NBC took the bragging rights in adults 18-49 (3.2 rating/9 share) thanks to an original 8 p.m. Fear Factor (5.3 million, 2.1/6), the 9 p.m. repeat of My Name Is Earl (8.5 million, 3.5/10) and 10 p.m. encore of Law & Order: SVU (9.8 million, 3.6/10).

'Race' finale gives CBS Tuesday lift

14 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

The two-hour finale of The Amazing Race was enough to give CBS the Tuesday win by a comfortable margin on a night otherwise dominated by repeats. Amazing Race delivered its highest marks of the season in its 9-11 p.m. closer, which brought in 11.4 million viewers and 4.6 rating/12 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media research. Not surprisingly, viewership of Race peaked in its final half-hour at 12 million viewers and 5.2/14 in 18-49. CBS won the opening hour of primetime as well with a fresh installment of NCIS (16.8 million, 4.2/12). Fox prevailed at 9 p.m. with an original House (14.5 million, 5.2/13). NBC's 8-9:30 p.m. edition of Fear Factor (8.4 million, 3.4/9) came in under the averages that the peacock had been pulling in the Tuesday 8 p.m. hour with The Biggest Loser. For the night, CBS led with an average of 13.2 million viewers and 4.5/12 in the key demo. House kept Fox in second place with 10.8 million viewers and 4.0/11 in 18-49. »

ABC draws with 'Brown'; NBC wins Tues.

7 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

ABC packed 'em in with the holiday classic A Charlie Brown Christmas on Tuesday but NBC won the night with My Name Is Earl and Law & Order: SVU. Charlie Brown, the animated special now marking its 40th anniversary, averaged 15.4 million viewers and 5.5 rating/15 share in the adults 18-49 demographic from 8-9 p.m., according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. NBC didn't do much business at 8 p.m. with the return of Fear Factor (8.3 million, 3.2/8), which was topped by CBS' repeat of NCIS (14.3 million, 3.4/9). The peacock spiked at 9 p.m. with Earl (13.9 million, 5.8/14) and ebbed at 9:30 p.m. with The Office (9.8 million, 4.3/10). CBS' The Amazing Race (11.1 million, 4.1/10) was fairly lackluster despite lessened competition from a repeat of ABC's Commander in Chief (10.5 million, 2.9/7) and the absence of House on Fox. Fox was in ho-hum territory for the night with its 8-10 p.m. telecast of the 2005 Billboard Music Awards (6.5 million, 3.2/8). »

30 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NBC imposes 'Order' on busy Tuesday night

23 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

There was audience to go around Tuesday as NBC was No. 1 with its regular lineup anchored by Law & Order: SVU, Fox scored with House, the American Music Awards did respectable, if not impressive, business for ABC and CBS opened the night with 16 million-plus turning out for NCIS. NBC won the night in the key measures of total viewers (12.4 million) and the adults 18-49 demographic (4.7 rating/12 share) on the strength of 9 p.m.'s My Name is Earl (12.1 million, 5.0/12) and 10 p.m.'s Law & Order: SVU (16.9 million, 5.6/15), which topped CBS' 8 p.m. anchor NCIS (16.6 million, 4.2/11) to ranked as the most-watched program of the night, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. The Biggest Loser (10.3 million, 4.2/11) also had a good showing at 8 p.m. for the peacock as it winds down to next week's finale. »

Fox gave 'House' creators free hand in development

16 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Fox executives never took a pitch meeting on the network's hit medical drama House and offered only one change to the acerbic, brutally honest character at the center of the show, executive producers Paul Attanasio and Katie Jacobs said. Most of the discussions about the David Shore-created series were actually conducted via phone with Gail Berman, the former Fox Broadcasting Co. entertainment president who now serves as president of Paramount Pictures, Attanasio and Jacobs said during an industry forum luncheon on Tuesday at the Museum of Television & Radio in Beverly Hills. During the discussions, Berman made it clear that she "didn't want to see white coats going down the hallway" that's typical of many other medical dramas, said Jacobs, who executive produces House with Attanasio, Shore and Bryan Singer. »

CBS, NBC duke it out on a tough Tuesday

9 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

CBS, NBC and Fox fought it out for the primetime bragging rights on another topsy turvy Tuesday. CBS got out of the gate with the night's most-watched show, 8 p.m. drama NCIS, which drew 17.6 million viewers and 4.2 rating/11 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. From 9-11 p.m., a two-hour dose of The Amazing Race (10.7 million, 4.5/12) kept CBS competitive in the 18-49 derby. NBC was strong at 9 p.m. with My Name Is Earl (11.7 million, 5.2/13) and 10 p.m. drama Law & Order: SVU (15.5 million, 5.1/13), with a big dip in between for 9:30 p.m.'s The Office (7.7 million, 3.8/9). But Fox scored the highest adults 18-49 number of the night with 9 p.m. drama House (14 million, 5.3/13), which improved significantly on its 8 p.m. Bones (6.9 million, 2.8/7) lead-in. »

CBS heats up Tues. with hot 'NCIS'

3 November 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

House was hot, My Name Is Earl had good Nielsen karma and Law & Order: SVU was the highest-rated show of the night in the key demo. But no show racked up a larger overall audience on another busy Tuesday in primetime than CBS' 8 p.m. hot-shot NCIS. The crime drama starring Mark Harmon opened the night for the eye network at No. 1 by a mile with a whopping 17.9 million viewers and 4.2 rating/11 share in the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. In its second half-hour, NCIS gained more than 1.4 million viewers and more than half a rating point in adults 18-49. (The release of national ratings for Tuesday's primetime programming were delayed until Thursday morning because of processing problems within Nielsen. Wednesday night's ratings are also delayed until at least Thursday afternoon, Nielsen said.) At 9 p.m., NBC's comedy Earl (12.2 million, 5.5/13) spiked from its The Biggest Loser lead-in (9 million, 3.7/10) to put the peacock in first place for that half-hour in adults 18-49. ABC's 9 p.m. drama Commander in Chief (14.5 million, 3.9/9) was the poll winner in total viewers. »

27 September 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

TORONTO -- Despite efforts by the federal government to spur audience numbers for homegrown TV series, U.S. network series continue to dominate primetime schedules here as the Canadian fall season kicks into gear. Fall ratings from the Bureau of Broadcast Measurement released Tuesday indicate the top 10 shows in Canadian primetime, and 19 of the top 20, were U.S. series. BBM, which tallies ratings on behalf of Canadian broadcasters, pointed to CSI: Crime Scene Investigation as the No. 1 show in Canadian primetime last week, followed by Survivor, Desperate Housewives and CSI: Miami. Coming in at No. 5 was Lost, followed by ER, Law and Order: SVU, Grey's Anatomy, Cold Case and House. »

Emmy takes up 'Lost' Cause; 'Raymond' ends up on top

19 September 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

ABC's freshman sensations Desperate Housewives and Lost shined Sunday at the 57th annual Primetime Emmy Awards, but it was the veteran CBS sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond that enjoyed one last laugh. Raymond beat Housewives to win comedy series, one of three awards it took home to cap its ninth and final season. But ABC's dynamic duo topped the field with six wins apiece, and other rookie winners emerged, including NBC's Medium and Fox's House. Although CBS, NBC and ABC all topped last year's Emmy hauls, HBO remained dominant, leading all networks with 27 wins. It marked the third consecutive year HBO scored more wins than any other network. »

TV writers wax 'Sublime' over war stories

19 September 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

They swapped stories, traded quips and generally basked in the glow of appreciation from their peers when a clutch of Emmy-nominated scribes gathered at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills for a freewheeling panel session on the state of play in primetime. "I was firmly convinced this was a really terrible idea" for a television series, said panelist David Shore, creator and executive producer of Fox's medical drama House, during the Sublime Primetime event Thursday night. The panel was moderated by Emmy-winning writer Larry Wilmore (The Bernie Mac Show) and sponsored by WGA West, the Writers Guild Foundation and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences and presented by The Hollywood Reporter. Shore, who was nominated in the drama writing category for the House episode "Three Stories," described the show, which emerged as a sleeper hit in the second half of last season, as a "what-dunit" and a character ensemble piece that masquerades as a medical procedural. »

'House' opens with home run Tues. for Fox

15 September 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

House was on fire for Fox in its sophomore season premiere Tuesday. The network's fondest wish for the 2005-06 season was granted as the Emmy-nominated medical drama opened its new season with impressive numbers that came without the benefit of an American Idol lead-in, which the series enjoyed for most of its run last season. NBC had a slower start in the 8 p.m. hour with the season premiere of The Biggest Loser, while WB Network saw some renewed signs of life after a summer in the Nielsen trenches with a solid showing from the sixth-season opener of Gilmore Girls and a healthy start for its 9 p.m. newcomer Supernatural. House brought in 15.9 million viewers and a 5.9 rating/15 share in the adults 18-49 demographic at 9 p.m., according to Nielsen Media Research. The show's vital signs were all headed in the right direction: House grew noticeably at the half-hour mark, from 14.8 million viewers and a 5.3/14 in the demo in its first half-hour to 16.6 million and a 6.2/15 from 9:30-10 p.m. »
