laurence fishburne csi 320 TV ratings: CBS clued in to Thursday winFast National ratings for Thursday, Jan. 14, 2010

“Grey’s Anatomy” pulled in Thursday’s best demographic numbers, but the show couldn’t match “CSI” in the total audience race. The night as a whole, however, was nothing to write home about for the broadcast networks

Led by “CSI,” CBS won the night with 13.4 million viewers and an 8.4 rating/14 share in households. ABC (9.7 million, 6.3/10) came in second, a little bit ahead of FOX (8.6 million, 5.2/8). NBC’s 4.8 million and 3.1/5 was good enough for fourth, while The CW (1.5 million, 1.0/2), per usual, trailed.

ABC scored highest among adults 18-49 with a 3.4 rating. CBS and FOX tied for second at 2.9. NBC averaged 2.0 and The CW 0.6.
