I'll focus only on a few shows here, but post all the shows once we see the fast national data with viewer numbers and age demographics.
It was a lot like last Tuesday, in general. last Tuesdayhad a 10.8/17 (household ratings/share) and wound up setting series records for viewing. Last night it had 10.6/16. The was down a smidge too, from 10.2/15 to a 9.9/15, and Without a Trace dipped from a an 8.4/13 to a 8.3/12.
House had the same 7.3/11 both this week and last, andwas off one tick dropping from last week's 5.6/9 to a 5.5/8.
Remember these numbers are so preliminary that it's easily possible that a show appearing down a tenth or two week over week actually winds up with a higher householdthan the prior week in the final analysis.
Meanwhile over at the CW, 90210 and Privileged were both down very slightly. 90210 drew a 2.1/3 last week and a 2.0/3, last night. Privileged dropped from a 1.4/2 to a 1.3/2. Apparently that did worse than a repeat of Reaper a year ago. That's just sad. CW plans to air Privileged afteron Mondays the first couple of Mondays in December.
Law & Order:picked up some steam, rising from last week's 6.5/11 to a 7.2/12.
In the meanwhile you can check out the full early metered market report on Marc Berman's site.
Metered Market Overnight Ratings: This is normally the first available ratings information, and is based on the electronic measurement service that Nielsen provides in 56 of the nation's largest markets. In each market a sample of homes is selected to represent that individual market. Often, networks or syndicators provide metered market information as an early indicator of a program's performance. In aggregate, the 56 metered markets represent 79,890,610 homes, or 70% of all U.S. TV households. Preliminary metered market data are available as early as 8:00AM (ET). Final metered market information, reflecting line-up changes, pre-emptions and runovers, are normally available by 3:30PM
