[TV] Ratings: The Following Climbs Again, Giving Fox The Win
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.05.2013
The Bachelor does well for ABC...
The Following gained viewers last week, which helped FOX get a win on a night where CBS was mostly reruns. The Bachelor: The Women Tell All earned decent ratings for ABC and The Biggest Loser was up from last week (but even in the demographic). The Carrie Diaries also climbed in viewers. It was another slow night, however, as no show hit 10 million viewers or a 3.0 in the demographic.
FOX won with 8.45 million viewers and a 5.2 rating/8 share in households. It was followed by ABC (7.9 million, 5.3/8), CBS (6.1 million, 4.0/6), NBC (5 million, 3.2/5) and The CW (950,000, 0.6/1).
In the adults 18-49 demographic, FOX won again with a 2.5 rating, followed by ABC (2.3), NBC (1.8), CBS (1.6) and The CW (0.4).
