As usual, Fox crushed the broadcast primetime competition last week in the adults 18-49 ratings by a wide margin. But with CBS in a mixture of repeats and new episodes, and without Undercover Boss or NCAA basketball, Fox had the highest average viewership for the week as well.

Of course NBC did pitifully, but ABC beat them by just 0.1 adults 18-49 ratings points on the week as their 2.0 rating was still nothing to brag about. It’s looking less and less likely that ABC can catch NBC for third place in any ratings category before the end of the season (just 4 weeks away).

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.
