'Raymond,' 'CSI' Reruns Rule Ratings
Reruns are ruling the ratings roost these days, with "Everybody Loves Raymond" still capturing the crown for the week's most-watched show, according to Nielsen Media Research.
But some new shows do have promise. FOX's debut episode of "American Juniors," the pint-sized "American Idol" spin-off, ranked as the top-rated original series of the summer so far -- among total viewers and in the key demographic of viewers aged 18 to 49.
NBC did well last Monday with the debut of its greedy romantic reality series "For Love or Money" and kept up the pace with Wednesday's second edition of "Fame." The network's other strong showings came from Tuesday's "Dog Eat Dog" and Sunday's "Crime & Punishment."
All told, NBC won the week in the ratings race for adults 18-49 and tied with CBS for total viewers (9.5 million).
The Top 10 programs for the week of June 2-8 were as follows:
1. "Everybody Loves Raymond," CBS, 15.3 million viewers
2. "CSI," CBS, 14.7 million
3. "CSI: Miami," CBS, 13.7 million
4. Barbara Walters-Hillary Clinton news special, ABC, 13.5 million
5. "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," NBC, 13 million
