With nearly a full line up of new episodes and 3 hours of Survivor: Samoa including the finale, CBS rode high for the week, topping the adults 18-49 and 25-54 demo groups as well as average viewership. Fox continued to win the adults 18-34 demo group, as they have for most of the season.

ABC with its pitifully performing repeats and some Christmas specials was humbled with just a 1.38 rating average in the 18-49 demo, barely squeeking past Univision for adults 18-49.

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

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.
