    Well…even with AI falling in the ratings over the last few years – they are still near the top of the top 25 shows in demo and over-all

  • Tommy

    Wheres Body of Proof?

  • Judy912

    Fantastic numbers for ‘Castle’! Would love to see the trend continue for the remainder of the season. WAY TO GO CASTLE!!

  • NBC Fan

    Modern Family!!!

    There is something very wrong with this. The number one tv show of the week by far, was the bible. In one night it beat Idols viewers for the entire week.

    “There is something very wrong with this. “

    As noted in the headline which reads “Broadcast Top 25″, this is the broadcast show list.

    The cable show list is here: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/2013/03/05/cable-top-25-the-bible-tops-cable-viewership-for-the-week-ending-march-3-2013/171779/

    Criminal Minds seems to get stronger every season which is sort of strange. I believe the show began the same year as CSI, right? I’m thrilled for Two Broke Girls and it besting The Big Bang Theory.

    Cbs is the only real full-service network left. Now Les wants to upgrade to cable quality which will only make them stronger.

    Poor NBC!
