Ncis Is Week's Most-watched Show

CBS's NCIS edged out NBC's Sunday Night Football as the most-watched television show last week. The long-running drama drew 17.78 million viewers, while the football telecast landed 17.30 million (a statistically insignificant difference). The NCIS companion show, NCIS: Los Angeles placed third. Especially remarkable is that only one game of the World Series made the top ten -- the fourth and deciding game. Game 2 placed 12th on the Nielsen list, Game 1, 14th, and Game 3 at a mouth-dropping 28th place. It was the lowest-rated World Series ever. Among the evening newscasts, the NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams again led the field with 8.03 million viewers, following by ABC World News with Diane Sawyer with 7.59 million. The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley continued to improve with 6.37 million viewers. For the week overall, CBS led among total viewers with a 6.5/10. Fox followed closely with a 6.4/10. ABC placed third with a 4.9/8, while NBC trailed with a 4.4/7.

The top ten shows of the week according to Nielsen Research:
1. NCIS, CBS, 11.2/17; 2. Sunday Night Football: New Orleans at Denver, NBC, 10.7/16; 3. NCIS: Los Angeles, CBS, 10.4/16; 4. The OT, Fox, 10.1/16; 5. The Big Bang Theory, CBS, 9.5/15; 6.
