Fast National ratings for Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2008

Collectively, a good number of people watched primary election coverage Tuesday night. Super Tuesday was still no match for FOX in the ratings, however.

FOX averaged a 14.7 rating/22 share for the night, trouncing its network competition. NBC finished second at 4.6/7, followed by CBS at 4.2/6. ABC's 3.6/6 was good for fourth, and The CW was a couple more points back at 1.6/2.

Among adults 18-49, FOX's 10.1 rating beat the combined total of the other four nets. NBC, 2.8, finished a distant second. CBS took third at 1.5, edging ABC's 1.4. The CW drew a 1.0.

"American Idol," per usual, dominated at 8 p.m. with a 15.8/24. CBS came in second with an "NCIS" rerun, 6.0/9. "The Biggest Loser" put NBC in third, ahead of Super Tuesday coverage, 3.4/5, on ABC. The CW got a 1.2/2 from "Reaper."

FOX stayed on top at 9 p.m. with "House," 13.7/20. "The Biggest Loser" improved to 5.5/8, moving NBC into second. ABC's primary coverage ticked up to 3.8/6, which beat out CBS' own Super Tuesday special. "One Tree Hill" scored a 2.0/3 for The CW.

All three networks switched to primary coverage at 10 p.m., with NBC, 3.8/6, holding a slight lead over ABC, 3.6/6. CBS earned a 3.2/5 for the hour.

Still no final word on Monday ratings, although we do have some adults 18-49 figures for the night. NBC led the demographic with "American Gladiators" and "Deal or No Deal" averaging a 4.1 rating. ABC drew a 3.3, edging FOX's 3.2. CBS scored a 2.8. Numbers for The CW were unavailable.
