ABC can't maintain its grip on viewers
"Six Degrees" and "The Nine" have problems keeping the audience from
the hit shows before them.
From City News Service

Although ABC is off to its best start in attracting young adult
viewers in more than 15 years, its new dramas "Six Degrees" and "The
Nine" are having problems keeping the viewers from the hit shows that
precede them.

Thursday's episode of "Six Degrees" retained 36% of the 18- to
49-year-olds — and 38% of all viewers — who watched "Grey's Anatomy,"
according to figures released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research.

"The Nine" on Wednesday night kept 47% of viewers ages 18 to 49 — and
51% of all viewers — who watched "Lost." However, all is not lost for
"The Nine," as it matched its viewership among viewers ages 18 to 49
from the previous week, and found more viewers ages 18 to 34 and women
ages 18 to 34, 18 to 49 and 25 to 54.

Fox snapped out of its postseason baseball ratings slump Sunday when
Game 2 of the World Series drew 18.17 million viewers, 6% more than
the 17.19 million for Game 2 of last year's series.

Although ABC had four of the five most-watched programs from Oct. 16
through Oct. 22, CBS was the most-watched network for the fifth time
in the season's five weeks, averaging 12.57 million viewers for its
prime-time programming. Fox was second with 11.89 million, followed by
ABC with 11.21 million, NBC with 8.88 million and the CW with 3.56
million.

ABC finished first among viewers ages 18 to 49 for the fourth time in
the season's five weeks. It tied CBS for the lead the other week.

ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" was the week's most-watched program for the
fourth time in the season's five weeks, with 22.05 million viewers.
The steamy medical drama was also the week's most-watched program
among viewers ages 18 to 34, 18 to 49 and 25 to 54.

The CBS legal drama "Shark" was the week's most-watched new program
for the second consecutive week, with 13.71 million viewers, 20th
overall. NBC's "Heroes" was the most-watched new series among viewers
ages 18 to 49.

Prime-time TV rankings

Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last
week (Oct. 16-22) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research. They are
based on the average number of people who watched a program from start
to finish. Nielsen estimates there are 283.5 million potential viewers
in the U.S. ages 2 and older. Viewership is listed in millions.
