Last week wasn't much different than the week before it, Sunday Night Football featuring the Chicago Bears vs. Atlanta Falcons was the most-watched program among the advertising-centric adults 18-49 demographic for the week ending October 18, 2009.  NCIS was the most-watched program overall averaging over 21 million viewers.

Among scripted shows, this week  House edged out Grey's Anatomy with adults 18-49, 6.79 million vs. 6.59 million with both shows down a bit from the week before.

Aside from Sunday Night Football and its pregame, NBC again placed only two other shows on either list: The Office and The Biggest Loser - both made the 18-49 list.

Keep your eye on CBS' The Big Bang Theory its growth this season in the 9:30 slot (which began over the summer during reruns) continues to be impressive. TBBT was the #4 show with adults 18-49 last week.

On to the lists!

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