The 2009 World Series dominated the action with both overall viewing and adults 18-49 viewing.  With the game or pregame coverage taking root at the top of both charts.  FOX's The OT that followed the Vikings-Packers game on Sunday night was third with adults 18-49 and seventh overall.

Monday-Wednesday of last week CBS aired repeats.  Last Monday's repeat The Big Bang Theory trailed only new episodes of Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives and The Office for the week among scripted shows.  When it comes to reruns, CBS is the envy of the broadcast networks.   Even the older-skewing NCIS repeat was 22nd with adults 18-49.  It was sixth among total viewers.

On to the lists!

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