Garth Brooks: Live in LA led CBS to a nightly win in terms of overall viewers. The concert won the 9pm hour in terms of viewers but Garth held less sway with the "youthful" 18-49 demo, where a rerun of House was more popular. CBS trailed both NBC (which won the night) and FOX in terms of the 18-49 demo. But buck up Garth, you are still more popular than Friday Night Smackdown!, and I confess to being a little surprised to find that out!
NBC won the 8pm hour with 1 vs. 100. Friday Night Lights continues to struggle to find viewers at 9pm, but a new episode of Las Vegas was competitive in the 10pm hour against ABC's 20/20 and a rerun of Numb3rs on CBS. Numb3rs won the hour in terms of viewers, with Las Vegas taking the demo. Reruns of CBS dramas continue to garner more viewers than repeats of ABC's dramas (compare the numbers for Ghost Whisperer and Numb3rs vs. Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives). Seems like it has been a pathetic January for the Mouse network.
