CBS PR got out in front of the preliminary ratings on Sunday declaring victory, but that touting was overturned after review in the Finals, as NBC averaged a 5.2 adults 18-49 rating to CBS’ 4.8. But they made their PR hay while they could!

In the unscrambled CBS ratings, the Survivor finale was down 2% from last Fall’s finale and tied a series low for a Fall finale. The reunion show afterwards drew a 3.1 adults 18-4 rating, and set a series reunion show low.

Other than the unscrambling of all CBS shows and the Ravens/Chargers game, there were no adjustments with adults 18-49 ratings for original episodes compared to Sunday’s preliminary ratings.
