Ratings Are Up For Fox and CBS

nbc.jpgIf television ratings were like the Miss America pageant, I suppose CBS and Fox would be fighting over the tiara. While ratings are usually the definitive source for whether a network is popular or not, there are so many categories that it's hard to figure out who's the clear winner. Entertainment Weekly reports CBS clearly won the "adults 25-54" category for the fourth straight year, while also claiming the "total viewers" category for the fifth straight year. It's quite an accomplishment, considering most of the network's newest shows got the boot, namely Jericho, The Class, Smith and 3 Lbs. Of course, the network is home to some favorites, like CSI and Without a Trace, so it's not really a surprise.

Fox, on the other hand, won the category that makes both television networks and advertisers squeal with joy, "adults 18-49." They love this group because it includes young people with disposable income. And the show that helped make Fox tops in this category for the third year in a row- American Idol.

In dead last, for the third consecutive year, is NBC. EW said the network's 18-49 numbers were down once again as well.

Of course, there are other ratings battles, such as weekly totals per network. The winner for that battle this week, according to, is ABC, boosted by the season finales of Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy. --Chris Sardelli
