Fox TV, which has been experiencing one of its lowest-rated seasons ever, suddenly emerged last week as the No. 1 network among the 18-49 age group, thanks in large measure to its coverage of MLB’s All-Star Game. CBS, however, remained the No. 1 network among total adults, with 5.36 million viewers, well ahead of Fox’s 4.52 million, which barely edged out NBC with 4.50 million. ABC trailed with 4.08 million. Spanish-language Univision also impressed in the 18-49 demo, coming in second. The All-Star Game easily captured first place among total viewers and the 18-49 demo for the week as it averaged 11.34 million viewers. A repeat of CBS’s NCIS placed second with 7.93 million. The two CBS summer dramas, Extant and Under the Dome scored solidly with 7.96 million and 7.64 million respectively. The nightly news race was closer than usual last week with NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams on top with 7.77 million viewers, followed by ABC World News with Diane Sawyer with 7.44 million. The CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley came in third with 6.18 million. Overall, CBS won the week with an average 3.5 household rating and a 6 share. NBC placed second with a 2.9/5, edging out Fox, which drew a 2.8/5, and ABC, which drew a 2.7/5.
