Morning Ratings Flash - Rick Kissell

With “CSI: Miami” again approaching season-high ratings, CBS racked up another Monday primetime victory in key demos, according to preliminary nationals from Nielsen. ABC was a solid second with “Monday Night Football.”

In the night’s final hour, “CSI: Miami” (8.4 rating/20 share, 22.3 million viewers overall) dominated and could round up to its best scores of the fall. CBS also received season-best results from “Everybody Loves Raymond” (6.5/15 in adults 18-49, 18.9 million viewers overall) and remains strong at 9:30 with “Two and a Half Men” (6.3/14 in adults 18-49, 18.1 million viewers overall). Only so-so scores in the 8 o’clock hour from “Still Standing” (3.3/9 in adults 18-49, 10.7 million viewers overall) and “Listen Up” (3.4/8 in adults 18-49, 10.4 million viewers overall) kept the Eye from an even larger margin of victory on the night.

ABC was above average with its “Monday Night Football” matchup between the Green Bay Packers and St. Louis Rams, which figures to come in at about a 6.8 rating in adults 18-49 and about 17.5 million viewers overall. In the metered-market overnights, the game netted a 12.6 household rating/19 share.

NBC was strong at 8 with “Fear Factor” (4.9/12 in adults 18-49, 11.5 million viewers overall) and solid at 9 with “Las Vegas” (4.6/10 in adults 18-49, 11.6 million viewers overall) but stumbled at 10 with a “Dateline” spec on Princess Diana (2.8/7 in adults 18-49, 8.9 million viewers overall).

Fox was up week-to-week with its unscripted combo of “Trading Spouses” (3.3/8 in adults 18-49, 8 million viewers overall) and “The Swan 2” (3.7/8 in adults 18-49, 8.2 million viewers overall).

Prelim 18-49 averages for the night: CBS, 6.1/14; ABC, 5.6/13; NBC, 4.1/10; Fox, 3.5/8; WB, 2.3/5; UPN, 1.4/3.
