TV Ratings: NCIS Hits Series High (11/6/07)
Now that's a headline I didn't expect to write, although I know "NCIS" has been a solid hit for CBS. The show surged 2 million viewers last night, getting its highest audience ever - 18.28 million viewers.
Although the show now stands neck and neck with ABC's blockbusters "Grey's Anatomy" and "Desperate Housewives" its 18-49 ratings are however not comparable. "NCSI" scored a 4.1 rating, whereas ABC dramas normally exceed 7.0.
ABC comedies which both debuted to about 9 million viewers are crashing and burning. Both shows posted their worst figures ever, with "Cavemen" getting an embarrassing 4.89 million viewers.
