Fox Wins 12 Thursdays
August 10, 2007 2:54 PM
Fox’s ratings domination continues. They won last night—just like they’ve won the past 11 Thursdays in a row. This, points out the network, is a record for Fox. Too bad ceaseless victories make for dull ratings reporting.
Armed with pre-season football (Indianapolis vs. Dallas), Fox averaged a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49 for the night, edging out second place CBS (preliminary reports had the networks tied, this is based on the just-released nationals). CBS’s “Big Brother” scored its highest Thursday rating of the summer with a 3.0.
NBC was third with repeats. ABC was fourth with repeats. The CW presented the much-anticipated, two-hour premiere of their new high-concept drama series ... except, of course, they didn’t and only aired repeats.
