Apparently when it comes to television viewing there is American Idol, NFL Football and everything else. Neither was on last night, but we'll still report the numbers anyway. CBS won the most viewers for the night, but FOX won the 18-49 demo. FOX is perhaps the only network with anything to crow about as the lineup of Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? and Don't Forget the Lyrics is vastly outperforming last year's line up of ‘Til Death, The War at Home and The OC.
But, things being as they are the other networks, save for ABC and The CW will find something to crow about anyway. CBS can relish the dominance of CSI vs. Grey's Anatomy when it comes to repeat episodes. Because in reruns, CSI got almost twice as many viewers. In fact, more people watched the rerun of CSI at 9pm than a new episode of Without a Trace at 10pm.
NBC (and probably the Donald) will crow because, well, Celebrity Apprentice and ER (yes, ER!) won the 18-49 demo between 9pm-11pm.
