2007/2008 TV Season Ratings Report – Week of 2/25 – 3/2/08

Monday (2/25/08)

Overall:

#1 ABC (8.6)
#2 NBC (6.2)
#3 CBS (5.5)
#4 FOX (4.9)
#5 CW (1.1)

Adults 18-49:

#1 ABC (3.6)
#2 NBC (3.2)
#3 FOX (3.1)
#4 CBS (2.6)
#5 CW (0.7)

Monday’s Top Shows:
Deal or No Deal, NBC
Movie: Raisin in the Sun, ABC
Two and a Half Men(R), CBS
The New Adventures of Old Christine, CBS
CSI: Miami(R), CBS

My Thoughts: P. Diddy’s Raisin in the Sun performed
well for ABC. Besides that, more of the same for a still strike-effected
Monday night…

Tuesday (2/26/08)

Overall:

#1 FOX (13.9)
#2 CBS (5.3)
#3 NBC (4.3)
#4 ABC (3.7)
#5 CW (1.7)

Adults 18-49:

#1 FOX (9.4)
#2 CBS (2.6)
#3 NBC (2.3)
#4 ABC (1.8)
#5 CW (1.1)

Tuesday’s Top Shows:
American Idol, FOX
NCIS(R), CBS
Back to You, FOX
Primetime: What Would You Do?, ABC

My Thoughts: Only CBS’s ratings improved from last
Tuesday. Idol’s numbers were down, yet still dominant.
Back to You wouldn’t attract an audience in any other
time-slot. And NBC’s quarterlife made like a CW show…

Wednesday (2/27/08)

Overall:

#1 FOX (13.7)
#2 NBC (6.5)
#3 CBS (4.8)
#4 ABC (4.3)
#5 CW (1.9)

Adults 18-49:

#1 FOX (8.9)
#2 NBC (2.6)
#3 ABC (2.4)
#4 CBS (2.2)
#5 CW (1.5)

Wednesday’s Top Shows:
American Idol, FOX
Deal or No Deal, NBC
Back to You, FOX
Law & Order, NBC

My Thoughts: Idol‘s numbers were slightly down
again, while the other networks were trending up. Are we beginning
to tire of Simon, Seacrest and the gang? Meanwhile, the original
Law & Order continues to perform admirably for NBC…

Thursday (2/28/08)

Overall:

#1 FOX (11.6)
#2 CBS (7.3)
#3 ABC (5.3)
#4 NBC (4.0)

Thursday’s Top Shows:
American Idol, FOX
Survivor: Micronesia – Fans vs. Favorites, CBS
Lost, ABC
Don’t Forget the Lyrics, FOX
CSI(R), CBS
Without a Trace(R), CBS

My Thoughts: How ‘bout Don’t Forget the Lyrics
outscoring Lost?

Friday (2/29/08)

Overall:

#1 CBS (5.2)
#2 FOX (4.2)
#2 NBC (4.2)
#4 ABC (3.9)
#5 CW (2.6)

Price is Right, CBS
Ghost Whisperer(R), CBS
House(R), FOX
20/20, ABC
Dateline, NBC

My Thoughts: Just look at those miniscule 18-49 numbers…

Overall:

#1 ABC (7.3)
#2 FOX (5.9)
#3 CBS (5.3)
#4 NBC (5.2)

Sunday’s Top Shows:
60 Minutes, CBS
NASCAR 500, FOX
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, ABC
Dateline, NBC
Here Come the Newlyweds, ABC

My Thoughts: ABC gets an assist from Oprah, a smart
pairing with Home Edition. Meanwhile, another Date-
line
improves NBC’s Sunday…
