Weekly cable show ratings and overnight broadcast show ratings are also available.

NFL dominated both the weekly top 25 lists (below)  for the broadcast  networks and was at the top of both the adults 18-49 list and the overall viewing list.   Aside from football,  among adults 18-49 Hell's Kitchen, the season premiere of Glee and the series finale of King of the Hill were the top shows.   The CW's strong premiere of  The Vampire Diaries didn't make the top 25 with adults 18-49, but with 2.783 million adults 18-49 viewers  it just barely missed at #26.

In overall viewing, aside from NFL football, a repeat NCIS, 60 Minutes and America's Got Talent were the top shows.  On to the lists...
