International Television: CBS wins Thursday, but its new series "Viva Laughlin" bled

Fast National ratings for Thursday, Oct. 18, 2007 (USA)

"CSI" and "Survivor" led CBS to a ratings win Thursday night, but a preview of the new show "Viva Laughlin" came up snake eyes.

CBS earned a 9.0 rating/14 share in primetime, beating out ABC, 8.2/13, for the lead. FOX grabbed third with a 7.5/12 (its numbers are likely to change some, as it had live sports). NBC, 5.3/8, came in fourth, and The CW trailed with a 2.5/4.

ABC scored a narrow win among adults 18-49, drawing a 4.5 rating to beat out CBS' 4.4. NBC finished third in the demographic at 3.7, followed by FOX, 3.3, and The CW, 1.6.

"Survivor: China" scored an 8.5/14 to win the 8 p.m. hour for CBS. FOX's coverage of the American League Championship Series drew a 7.0/11, edging ABC's "Ugly Betty" for second. "My Name Is Earl," 4.6/8, and "30 Rock," 3.9/6, put NBC in fourth. "Smallville" delivered a 3.1/5 for The CW.

CBS stayed on top at 9 p.m. with "CSI," 12.7/19. "Grey's Anatomy," 11.8/18, moved ABC into second and was also the night's top show among adults 18-49. Baseball on FOX was third, while "The Office" scored a 4.9/7 for NBC. "Supernatural," 1.9/3, closed the night for The CW.

FOX's numbers for baseball at 10 p.m. were unavailable. Among the other networks, NBC's "ER" led the way with a 6.6./11. "Big Shots" was second in households for ABC at 6.0/10. CBS' "Viva Laughlin" (5.8/10) had a few more viewers than ABC, but the murder mystery-with-music lost more than half of its lead-in audience and also fell at the half-hour mark.
