CBS Takes November Sweeps by Storm
By Brian Ford Sullivan (TFC)

CHICAGO (thefutoncritic.com) -- CBS proclaimed victory today as the Eye network won the November sweeps period in three of the four major cateogries: total viewers, households and adults 25-54 while coming in second in adults 18-49. More impressive however is that CBS was the only network to post gains in all four categories in year-to-year comparisons.

The Eye's total audience was up 10% from last November (14.58 vs. 13.31 million) with households up 9% (9.5/15 vs. 8.7/14). Among its target demographic of adults 25-54, CBS was up 8% (5.4/13 vs. 5.0/12) with adults 18-49 up a modest 2% (4.2/11 vs. 4.1/11).

Beyond CBS however, there was little good news for the other broadcast networks as UPN's 4% growth among households (2.6/4 vs. 2.5/4) was the only other gain in year-to-year comparisons.

Here's a breakdown of how each fared during the 28-day period (10/30/03-11/26/03) with the previous November sweeps performance in parenthesis:
