Scoreboard for Sun. Feb. 10, 2008 CBS ABC FOX NBC CW
Total Viewers (million) 16.92 12.43 7.41 5.90 .95
Rating/Share: Adults 18-49 5.8/14 4.3/10 3.2/8 2.1/5 0.3/1

CBS won the night in both overall viewers and the 18-49 demographic with 60 Minutes and three hours worth of the 50th Annual Grammy Awards. The Grammys were down from last year, when a little over 20 million tuned in, but it still averaged 18.23 million in the overnight numbers.

ABC came in second place mostly due to extreme performance by a two hour Extreme Makeover: Home Edition which averaged 15.76 million viewers while going head-to-head with the Grammy Awards. I've never ever seen this show, but the numbers are most impressive.

FOX had an hour of the Pro Bowl in primetime and then reruns of The Simpsons and the Family Guy with an American Dad sandwiched in between. Needless to say, the numbers were not as good for FOX as they were last Sunday, and FOX finished third for the night.

NBC ran a couple of hours of American Gladiator reruns and they performed abysmally, but a special at 10pm, 100 Most Outrageous Moments of All Time performed better for the peacock, but NBC still came in fourth for the night.

    I wish that CBS would have let us know that they were going to run the 'Old Fog(erties)ies' out on stage towards more-or-less the end of The Grammys… I'd a paid more attention. I was replaying/surfing during most of the 'Show' and switched back over half-way through Jerry Lee Lewis. At my advanced age, I didn't think quickly enough to hit the record button (thinking it was too late) only to see 'Fog's', 'L'il Richard' etal reminding us (me) of why we (I) used to watch these awards in the first place. Does anyone have a copy of the last hour? Also, Herbie Hancock winning (again, after all of these years) gave me goose bumps. Sorry to gush… please disregard the preceding.
