NEW YORK (AP) — Another week, another audience win for CBS.
The Nielsen ratings company is handing CBS its 11th straight prime-time win in viewership last week, with 13 of the Top 20 programs. Among them were the top three shows: "The Big Bang Theory," followed by "NCIS" and "NCIS: New Orleans."
Longtime late-night star David Letterman notched a prime-time victory of his own with a CBS special looking back on his decades hosting the "Late Show" as he prepares to retire on May 20. "Letterman: A Life on TV" ranked 19th place.
Overall in prime time, CBS averaged 8.1 million viewers, followed by ABC, NBC and Fox.
Among evening newscasts, NBC's "Nightly News" retained its leadership position from the week before, followed by ABC's "World News Tonight" and "The CBS Evening News."
