Fox edged the closely packed competition for the adults 18-49 ratings win in week 10 of the broadcast primetime ratings season. This was by far the most competitive top to bottom week for the all important adults 18-49 ratings, with just 0.23 ratings point separating #1 from #4.

CBS continued to win the adults 25-54 ratings as well as average viewership, while Fox continued its wins for adults 18-34.

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

You can see past week’s broadcast network primetime weekly 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 not being reported by Nielsen, since they are no longer classed as a network but are now a “programming service”.
