NBC’s telecast of the 58th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards was easily the highest-rated program among adults 18 to 49 for the week ended Aug. 27, but that wasn’t enough to prevent CBS from winning the week in the demo.

According to Nielsen Media Research, The Emmys scored a 5.2 in adults 18 to 49, a number that includes live viewing plus same-day viewing via DVRs. ABC’s Sunday telecast of the feature film “Pirates of the Caribbean” and Monday’s season premiere of Fox’s “Prison Break” were tied for second place in the demo with a 3.7, followed by a “CSI” repeat on Thursday (3.4) and Tuesday’s edition of CBS summer reality series “Big Brother: All Stars,” which tied a repeat of Monday’s “CSI: Miami” (3.2).

CBS won the week with a 2.3 in adults 18 to 49, followed by NBC and ABC (both 2.2), Fox (2.1), Univision (1.6), UPN and The WB (both 0.7) and Telemundo (0.4).
