Broadcast TV Ratings for Thursday, February 8, 2007

CBS and ABC share the win for the evening, with CBS taking households and viewers and ABC the key A18-49 demo. ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy was the nights most watched and highest rated program.

CBS was first for the evening with an 11.0/17 household rating, 17.84 million total viewers, but was second second among adults 18-49 with a 5.6/14 rating.

  • Last Week:
    • 10.2/16 HH rating [#t1]
    • 15.84M viewers [#2]
    • 4.7/12 A18-49 rating [#2]
  • 8:00 p.m.: Survivor: Fiji (9.9/15 HH rating, 16.68M viewers, 5.8/15 A18-49 rating) returned with a new season, and took first place for the hour among all main categories.
    • What follows below are three comparison’s: The first will be a comparison with Season 12′s premiere (Panama: Exile Island), which aired in the same timeframe as this season will. The second will compare season 13′s premiere (Cook Islands) and the third will look at the rating in terms of where last season left off.
    • Season Premiere Numbers (Season 12 – Panama: Exile Island — 2/2/2006):
      • Households – 10.7/16 to 9.9/15
      • Viewers – 19.19M to 16.68M
      • Adults 18-49 – 7.0/18 to 5.8/15
    • Season Premiere Numbers (Season 13 – Cook Islands — 9/14/2006):
      • Households – 10.1/17 to 9.9/15
      • Viewers – 18.00M to 16.68M
      • Adults 18-49 – 6.5/19 to 5.8/15
    • Episode-to-episode numbers (Sunday, 12/17/2006)
      • Households – 9.3/14 to 9.9/15
      • Viewers – 16.42M to 16.68M
      • Adults 18-49 – 5.7/14 to 5.8/15
  • So basically, the show is down from where it left off a year ago during the season 12 opener, but is fairly on par with its performance during the season opener and season finale this past September and December, respectively.
  • 9:00 p.m.: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (13.7/20 HH rating, 22.28M viewers, 6.8/16 A18-49 rating) was able to climb up nearly a million viewers. This episode saw the return of William L. Petersen, so that may have had something to do with it. But the series is no longer the dominant force it was once, thanks in large part to the incredible performance of Grey’s Anatomy airing opposite it.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 13.4/19 to 13.7/20
      • Viewers – 21.29M to 22.28M
      • Adults 18-49 – 6.8/16 to 6.8/16
  • 10:00 p.m.: Shark (9.4/16 HH rating, 14.56M viewers, 4.1/11 A18-49 rating) closed the evening for CBS in first place among households and viewers for the hour, and tied for second among adults 18-49.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 9.3/15 to 9.4/16
      • Viewers – 14.08M to 14.56M
      • Adults 18-49 – 3.9/10 to 4.1/11

ABC was second for the evening with a 10.5/16 household rating, 16.72 million total viewers and a 6.5/16 rating among adults 18-49.

    • 10.2/16 HH rating [#t1]

  • 8:00 p.m.: Ugly Betty (9.1/14 HH rating, 14.30M viewers, 4.7/12 A18-49 rating) held its own pretty well against the returning Survivor, holding onto second place for the hour among all main categories.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 9.3/14 to 9.1/14
      • Viewers – 13.98M to 14.30M

  • 9:00 p.m.: Grey’s Anatomy (15.2/22 HH rating, 24.95M viewers, 10.7/25 A18-49 rating), in the first of a three-episode story, continues to perform extremely well for the network. It added another 1.03M viewers and 5% more adults 18-49 from the week prior. (Finals show the series surpassed 25M viewers, hitting 25.20M and a 10.9/25 rating among adults 18-49.)
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 14.9/22 to 15.2/22
      • Viewers – 23.92M to 24.95M
      • Adults 18-49 – 10.2/23 to 10.7/25
  • 10:00 p.m.: Men In Trees (7.1/12 HH rating, 10.90M viewers, 4.1/11 A18-49 rating) is holding steady and was able to tie for second place among adults 18-49 for the hour, but the series is still struggling to retain most of its lead-ins audience.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 7.3/12 to 7.1/12
      • Viewers – 10.64M to 10.90M
      • Adults 18-49 – 3.9/10 to 4.1/11
