Fox Keeps Hammering Every Other Network In Primetime Ratings

Fox continues to pummel the network competition during primetime — especially among that golden 18-49 demographic that advertisers love so much.

Last week was huge win for the network, with the return of their hit show “Glee” and “American Idol” taking back its spot as the most-watched show on TV from ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars.”

CBS got better overall ratings, thanks to “Two and a Half Men,” “The Big Bang Theory,” “CSI,” and their “Academy of Country Music Awards” telecast.

They had the best ratings of the week, according to Nielsen.
