‘Angel’ lifts CBS to victory

Morning Ratings Flash - Rick Kissell

CBS has captured the final Sunday of the November sweep in adults 18-49 and other categories with a solid night that included football, “60 Minutes” and the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie presentation of “Fallen Angel,” according to preliminary nationals from Nielsen.

From 9 to 11, “Fallen Angel” (4.6/11 in adults 18-49, 17.6 million viewers overall) led in 18-49, 25-54 and total viewers, drawing the largest aud for a movie on any net this fall. Reliable program averages weren’t available for “60 Minutes,” which aired from roughly 7:30 to 9 in most of the country, but it appears to have approached season highs coming out of football.

Fox ran second in 18-49, led by “The Simpsons” (5.7/14 in adults 18-49, 12.1 million viewers overall). Also, “Malcolm in the Middle” (4.6/10 in adults 18-49, 10.3 million viewers overall) was on top in the demo at 9, and rookie comedy “Arrested Development” improved week-to-week (3.0/7 in adults 18-49, 6.3 million viewers overall).

NBC had a sluggish night, but “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” (4.5/10 in adults 18-49, 14.1 million viewers overall) scored a narrow demo victory at 9, while ABC was paced by “Alias” (3.9/9 in adults 18-49, 8.9 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: CBS, 4.8/12; Fox, 4.3/11; NBC, 3.4/8; ABC, 3.1/8; WB, 1.9/5.

In total viewers: CBS, 18.0 million; NBC, 10.7 million; Fox, 9.5 million; ABC, 8.5 million; WB, 4.5 million.
