Fast National ratings for Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2010
Tuesday's ratings start with a caveat: Because of pre-emptions and local breaks for election coverage, the numbers are likely to change a little more than normal when final nationals are calculated. But in the fast nationals at least, viewers cast their Nielsen ballots for "Dancing With the Stars" and ABC.
ABC averaged 12.1 million viewers and a 7.8 rating/12 share in primetime, easily beating the 9.5 million and 6.1/10 for second-place CBS. NBC (6.5 million, 4.1/7) came in third for the night. FOX (4 million, 2.6/4) came in fourth, and The CW drew 1.95 million people and a 1.3/2.
Midterm elections coverage and reruns of regular programming kept the adults 18-49 numbers low, with ABC leading the pack with just a 2.4 rating. NBC, 2.1, took second, followed closely by CBS at 2.0. FOX scored a 1.4 in the demo and The CW a 0.9.
