Broadcast TV Ratings for Tuesday, November 6, 2007

Led by the evening’s most watched series among adults 18-49 (House), Fox won the night among the demo and among both households and viewers.

However, it was a very competitive evening in overall viewership, with both CBS and ABC very close behind. CBS actually had the night’s most watched program in NCIS, which just narrowly finished ahead of House in total audience. The episode of NCIS was its most-watched episode ever for the fifth year series.

NBC also had some good news last night, as the network managed to leap frog both CBS and ABC to take second place on the evening among adults 18-49, thanks to a two-hour edition of The Biggest Loser and the always reliable Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.

Fox finished in first place for the evening with an 8.3/12 household rating/share, 13.85 million viewers and a 5.6/14 rating/share among adults 18-49.

Note: Network average numbers from the week prior are based on fast national data. Comparison’s from the week prior (or episode-to-episode, etc.) on specific shows are based on final national data. Ratings for the current day are based on fast nationals. (Expect all three scenarios to be the case at all times, unless otherwise noted). The final rating for first-run episodes that aired this evening will be reported the following week. So for example, the final rating for tonights episode of “Dancing With the Stars” will be reported in next weeks report for Tuesday, November 13, 2007.

Also keep in mind that because these are fast national ratings, numbers may increase or decrease when the final nationals are released.
