Grey's Anatomy Ratings Best CSI Again

by at . Comments

In the latest round of what so far as been a tight Thursday fight, Grey's Anatomy topped CSI in two key measures last week.

Grey's Anatomy Ratings Best CSI AgainOnce again, Grey's Anatomy was the night's top show in viewership and adults ages 18-49, with 22.8 million viewers and a 9.3 rating/22 share in the demographic according to estimates released by Nielsen Media Research.

That was ahead of its 9 p.m. rival, CBS' CSI, which garnered 21.6 million, and a 7.5 rating/18 share).

That was good enough for the night's second-most watched show, and the week's third-most viewed, however. CBS also won the night in viewers, despite losing out to ABC in the key demographic by a tenth of a point.

At 8 p.m., the roles were reversed with CBS and Survivor (15.7 million, 5.4/16) taking both viewership and the demo for the hour.

But Ugly Betty (13.8 million, 4.2/12) continued strongly for ABC in its third airing, helping build its case for another night of strength for the network.

The 10 p.m. hour saw NBC's ER (14.4 million, 5.9/16) take both measures, ahead of CBS' Shark (14.1 million, 4.0/11) and ABC's Six Degrees (9.1 million, 3.7/10)

Despite the boost from ER, NBC remained in third place for the night with My Name Is Earl (9.9 million, 3.9/12), The Office (8.8 million, 4.1/11) and an hour of Deal or No Deal (10.1 million, 3.1/7).

The nightly averages where ABC (15.2 million, 5.7/15); CBS (17.1 million, 5.6/15); NBC (11.3 million, 4.3/11); Fox (7.9 million, 2.4/6).

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
