It was another night of football dominance. Over on FOX, football coverage owned the afternoon and early evening. Once that was finished, football on NBC led the timeslots.
Over on CBS, 60 Minutes was significantly down. Last week, with the football lead-in and the President Obama interview, the news program saw an increase of 135% in viewers in the 18-49 key demographic. This week, the ratings fell by 48.5% to one of the lowest ratings of the season. The Amazing Race fell by double digits as well and Undercover Boss dropped by 7%. This reflects a series low for Boss. It would seem that America is tiring of the reality show pretty quickly.
CSI: Miami was also down by 8% over the previous original episode on October 24th. Football coverage has played havoc with this show’s schedule and it looks like this might become the next show to go down the tubes because of the schedule disruptions. This week’s 2.3 rating represents a series low for Miami.
