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

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
