Once again, the spin-offs won their timeslots by a landslide this week, while the original CSI aired a repeat, which was beaten by Grey’s Anatomy. Overall, CBS did quite well this month, winning most viewers during November sweeps.

Although NBC won Monday night, CBS led in households with an 8.6/13 to NBC’s 8.2/12. CSI: Miami dominated the 10:00 pm timeslot with an 11.1/18, versus ABC’s The Bachelor with 7.7/12 and NBC’s Studio 60 with 4.8/8.

CBS won the final night of November sweeps on Wednesday with a 9.5 rating/15 share. NBC came in second with 5.9/9 and Fox tood third with a 4.8/7. At 10:00 pm, CSI:NY handily won its timeslot with a 10.5/17. Medium earned a 5.5/9 for NBC and 20/20 special on ABC came in at 5.0/8.

With CBS airing a repeat of CSI, ABC easily took Thursday night with a 10.8/17 to CBS’ 8.6/13. NBC came in third with a 6.5/10. In the 9:00 pm timeslot, ABC’s Gray’s Anatomy beat a CSI repeat, 15.4/23 to 9.9/15. NBC came in third with Scrubs, 4.9/7, and 30 Rock, 4.0/6.

With November sweeps now over, all three major networks are claiming success. It depends on which numbers one looks at. CBS had the most viewers, averaging over 13 million per night. ABC was second with 11.6 and NBC came in third with 10.5 million. However, in the 18-49 demographic that advertisers adore so much, CBS came in second place. CBS is down by more than a million viewers compared ot last November and down by 14 percent among adults 18-49. For all the talks of NBC’s struggling series, it is the only network to post across-the-board gains compared to last November.
