WIPEOUT KNOCKS OVER CBS’S TOP COMEDIES

January 14, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

ABC’s reality show Wipeout took on CBS’s comedy hits The Big Bang Theory and $#!? My Dad Says Thursday night, and, for the second week in a row, wiped them out in the ratings — certainly among adults 18-49. Wipeout attracted 10.65 million viewers while the two comedies averaged 10.30 million, but its numbers were nearly a third higher among younger viewers. ABC remained on top at 9:00 p.m., too as a new episode of Grey’s Anatomy trounced a rerun of CBS’s CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. CBS took command, however, at 10:00 as its hit The Mentalist drew nearly twice the viewers who watched a repeat of ABC’s new Off the Map.
