Of Course, Fox Tops Week’s 18-49 Ratings; But Its Margin Shrinks
The penultimate full week of the 2009-10 broadcast season again had Fox winning the adult 18-49 ratings, but their margin of victory over second place CBS (0.2 ratings points) was the narrowest it has been in quite some time. NBC continued unable to crack the 2.0 adults 18-49 rating barrier and was closer to 5th place Univision than 3rd place ABC.
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.
