Cbs Dominates Weak Week For Networks

CBS's 60 Minutes was watched by nearly the same number of people who tuned in to NBC's Sunday-night football game between the Denver Broncos and the San Diego Chargers. The football game, the highest-rated telecast of the week, drew 14.85 million viewers, edging out the news magazine, which pulled in 14.11 million, a difference of just 3.8 percent. Meanwhile, CBS continued to dominate during a week that saw audiences of all network shows dwindle. It averaged a 4.8 rating and a 9 share. NBC followed in second place with a 3.9/7; Fox placed third with a 3.3/6; while ABC averaged a 2.5/9.
