‘House’ Tops Tuesday

November 14, 2007 11:46 AM

HouseFox’s “House” led an uneventful Tuesday night in the ratings that also saw new series lows for ABC’s “Cavemen” and CBS’ “Cane.”

Fox was on top with “Bones” (3.4 preliminary rating among adults 18 to 49) and “House” (7.0, down 9 percent from last week and not worried about it).

NBC, once again in second place, had “The Biggest Loser” (up a tick to a 3.4) and “Law & Order: SVU” (4.4).

In third, ABC had “Cavemen” (1.6), “Carpoolers” (on-par 1.9), a “Dancing With the Stars” results show (up slightly to a 4.1) and “Boston Legal” (up 11 percent to 2.9).

Fourth-place CBS was down slightly across the board—which is fine for “NCIS” (3.7) and “The Unit” (2.9), but a new low for “Cane” (1.8).

The CW had an on-par “Beauty and the Geek” (1.2), while “Reaper” jumped back up to its former average (1.2).

HOUSE has great writers...funny how it works out that it's a watched, successful series.

If these overly greedy, money grabbing corporations would just spred-the-coin, everybody wins...viewer shares stay up because they have their shows, (without interruption), and advertisers gladly pay for premium product that delivers HH's watching television...this is NOT brain surgery...pay up and shut up, there's plenty for all!
