CBS & Fox Share TV Ratings Leads After 3 Weeks

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

We’re three weeks into the broadcast primetime season (through October 11, 2009) and CBS can claim the current lead in the important primetime adults 18-49 ratings as well as adults 25-54 and average viewership. Fox’s youth targeting this fall continues to pay off as they’re leading in the adults 18-34 ratings.

You can see past week’s broadcast network primetime season to date average TV ratings results here.


Each rating point is a percentage of the US TV population in that demographic group and equals: 2.90 million viewers, 1.32 million adults 18-49, 0.68 million adults 18-34 and 1.24 million adults 25-54.

Sadly, we will no longer be having a Tiny Network Showdown! since MyNetworkTV ratings averages are no longer being reported by Nielsen, since they are no longer classed as a network but are now a “programming service”.

Note that the chart includes RATINGS not VIEWERSHIP as was typical in our weekly network ratings posts prior to July, 2009.
