Broadcast TV Ratings for Thursday, December 6, 2007

CSI (the nights most-watched program) powers CBS to a ratings win Thursday night among households and viewers, however, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy (the nights most-watched program among adults 18-49) pushed the network to the top among adults 18-49.

Elsewhere on the night, the 300th episode of ER over on NBC went by mostly unnoticed, as the episode lost viewership from the week prior.

CBS finished in first place for the evening with a 9.4/15 household rating/share and 15.12 million viewers, but fell slightly behind in second place among adults 18-49 with a 4.4/11 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 “CSI” will be reported in next weeks report for Thursday, December 13, 2007.

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