Sunday Night Football was the most-watched program among the advertising-centric adults 18-49 demographic for the week ending October 4, 2009.  NCIS was the most-watched program overall (and NCIS: Los Angeles was the week's third most-watched program).

Among scripted shows, Grey's Anatomy edged out House to take the adults 18-49 crown, with  House, The Big Bang Theory and Family Guy the next three most-watched with the the "youthful" 18-49 group.

Aside from Sunday Night Football and its pregame, NBC placed only one other show in either list. The Office, at #18 with adults 18-49.

On to the lists!

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