International Television: Pres. Bush's "State of the Union Address" gives ABC the win for Monday night.

Fast National ratings for Monday, Jan. 28, 2008 (USA)

All the Big Four networks broadcast the State of the Union address Monday, leading to a tightly bunched ratings race.

ABC ended the night on top with a 4.7 rating/7 share. CBS finished second in households with a 4.6/7, although NBC, 4.3/7, had a few more viewers. FOX drew a 3.2/5 (numbers for all four networks could change some because of the live telecast). The CW, which did not cover the presidential address, came in at 1.2/2.

NBC led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 2.5 rating. CBS took second at 2.2. ABC, 1.9, edged FOX, 1.8, for third, and The CW trailed with a 0.7.

ABC's "Dance War" won the 8 p.m. hour with a 6.2/10. Reruns of "How I Met Your Mother," 5.0/8, and "Two and a Half Men," 6.3/10, put CBS in second. "American Gladiators" dropped off a bit from its past performance, earning a 4.9/8 for NBC. FOX got a 3.8/6 from a "Sarah Connor Chronicles" rerun. The CW went with a "Gossip Girl" repeat.

At 9 p.m., ABC (4.7/7) and NBC (4.5/7) finished in a virtual tie among total viewers with their State of the Union coverage. CBS also pulled down a 4.5/7 in households but drew not quite as many viewers. FOX came in fourth for the hour, while more "Gossip Girl" and "Aliens in America" averaged 1.3/2 for The CW.

CBS led at 10 p.m. with State of the Union analysis, 3.9/6, and "Rules of Engagement," 3.4/6. NBC News coverage and "The Office" averaged 3.3/6, while ABC drew a 3.1/5 with its analysis and a "Samantha Who" rerun.
