CBS’ "Survivor" drew season-high 12.9 million viewers and earned a 4.0 rating among adults 18-49, helping put that network in third place on a night when reruns where slotted from 9-11, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

ABC led the night and Fox did well with baseball. The Yankees-Angels game drew 10.3 million viewers and a 3.3 rating in adults 18-49.

ABC had a fifth consecutive week win with "FlashForward," snagging 9.8 million viewers (a 3.0 18-49 adult demo) and 14.7 million tuned in for "Grey’s Anatomy" (a 5.2). Ten million stayed on ABC for "Private Practice," a 3.7 in the adulta 18-49 demo.

NBC lagged behind, but all its shows were consistent. There were 5.2 million watching "Community" (1.9). The demo increased to 2.1 for "Parks & Recreation," but only 5 million viewers. "The Office" did twice as well in the demo, 4.2, and 8.5 million were watching, while "30 Rock" had 6.7 million total viewers and a 3.2, which was up 7% from its premiere.
