The first week of the new fall television season was a banner week for CBS.
The network not only won the week overall, but claimed the top-rated program and premiered the most-watched new show, according to Nielsen ratings.
The highest-rated program of the week was the season premiere of NCIS last Tuesday. Its spinoff, NCIS: LOS ANGELES, took second place for the week, and THE GOOD WIFE ranked 15th for the week. Both ‘LA’ and ‘Wife’ are new shows.
CBS had 11 of its shows in the top 20 for the week, including CSI, CRIMINAL MINDS, and THE MENTALIST.
The venerable 60 MINUTES launched its 42 season ranking 13th for the week.
TWO AND A HALF MEN ranked 17th and BIG BANG THEORY ranked 19th for the week.
Thanks to everyone who watched LIVE 5 WCSC during premiere week and we hope you’re as excited about the new season as we are!
