CBS Tops NBC for Friday Win
LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) Fast National ratings for Friday, Nov. 26, 2004

The holiday weekend didn't affect TV viewing much Friday, as CBS won the ratings race over NBC.

For the night, CBS averaged a 6.9 rating/12 share to finish ahead of NBC's 6.0/11. ABC was third at 4.4/8, followed closely by FOX at 4.2/8. The WB's 1.9/3 was good for fifth, beating UPN's 1.4/3.

CBS and FOX tied for the lead among adults 18-49, each posting a 2.8 rating. NBC was right behind at 2.7. ABC averaged 2.3, The WB 1.3 and UPN 1.0.

NBC won the 8 p.m. hour with "Dateline," 5.9/11. "Joan of Arcadia," 5.5/10, was second for CBS. ABC's duo of "8 Simple Rules," 4.6/8, and "Complete Savages," 3.8/7, was third, while FOX's showing of the movie "Mr. Deeds" was fourth. UPN's "Star Trek: Enterprise" averaged 1.8/3, beating reruns of "What I Like About You" and "Grounded for Life" on The WB.

"JAG," 6.5/11, moved CBS into the lead at 9 p.m. ahead of "Eyewitness to History" (6.3/11), NBC's tribute to retiring news anchor Tom Brokaw. FOX's movie moved into third with a 4.5/8. "Hope & Faith" and "Less than Perfect" were fourth for ABC. Repeats of "Reba," 2.5/4, and "Blue Collar TV," 2.0/3, bumped The WB up to fifth. UPN trailed with a "WWE Tough Enough" special.

At 10 p.m., a repeat of "CSI" on CBS scored the night's best rating, 8.7/16. "Eyewitness to History" averaged 5.9/11 for NBC. ABC's "20/20" came in at 4.7/8.
