Scoreboard for Thursday Nov 15 CBS ABC NBC FOX CW
Total Viewers (million) 16.85 12.98 8.06 7.81 3.69
rating/Share: Adults 18-49 5.1/13 5.0/12 3.7/9 2.5/6 1.5/4

Though Grey's Anatomy did win the 18-49 demo in the 9p-10p hour, CSI had more viewers and a healthy performance in the demo.  I already believed that since the advent of the ubiquitous remote control, "lead-in" was no longer a meaningful indicator and I got more fodder for that thinking last night.  A special Thursday version of Women's Murder Club on ABC performed worse than it did last Friday in its normal time slot where Men in Trees is its lead-in.  On to the show data:

    30 Rock is the best comedy on TV. No other TV show makes me laugh as often and as hard. Most movie comedies don't make laugh as much in 90 minutes than 30 Rock does in 22 minutes. I'm not into “insider-y” shows or movies, but 30 Rock isn't like that. It's a show about a flawed group of co-workers whose office happens to be the set of a television show. It's no more “insider-y” than the Mary Tyler Moore Show was with the news, or The Office is with paper manufacturers. You don't have to work for a paper manufacturer to get The Office, and you don't need to be a television insider to get 30 Rock.
