[via press release from CBS]


"CSI" is Top Entertainment Program in Viewers and Key Demos at 10:00 PM

SURVIVOR: SOUTH PACIFIC and CRIMINAL MINDS posted week-to-week growth in viewers and key demographics opposite Game #1 of the World Series and CSI was the top entertainment program at 10:00 PM, according to Nielsen preliminary live plus same day ratings for Wednesday, Oct. 19.

Note: Due to live sports programming on FOX (World Series Game #1), ratings for FOX and all time period rankings are tentative and subject to change.

SURVIVOR: SOUTH PACIFIC was first in adults 25-54 (4.7/12), second in households (6.7/11), viewers (11.13m) and adults 18-49 (3.3/09). Compared to last week, SURVIVOR was up +2% in households (from 6.6/11), +7% in adults 25-54 (from 4.4/11), +3% in adults 18-49 (from 3.2/09) and added +430,000 viewers (from 10.70m, +4%).

CRIMINAL MINDS was tied for first in households (8.2/12, with FOX), second in viewers (13.11m), adults 25-54 (4.9/11) and averaged 3.9/10 in adults 18-49. CRIMINAL MINDS was up +1% in households (from 8.1/12), +7% in adults 25-54 (from 4.6/10), +3% in adults 18-49 (from 3.8/09) and added +240,000 viewers (from 12.87m, +2%) compared to last week.

CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION was second behind FOX's baseball in households (6.8/11), viewers (10.64m), adults 25-54 (3.5/08) and adults 18-49 (2.6/07). Compared to last week, CSI was up +3% in adults 25-54 (from 3.4/08) and even in adults 18-49.

For the night, CBS was second in households (7.2/11), viewers (11.63m), adults 25-54 (4.3/10) and tied for second in adults 18-49 (3.3/09, with ABC).

Updated Wednesday ratings will be available this afternoon.

Note: DVR penetration is at 42%, up from 38% last year. Last fall, Live+7 audiences for original entertainment series on CBS gained over 1.8 million viewers, on average, over Live+ Same Day ratings, more than any other network. This season, we expect DVR penetration to continue to increase and, as a result, we expect DVR playback audiences to grow as well.
