Ratings Ncis At Top

A rerun of CBS's NCIS placed first in the ratings among total adults last week, edging out the usual weekly winner during the summer, NBC's America's Got Talent. The Tuesday edition of the talent contest came in second, while Wednesday's came in third. Among the evening newscasts, the race between the two leaders remained close, with NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams retaining the lead with 7.7 million viewers and ABC World News with Diane Sawyer staying close behind with 7.3 million. As usual, CBS Evening News with Scott Peley placed a distant third with 5.3 million viewers. For the week once again dominated with an average 4.1 rating and a 7 share. The other three networks virtually tied for second place, with ABC slightly ahead with an average 2.9 rating and a 5 share and 4.7 million viewers. NBC also recorded a 2.9/5 with 4.6 million viewers, just ahead of Fox with a 2.8/5 and 4.7 million viewers. Fox, however, remained the clear winner among the key demographic group of 18-49-year-olds.
