Scoreboard for Thursday Jan 10, 2008 CBS ABC FOX NBC CW
Total Viewers (million) 13.54 11.41 8.39 8.01 2.19
rating/Share: Adults 18-49 3.5/9 4.2/11 2.6/7 3.3/9 0.8/2

CBS took the most viewers and ABC took the 18-49 demographic on the last night where an original Grey's Anatomy faces off with an original episode of CSI (it was the last first-run episode for each show).  As is typical, CSI narrowly won the timeslot in terms of overall viewers with Grey's Anatomy winning the 18-49 demographic decisively.  In the 8pm hour, FOX was strong with Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, which beat out ABC's Ugly Betty in total viewers, with Ugly Betty winning the hour in the 18-49 demo.  NBC's My Name is Earl was strong in the demo, but 30 Rock lost about 1.7 million viewers from Earl's lead-in.  At this point, Gorman and I may be the only ones still watching 30 Rock.

CBS easily dominated the 10pm hour with Without a Trace decisively winning the most viewers, and tying for the 18-49 demo lead with ER.  Full night's results:

    Not bad for BIG SHOTS! and that's WITHOUT PROMOTION FROM ABC. If the network promote it like crazy then more people will be aware and watch the show. The did advertise Grey's and Ugly Betty BUT NOTHING for Big Shots!

    What is striking is how the mighty have fallen. CSI used to average over 30 million viewers a couple or three years back (when it was still a great show). Similarly, Without a Trace topped off above 20 million viewers until the addition of Roselyn Sanchez to the cast tanked the show.

    The networks desperately need to re-program Saturdays and program fewer reality shows if they're interested at all in finding he next big hits.

    It's amazing to me how they take so few at bats (beside the fact they're almost unerring in backing bad shows that are DOA with the public).
