CBS dramas, Fox football top Sun.

18 December 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Football carried the night for Fox and dramas came through for CBS on a Sunday otherwise dominated by repeats in primetime.

ABC was wall-to-wall encores, highlighted by 8 p.m.'s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, which averaged 12.7 million viewers and 4.2 rating/10 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research.

With 9 p.m.'s Desperate Housewives (12 million, 4.3/10) in repeat, a fresh installment of CBS' Cold Case (14.2 million, 3.9/9) had less competition and topped NBC's football coverage in the hour in viewers. At 10 p.m., the same was true for CBS' Without a Trace (14.1 million, 3.9/10).

Fox opened the night with a big bounce from a football overrun followed by its Bowl Championship Series Selection special. Reliable national estimates for Fox's live game coverage won't be available until Tuesday but it was enough to put Fox over the top in a big way for the night in adults 18-49.

CBS paced the race in total viewers with help from 7 p.m.'s 60 Minutes (12.5 million, 2.5/7) and 8 p.m.'s The Amazing Race (10.7 million, 3.5/8). »

Football challenges 'Housewives' on Sun.

7 November 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- The Sunday Night Football matchup between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts could give NBC a win in Sunday's primetime, even with ABC's boost from a stronger Desperate Housewives.

Desperate Housewives was the night's top show in both viewers and the adults 18-49 demographic, but it was challenged by football on both ends: A half-hour overrun of football on CBS in the early evening and a super-sized Patriots-Colts game that the Colts won 27-20.

Desperate Housewives had a strong week, with Nielsen Media Research estimating 22.5 million viewers and a 9.0 rating/20 share in the adults 18-49 demographic. That compared to last week's 21.2 million viewers and an 8.3/19 in the demo.

But coming on strong was Sunday Night Football, which averaged a non-time-zone-adjusted 20 million viewers and a 7.8/18 in the adults 18-49. Those numbers are likely to be revised with Tuesday's release of final ratings data, but it seemed to be enough to push NBC to a win for the night with 17.8 million viewers and a 6.9/17 in the demo (compared to ABC's 15.6 million viewers and 5.7/14 in the demo).

CBS got the night started with 20 million viewers for the last part of a football game, which helped boost 60 Minutes (15.7 million, 4.1/10) even though it was a half-hour later than scheduled. Amazing Race (12 million, 3.7/9) was slightly below last week in the demo and Cold Case (13.6 million, 3.7/9) ended at 10:30 p.m. Without a Trace averaged 12.3 million viewers and 3.7/10 in adults 18-49 for the hour ended at 11:30 p.m. ET.

Tassler named showman of year by ICG

1 November 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Hollywood publicists will honor CBS Entertainment president Nina Tassler with their television showman of the year award.

The award will be presented at the ICG 44th Annual Publicists Awards Luncheon, set for Feb. 7 at the Beverly Hilton.

"Nina Tassler has played a role in developing two of the most successful series in modern television history -- 'ER' and 'CSI,' " said Henri Bollinger, awards committee chairman for the ICG Publicists. "Thanks in large part to her creative and promotional instincts, CBS is America's most-watched network with a deep and diverse roster of popular and successful series."

Under Tassler, CBS also has developed other successful series including Without a Trace, Cold Case and The New Adventures of Old Christine.

Previous honorees for the television showmanship award include CBS Corp. chairman Leslie Moonves, Comcast Entertainment Group CEO Ted Harbert and producer Jerry Bruckheimer.

MTR event fetes Moonves, Bruckheimer

1 November 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Leslie Moonves quoted John F. Kennedy. Jerry Bruckheimer quoted Aristotle. Katie Couric quoted Ari Gold, and the Jersey Boys serenaded the honorees with Four Seasons hits specially adapted for the occasion, which was Monday night's Museum of Television & Radio gala saluting CBS Corp.'s Moonves and superproducer Bruckheimer.

The mood in the ballroom at the Regent Beverly Wilshire was as light and laudatory, befitting the Halloween-eve timing of the event, hosted by Couric, CBS News' new star anchor. Clips of Moonves from his mid-1970s acting career were shown more than a few times, including an episode of Cannon featuring a shirtless Moonves declaring "My name is Pasqual, the cliff diver." Among those chuckling in the high-powered crowd included Moonves' boss, Viacom and CBS Corp. chairman Sumner Redstone, News Corp.'s Peter Chernin, Warner Bros.' Barry Meyer and Peter Roth, Walt Disney Co.'s Robert Iger and Anne Sweeney, MPAA chief Dan Glickman, Capital Research's Gordon Crawford, a host of CBS stars and industry notables.

"Tonight I consider myself the most fortunate failed actor in the history of television," Moonves joked in accepting his award. Keeping with the night's theme of honoring the two men as individuals and for the successful partnership between CBS and Bruckheimer Television -- home of CBS' "CSI" trio, Without a Trace, Cold Case, Close to Home and The Amazing Race -- Moonves offered a slight revision on a famous Kennedy quote: "Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and 'CSI' has made us rich."

David Letterman contributed a taped bit, a top 10 list of "Little Known Facts about Leslie Moonves and Jerry Bruckheimer." Highlights included No. 4: "In the '80s they formed a rock group called Moonheimer Steamroller" and No. 1: They met in prison.

The Jersey Boys vocal group, from the Broadway show of the same name built around the hits of Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, got the presentation off to an upbeat start with a reprise their performance from CBS' upfront schedule presentation in May with a few lyrical twists. For Bruckheimer, the Four Seasons' high-octave hit Sherry became Jerry, with the refrain "Jerry, whatcha got on tonight?" For Moonves, the ballad My Eyes Adored You became The Eye Adores You, with the gentle entreaty, Oh Les, our agent's at the bar.

ABC's 'Housewives,' 'Makeover' dominate sports

16 October 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Football and baseball games on Sunday threw some primetime lineups off for the night, but sports-free ABC was nonetheless the dominant 18-49 demo player thanks to Desperate Housewives and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Housewives ruled as the most-watched program of the night with an average of 20 million viewers and 8.0 rating/18 share in adults 18-49 demographic at 9 p.m., according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. At 8 p.m., Extreme Makeover (14.3 million, 5.5/13) gave the ladies of Wisteria Lane a leg up with a solid lead-in. The start times of CBS' primetime lineup were thrown off by a less than half-hour overrun of CBS' drama schedule was thrown off for the night by the roughly half-hour NFL overrun that pushed back the start times of 60 Minutes, The Amazing Race, Cold Case and Without a Trace. »

ABC wins Sunday with 'Housewives,' 'Sisters'

9 October 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- ABC won Sunday night in both key measures, with Desperate Housewives leading the pack and Brothers & Sisters settling in as one of the season's new hit shows. Desperate Housewives averaged 20.7 million viewers and an 8.5 rating/19 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates released Monday by Nielsen Media Research. Final data won't be in until Tuesday. That was down slightly from last week's 21.4 million and 8.6/20 in the demo but still well ahead of anything else in either measure for the night. Brothers & Sisters (13.1 million, 5.3/13) remained strong at 10 p.m., beating Without a Trace (15 million, 4.4/11) in the demo but being beaten in viewership. Last week's Without a Trace -- and the rest of the CBS schedule -- was about a half hour off due to a late-running football game but that wasn't the case this week. »

'Housewives' slips in premiere

25 September 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- The ladies of Wisteria Lane in their third-season premiere helped give ABC the nightly victory Sunday, though Desperate Housewives was down significantly from its monster Season 2 premiere last fall. Meanwhile, CBS appears to have significantly bolstered its Sunday fortunes with the relocation of the drama Without a Trace, starring Anthony LaPaglia, from Thursday to the 10 p.m. slot and the shift of Cold Case to 9 p.m. Trace held its own against the debut of ABC's Brothers & Sisters, which had a leg up from a strong Housewives lead-in; Cold Case also did respectable business in its first head-to-head outing with a fresh installment of Housewives. The premiere of Housewives was the night's top show in viewership and adults 18-49 with 23.8 million viewers and a 9.5 rating/21 share, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. As strong as those numbers were, Housewives couldn't match its sophomore-season premiere (28.4 million, 12.3/26). »

CBS outdances rivals in Thursday rate race

4 August 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Fox's So You Think You Can Dance won the 9 p.m. showdown against CBS's stalwart CSI and NBC's America's Got Talent. But it was CBS that went away from the dance with the nightly victory in the adults 18-49 demographic. For another time this season, CBS's CSI (9.6 million, 2.8 rating/8 share) and Without a Trace (10.5 million, 2.8/8) repeats -- along with an original Big Brother (7.2 million, 2.6/9) -- rose to the top of primetime, according to preliminary data released Friday by Nielsen Media Research. That was despite a strong finish for Fox with Dance, which brought in 8.2 million viewers and a 3.2/10 in the demographic. NBC's results show for America's Got Talent averaged 7.9 million viewers and a 2.3/7 in the demo for a third-place finish at 9 p.m., while its Windfall (4.1 million, 1.6/5) came in third against Without a Trace and ABC's Primetime (7.1 million, 2.5/7). »

'Dance' goes distance as Fox dominates

1 August 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Fox and CBS dominated last week's top 10 ratings, with Fox taking the top four slots and its So You Think You Can Dance outdistancing NBC's America's Got Talent. The week's banner show was Wednesday's Dance, which brought in 9.2 million viewers and a 3.8 rating/11 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to data for the week ending Sunday released by Nielsen Media Research. Fox took up the next three in the top five as well: Hell's Kitchen (7.5 million, 3.5/10); Thursday's Dance (8.4 million, 3.4/10); and House (10 million, 3.3/9). NBC's Last Comic Standing (7.4 million, 3.2/9) rounded out the top five. Further down the list -- but still in the top 10 tied with three other shows -- was NBC's Talent. Talent had the makings of a bona fide hit earlier in the summer but has since cooled off slightly in the demo. Its two-hour telecast Wednesday brought in a strong 10.3 million viewers but only a 2.9/9 in the demo, the same as CBS' Big Brother (7.3 million, 2.9/9) and Without a Trace (10.5 million, 2.9/9). »

28 July 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Fox once again jumped to the head of the primetime line Thursday with So You Think You Can Dance, but yet again it was rock-steady CBS that took the night in the key adults 18-49 demographic.

So You Think You Can Dance averaged 8.1 million viewers and a 3.3 rating/10 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary ratings estimates from Nielsen Media Research. That bettered its 9 p.m. competition, CSI (10.1 million, 3.0/9) as well as America's Got Talent (7.6 million, 2.4/7) and Grey's Anatomy (6 million, 2.2/7). But CBS came roaring back with hour-leading results at 8 p.m and 10 p.m. Big Brother (7.2 million, 2.5/9) beat by far anything else on the other networks at 8 p.m. while Without a Trace (10.4 million, 2.9/9) did the same thing at 10 p.m. The repeat faced off against originals Primetime (6.9 million, 2.5/8) and NBC's Windfall (4.5 million, 1.8/6). Nightly averages: ABC (6.1 million, 2.1/7); CBS (9.2 million, 2.8/9); NBC (5.7 million, 2.0/6); Fox (6 million, 2.5/8); The WB (2 million, 0.8./3); and UPN (1.6 million, 0.6/2). »

TCA: Fox's Liguori chastens FCC

24 July 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

PASADENA -- As Fox, CBS and NBC are locked into a legal battle with the FCC over the commission's indecency rules, Fox's entertainment president Peter Liguori had some harsh words for the media regulators on Monday. "The FCC rules create a chilling effect on creativity," he said during Fox's portion of Television Critics Assn.'s summer press tour. "The rules are murky and none of (broadcast networks') business plans are designed to handle such huge fines." Fox's record proposed fine of $1.18 million for the reality series Married by America was eclipsed earlier this year by the $3.6 million sanction proposed for CBS' drama Without a Trace. »

CBS affils rebut FCC's 'Trace' fine

13 June 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

WASHINGTON -- CBS affiliates told the FCC that its proposal to fine stations for airing an episode of Without a Trace should be tossed because the complaints didn't come from real people. In a motion filed Tuesday at the commission, the affiliates argued against the complaints that resulted in a FCC proposal to levy $3.3 million in fines for CBS stations that aired the Trace episode. The affiliates claim that not one of the 4,211 complaints the FCC received came from any place outside "the websites operated by two advocacy groups -- the Parents Television Council and, to a much lesser extent, the American Family Association." »

Return of 'Chief' fails to excite Thursday audiences

14 April 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Commander in Chief wasn't able to muster the troops in its return to primetime Thursday.
