NCIS Season 6

Last week wasn't much different than the week before it, Sunday Night Football was the most-watched program among the advertising-centric adults 18-49 demographic for the week ending October 11, 2009 and  NCIS was the most-watched program overall.

Among scripted shows, this week  House narrowly edged out Grey's Anatomy with adults 18-49, 7.072 million vs. 7.051 million.

Aside from Sunday Night Football and its pregame, NBC placed only two other shows on either list. The one-hour wedding episode of  The Office,  shot all the way up to number 4 with adults 18-49 (the previous week, it was 18th) and The Biggest Loser made the 18-49 list at #14.

On to the lists!

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