CBS took the night in both overall viewers and the 18-49 year old demographic with new episodes of Ghost Whisperer and Numb3rs with the primetime version of The Price is Right making its 9pm debut. In a very minor victory for scripted programming, both dramas did over nine million viewers and marginally beat TPIR in the 18-49 demo. TPIR got 8.55 which was still more than any other show not airing on CBS.
The soon to be off the airwaves Amne$ia demonstrated why NBC cancelled it, but ABC, not NBC had the rougher night, averaging less than a half million more viewers than the CW! The CW actually came in third in the 18-49 demo, of course it did show with a show it decided to let get away - Friday Night Smackdown!. I await anxiously (ok, that's a stretch) to see how the CW does on Friday night's next year, or whether Nielsen even decides to report over night numbers for that Network anymore. We'll see.
Cantebury's Law looks poised for the dead pool. While it improved over a repeat of Bones, it's 18-49 rating was below 1.5, and FOX landed last in the demo for the night.
