ABC dominates the top 5 spots with the finale and results show for Dancing with the Stars (the two finale episodes pulled its best ratings of the season), Christmas specials Shrek the Halls and the classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Desperate Housewives (which also had its highest ratings of the season).  CBS takes four out of the bottom five Top 10 spots, with FOX's House and football overrun its only representatives in the entire top 20.  If not for Sunday Night Football, and Law And Order: SVU, NBC would've been completely shut out of the top 20.

    NCIS is getting awesome rating and yet nobody in the press wants to talk about it.

    Is it because they don't hype themselves, content to produce a well-liked show?

    Rena, I'm guessing it's because of its 18-49 performance. It's the 7th highest rated show on a season-to-date basis, but it's #30 in 18-49 viewers, where it trails even Bionic Woman.

    CBS has this issue with several shows, but the gap between overall rating and the demo is most pronounced with NCIS.

    Criminal Minds is #11 overall and #23 18-49 wise. CSI: NY #13 overall, but 25th in the demo. Without a Trace is #10 overall, but #22 in the demo.
