NYC’s Weekly Top Ten in TV: Dramas, Reality Shows, and Competitions Enjoy Lull in Sports Seasons

Once again, American Idol wins big. NBC returned to the top ten thanks to Law & Order SVU. And ABC was nowhere to be seen.

At the same time, CBS put up another strong showing, in part, thanks to big numbers from two rookie series, The Good Wife and Undercover Boss.

Enjoy it while it lasts. The Yankees, and their perennial big ratings, return soon.
