Morning Ratings Flash - Rick Kissell

ABC rode strong showings for “The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” and “According to Jim” to a Tuesday victory among adults 18-49, according to preliminary nationals from Nielsen. CBS finished fourth in demos but led the night in total viewers.

“Charlie Brown” (5.0/14 in adults 18-49, 13.2 million viewers overall) dominated its 8 o’clock timeslot in key demos and drew the best kids rating for a broadcast program (7.7/23) since Fox’s finale of “American Idol 2” last May. Net’s “According to Jim” (5.0/13 in adults 18-49, 11.2 million viewers overall) led at 9, and “NYPD Blue” (4.2/11 in adults 18-49, 11 million viewers overall) finished in its most competitive position yet opposite NBC’s winning “Law & Order: SVU” (4.7/13 in adults 18-49, 12.1 million viewers overall) at 10.

At NBC, “Whoopi” (3.6/10 in adults 18-49, 10.6 million viewers overall) placed second at 8 in 18-49 and “Frasier” (4.1/10 in adults 18-49, 11 million viewers overall) ran third at 9.

Fox ran third, led by the third-season premiere of drama “24” (4.7/12 in adults 18-49, 11.6 million viewers overall), although it was down from last year. “24” tied with ABC for the lead among 18-49 from 9 to 10.

CBS was paced by “Navy NCIS” (2.9/8 in adults 18-49, 13.5 million viewers overall), which was second for its 8 o’clock hour in adults 25-54.

Preliminary 18-49 averages: ABC, 4.5/12; NBC, 4.0/11; Fox, 3.8/10; CBS, 2.6/7; WB, 1.5/4; UPN, 1.3/3.
