Looks like Chuck is on par with pre-Olympic figures. I would have liked to have seen an uptick to 7M+, but at least it didn't go down.

Whew!! Chuck and 24 at least have stayed consistent. 24 is doing alright especially without a new episode of House as a lead-in.

Unfortunately, next week Life Unexpected moves to 8PM, competing (on my DVR) with Chuck and House. Darn it!

The ratings have been down for CSI Miami the last 2 seasons. It used to be a 17M-20M viewer show. I think it's finally showing it's age.

FOX's 8.6 rating in the 18-49 demographic put the network way ahead of everyone else. CBS was the best of the rest at 3.3, followed by NBC at 3.1 and ABC at 2.5. The CW could manage only a 0.3.

You would think though that the highest viewed part of the telecast is the last 15 minutes - best actor, actress & movie?

This is when it sucks to be on the East Coast, watching something live from the West Coast.

Nice numbers for the Oscars. Looks like the expansion to 10 Best Pic nominees worked.

Well, it also helped that almost everyone has seen Avatar. I believe that the highest rated Oscar telecast in the last 15 years was the year Titanic won it all and everyone saw that in the theaters also.

Re: Primetime TV Ratings - Part IV (2009-2010 Season)

Not sure how much it costs to produce, but it looks like CSI: Miami could be on its way out within a couple of years. I'm not sure if I've seen a new episode get as low as 11.9 million viewers. Only good news is, the competition is weak as well...

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, March 10, 2010

The return of "America's Next Top Model" did pretty well for The CW Wednesday, but that didn't carry over to the network's new reality show "High Society."

"American Idol" was off some from its season average but still carried FOX to the night's top spot; the network averaged 14.15 million viewers and an 8.3 rating/13 share in primetime. CBS (10.5 million, 6.6/11) came in second, followed by NBC (6.8 million, 4.5/8). ABC finished fourth with 5.65 million viewers and a 3.6/5, while The CW (3.2 million, 2.1/3) trailed.

FOX also rolled to a win among adults 18-49 with a 4.9 rating. CBS, 2.7, grabbed second in the demographic. ABC's 2.2 was good enough for third, beating out NBC's 1.8. The CW earned a 1.3.

Wednesday hour by hour:

8 p.m.

FOX: "Human Target" (7.8 million viewers, 4.8/8 households)
CBS: "The New Adventures of Old Christine" (7.9 million, 4.9/8)/"Gary Unmarried" (6.8 million, 4.2/7)
