10 January 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- House kept Fox's primetime streak going with a new episode that was easily Tuesday night's top show. It also was its highest adults 18-49 rating ever for a telecast that didn't have American Idol nearby.

House averaged 17.8 million viewers and a 7.3 rating/18 share in adults 18-49, according to preliminary data released Wednesday by Nielsen Media Research.

That easily trounced NBC's Law & Order: Criminal Intent (11.9 million, 3.5/9) and the first hour of the two-hour People's Choice Awards (11.3 million, 3.5/9), not to mention two shots of ABC's Big Day that averaged 4.2 million viewers and a 1.5/4 between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.

NBC came back at 10 p.m. with Law & Order: SVU (14.5 million, 5.0/13), while ABC slightly improved on its lead in with Boston Legal (8.9 million, 2.4/6)

Fox won the 8 p.m. hour in the demo with a repeat House (9 million, 3.7/10) although a repeat NCIS (12.8 million, 2.9/8) was the top performer in viewership. Dateline NBC averaged 9.6 million viewers and a 3.0/8 in adults 18-49 ahead of ABC's America's Funniest Home Videos (7.8 million, 2.6/7). »
