CBS once again claimed victory Sunday night, winning every hour in both viewers and households, but ABC’s “Thin Ice” results show and the premiere of “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” left the network feeling a little hungry. Also, both NBC’s “Minute to Win It” and FOX’s “Sons of Tucson” dropped from their premieres a week before.

CBS averaged 13.19 million viewers for the night and an 8.0 rating/13 share, handily beating out ABC’s 7.2 million and 4.6/7. NBC was next with 5.6 million and 3.4/6 and then FOX (4.5 million, 2.7/4).

The adults 18-49 demo title also stayed with CBS with a 3.7 rating, far ahead of ABC and FOX’s 2.1, tied for second place. Last was NBC, 1.9
