CSI, Grey's Anatomy Still Monsters on Thursday Night

by Paul William Tenny

Remember when NBC owned Thursday nights with Seinfeld, Friends, Frasier, and all the other sitcoms? Remember when everybody just wanted to be NBC? All those shows reached their natural conclusions beyond which most people were sick of the same people telling the same jokes and they just wanted something else for a change. In rolls Fox with their reality gamble that turned into a monster in its own right and now everybody is sick of that, too.

But what people aren't sick of yet is CSI and Grey's Anatomy on Thursday night where NBC is struggling just to beat out The CW - a marriage of the two former netlets UPN and The WB. Compared to these two giants, even Survivor's great numbers look weak.

CBS stayed on top at 9 p.m. with "CSI," 12.7/19. "Grey's Anatomy," 11.8/18, moved ABC into second and was also the night's top show among adults 18-49. Baseball on FOX was third, while "The Office" scored a 4.9/7 for NBC. "Supernatural," 1.9/3, closed the night for The CW.

"Survivor: China" scored an 8.5/14 to win the 8 p.m. hour for CBS.

CBS won the night, followed by ABC, Fox, NBC, and finally The CW. The top three were fairly close while NBC and The CW aren't even in the same league.
