60 Minutes...even though Mark Cuban and "The Cheetah" no longer are, Dancing with the Stars wins the week. On the backs of Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, 60 Minutes jumped from being #20 the previous week with 13.05m viewers to #3 with 19.2m in this week's results. Imagine the ratings if Brady and Manning actually hosted 60 Minutes! ABC takes four out of the top 6. FOX's only top 10 performer for the week was House. Top 20 shows by viewers for the week of 10/29-11/4/07:

Nielsen seems to have chosen not to include the Sunday CBS NFL Post Game in the broadcast  ratings because it ran only 5 minutes into prime-time, but it was the #1 primetime broadcast show of the week.

    Where did Law & Order Criminal Intent fall on the Cable ratings chart for wk 10/29 – 11/04? What were the actual ratings vs broadcast for Thurs, 11/01/07?

    thanks

    Susie, from a Cable HH Ratings Law & Order: CI was #12 for the week (2.6 HH rating), but did not make our Cable Top 20 when it comes to actual viewers (3.586 million). You can compare that to the broadcast viewers for last Thursday here.

    What's the math to get to viewership numbers if you're given the rating and the HH share? I can't seem to get the same numbers as yours.

    Thanks,

    Michael there are two different “universes” — the universe of households and the universe of people over the age of 2. In the case of HH, the universe is 112,800,000 for the 2007-2008 season. A HH ratings point = 1% of that universe.

    The viewership universe is out of 286,300,000 people, but I just provide the total viewers (Nielsen provided) rather than the Viewer Ratings.

    You won't be able to make the math foot because more than one person per household can watch a show. My inclination was to just to provide viewers, but several people asked for the household data — I suppose I could provide that total # of households instead of the HH rating. Thoughts?
