Broadcast TV Ratings for Monday, December 3, 2007

With Dancing With the Stars no longer on the lineup, CBS’s evening of repeats led the night, giving the network a win among households and viewers.

NBC though took first place for the evening among adults 18-49, courtesy the season finale of Heroes, which did well overall, but couldn’t capitalize on the reduced competition and surprisingly decreased week-to-week in each category. Life saw a slight increase with its special airing out of Heroes. Earlier in the evening, Chuck held steady from the week prior.

Meanwhile on ABC, the network suffered significantly with the loss of Dancing With the Stars. Every series was down from the week prior, with the once promising Samantha Who? posting series low numbers, proving that unfortunately its prior successes had more to do with its strong Dancing With the Stars lead-in. Notes from the Underbelly fell flat in week two of the new season, while October Road shows no signs of being any sort of hit for the network.

CBS finished in first place for the evening with a 6.2/9 household rating/share and 9.39 million viewers, but fell slightly behind in second place among adults 18-49 with a 3.0/7 rating/share.

GO TO WEEKLY RATINGS PAGE

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 “Heroes” will be reported in next weeks report for Monday, December 10, 2007.

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