Broadcast TV Ratings for Monday, January 14, 2008

NBC and CBS held off episode two of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and the return of Prison Break as both networks were a competitive first and second among households and viewers.

Fox though managed a second place finish among adults 18-49 (NBC was first).

In its time series debut, The Sarah Connor Chronicles declined by 45% among viewers and 44% among adults 18-49 from the night prior.  That’s certainly a negative, but its overall performance (over 10 million viewers and 3rd place for the night among adults 18-49)  was still solid.

NBC won the night thanks to the continued strong performance of American Gladiators and the nights most-watched program in all three categories (Deal or No Deal).

ABC saw its new series Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann perform well in its second week out, with minimal loss from the week prior, but the network was hurt by poor performances from Notes from the Underbelly and October Road.

NBC finished in first place for the evening with a 7.1/11 household rating/share, 11.73 million viewers and a 4.3/11 rating/share among adults 18-49.

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 “Deal or No Deal” will be reported in next weeks report for Monday, January 21, 2008.

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