock.
Ugly Betty has lost about 30% of her viewers in the last year. And as has been the theme, CBS best show of the night (CSI) gets 3m more viewers than ABC's best show (Grey's Anatomy) but ABC still wins the 18-49 demo. The shows:
