Tuesday Final Nationals: ‘Prison Break’ on Fox Returns with Decent Performance in Young Demos

CBS again led Tuesday night in total viewers (11.28 million) and adults 25-54 (2.1 rating/6 share). The network also matched NBC for the lead among adults 18-49 (1.3 rating) but NBC earned the edge over CBS in adults 18-49 share (5.1 vs. 4.9).

Fox won adults 18-34 (1.0/5), due to the fifth season premiere of “Prison Break.” It ranked as the No. 1 telecast in all of television on the night in adults 18-34 (1.4/6) and No. 3 in adults 18-49 (1.5/5). It also defeated CBS’s “Bull” within the 9-10 p.m. hour among those same young demos.

The episode outdrew and out-rated each of the five final episodes of Prison Break’s fourth (and then, final) season back in the spring of 2009 — those episodes, though, had been moved to Friday nights.

  • @SonOfTheBronx:disqus this could be on my end, but I tried launching last week’s Tuesday Final Nationals page on Safari and Chrome and it came up as “error” both times…

  • renamoretti1

    I’ll note the disaster for TBS that is The Detour.

    TBS insists of trying to cram down Samantha Bee (producer of that bad show as well as “star” of her eponymous talk show) into the throats of its viewers. Why?
