Saturday Final Nationals: NBC and Fox Share Leadership on Low-Viewed Night

Saturday night television was again not highly sampled with NBC edging Fox by 1,000 viewers to be prime time’s most-watched network with a mere 2.976 million viewers. NBC aired the 2002 hit spy thriller “The Bourne Identity” (with the new ‘Jason Bourne’ film arriving in theaters on July 29). Fox won all key demos with “UFC Fight Night.”

  1. The numbers shown on Legendary Dudas is incorrect, I wonder if rest of the numbers are a typo?
