Fast National ratings for Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2010
A rerun-heavy night on the broadcast networks Wednesday didn't really change the usual order of things -- which meant that CBS led the night. NBC's "Law & Order" duo, however, did get a bit of a bump airing original episodes against lighter competition.
Thanks mostly to a new "Survivor: Nicaragua," CBS led the night with 8.8 million viewers and a 5.5 rating/9 share in households. NBC (7.1 million, 5.2/8) came in second in primetime, beating out FOX (5.8 million, 3.6/6). ABC's 5.1 million viewers and 3.4/5 were good for fourth. The CW (2.7 million, 1.8/3) got season highs from the "America's Next Top Model" finale but still finished fifth.
CBS also won the adults 18-49 demographic with a 2.5 rating. FOX scored a 2.1 in the demo to take second, edging NBC's 2.0. ABC averaged 1.5 and The CW 1.2.
