Benefitting from a Sunday NFL overrun into primetime, Fox marked its second week of the season on top the weekly broadcast primetime adults 18-49 ratings averages, finishing with a 2.8 adults 18-49 ratings average for the week. Who needs the World Series when you can get the late afternoon Sunday football game to run long?
ABC was in second place with a 2.6 rating average. CBS finished third with a 2.5 rating. NBC was fourth with a 2.4 rating.
CBS topped the press release friendly, but advertiser ignored, average viewership for the week.
The network's average viewership is charted in millions of viewers, just like we report all other average viewership information on the site, and adults 18-49 is charted as ratings points. Note the units (million viewers on the left, rating on the right) below the bars.
Each adults 18-49 rating point is a percentage of the adults 18-49 US TV population and equals 1.315 million adults 18-49.
