Most watched TV network in black households CBS vs. NBC

from TMN

Black TV viewers are still making their decisions about where their allegiances will fall with the new season schedule. During the first week of October, most of the usual winners on the Top 25 chart repeated their performance from the previous week. NBC's "Undercovers" lost about 200,000 viewers, going from eighth to eleventh. CBS' "Hawaii Five-O" joined the list of favorites for the first time at No.20 with 1.1 million viewers.

CBS earned 15.6 million viewers for 11 of its shows to take back the most watched TV network title. NBC dropped to second with 12 million viewers across six programs. ABC had 10.5 million watchers for seven shows.

For the first time in four weeks the total number of black viewers watching the Top 25 dropped. Nielsen recorded an 11 percent decline to 39.5 million.
