TV Ratings: NFL and Grey’s, TBBT win week with adults 18-49; NCIS, DWTS and NCIS: Los Angeles lead with total viewers
Update: earlier (for roughly an hour) I had the 18-49 data table sorted incorrectly. It has been fixed and I apologize for any inconvenience.
NFL Sunday Night Football, post game NFL coverage on FOX and Grey’s Anatomy was the top scripted show with adults 18-49, followed by The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men and NCIS. House was down from its normal heights due to MLB playoff action pushing back its start time on Monday October 19.
As ever, NCIS led the pack with overall viewing followed by Dancing With the Stars, followed by still more NCIS with spinoff NCIS: Los Angeles as last week’s third most-watched show.
FOX aired baseball on Sunday night so there was no animation domination this week, but its replacement, game 6 of the ALCS was fifth with adults 18-49.
As has been the case all season with these lists, outside of Sunday Night Football, all NBC has had going for it is The Office and The Biggest Loser.
On to the lists!
