On a slow night...
While The Walking Dead was the most watched show on TV last night, and the NBA All-Star Game likely won the demographic, neither were a part of the network TV ratings, which CBS ended up winning thanks to The Amazing Race's 22nd season premiere. The show was even with its fall debut. It was a slow night for network TV overall, although Once Upon a Time and Revenge were up from last week (but still low based on season averages). The Good Wife and The Mentalist were low for CBS.
CBS won with 9.2 million viewers and a 5.7 rating/9 share. It was followed by ABC (5.9 million, 3.5/6), NBC (4.4 million, 2.8/4) and FOX (3.75 million, 2.1/3).
In the adults 18-49 demographic, FOX won with a 1.7 rating, followed by ABC (1.6), CBS (1.6) and NBC (1.2).
