CBS had 15 of the 20 most-watched shows on broadcast television last week, not an unusual showing for television's most dominant network. The network had one failure, though: the new reality show "The Job" was fired after only two episodes. Last week's episode had 3.3 million viewers.

For the week in prime time, CBS averaged 8.8 million viewers (5.6 rating, 9 share). Fox was second with a 6.6 million average (3.9, 6), ABC had 6.1 million (3.9, 6), NBC had 4.4 million (2.9, 5), the CW had 1.5 million (1.0, 2) and ION Television had 1.2 million (0.8, 1).

Among the Spanish-language networks, Univision led with a 3.8 million prime-time average (2.0, 3), Telemundo had 1.2 million (0.6, 1), UniMas had 650,000 (0.3, 1), Estrella had 210,000 and Azteca 110,000 (both 0.1, 0).

NBC's "Nightly News" topped the evening newscasts with an average of 9 million viewers (6.0, 11). ABC's "World News" was second with 8.3 million (5.5, 11) and the "CBS Evening News" had 7.2 million viewers (4.9, 9).
