"Dancing With Stars" And "Survivor" Beat Olympics
Overnight ratings are still sketchy -- but a press release from CBS makes clear that Dancing With The Stars ranked Number One and Survivor ranked Number Two in both total viewers and the coveted 18-49 demos. That's right, the Olympics ranked THIRD in the 8 p.m. hour. At 9 p.m., rerun of CSI tied the Olympics and even increased its audience levels over "Survivor." NBC is doing so poorly this season, that even a third place ranking by the Olympics is useful, even on a Thursday night when NBC used to reign supreme. More specific ratings when they're available.
