    Reruns Reign With Summer TV Viewers

    From the AP

    NEW YORK - So far this summer, television viewers prefer reruns of old favorites to anything new that broadcast networks have to offer.

    Of the 16 most-watched programs in prime-time last week, all but one Fox's "American Juniors" was a rerun, according to Nielsen Media Research.

    ABC's rerun-heavy schedule had 15 percent more viewers last week than for a comparable week last summer. Some of its comedies, particularly "According to Jim," are finding an audience the second time around.

    Drama franchises played well: Nielsen's top 10 had all three of the "Law & Order" shows. The two "CSI" shows topped the list.

    CBS' "Without a Trace" was seen by 12.6 million people Thursday, nearly twice the 6.9 million people who watched NBC's "ER" at the same time.

    It's still early, but none of the new reality shows exhibit breakout potential. NBC's "Last Comic Standing" may have the best shot, finishing in last week's top 20.

    In cable, the USA network drew a series-record 5.4 million viewers for the second season premiere of "Monk" on Friday night, Nielsen said.

    For the week, CBS averaged 8.1 million viewers (5.6 rating, 10 share), NBC had 7.4 million (5.1, 9), Fox and ABC both had 6.2 million (ABC: 4.2, 8; Fox: 4.0, 7), UPN had 2.8 million (1.9, 3), the WB had 2.5 million (1.8, 3) and Pax TV had 920,000 (0.7, 1).

    NBC's "Nightly News" won the evening news ratings race, averaging 9.2 million viewers (6.6 rating, 15 share). ABC's "World News Tonight" was second, averaging 8.2 million viewers (6.0, 13) and the "CBS Evening News' had 6.9 million (5.0, 11).

    A ratings point represents 1,067,000 households, or 1 percent of the nation's estimated 106.7 million TV homes. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show.

    For the week of June 16-22, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (news - Y! TV)," CBS, 14.3 million; "CSI: Miami," CBS, 13.7 million; "Everybody Loves Raymond (news - Y! TV)," CBS, 13 million; "Without a Trace," CBS, 12.6 million; "King of Queens," CBS, 12.4 million; "60 Minutes," CBS, 11.6 million; "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," NBC, 10.7 million; "Law & Order: SVU," NBC, 10.3 million; "Law & Order," NBC, 10.1 million; "American Juniors," Fox, 9.8 million.

    It is pretty pathetic, isn't it?
