TV Ratings: Thursday (1/17/08)
The writers' strike continues to take its toll on television as a repeat of "CSI" wins Thursday night in total viewers, while Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice" is the #1 show of the night among adults 18-49.
ABC's CEO drama "Big Shots" continues to die a slow death pulling in less than 5 million viewers. "Without a Trace" was the winner in the 10:00 p.m. timeslot.
Meanwhile, don't expect FOX's line-up to go away any time soon - the reality shows have more than doubled the ratings of last year's line-up of "Till Death," "The War at Home" and "The O.C."
