In a fairly awful night for television viewership, FOX won the ratings and CBS took the highest number of total viewers, according to the Nielsen television ratings for Saturday.
FOX ran two episodes of "Cops" (1.0 for the new one, 1.2 for the rerun for the highest rated show of the night in the 18-49 year-old target demographic), followed by a rerun of "Kitchen Nightmares" (0.7). FOX finished with the highest overall rating, a 0.9 for the night.
Saturday night is never a big night for non-sports programming, but so far in 2013, it's been even worse than usual. The "Cops" rerun's 1.2 rating is actually the third-biggest Saturday rating of the new year, not counting the Miss America Competition and NFL football games. The highest rating for a regular show this year is last week's "Criminal Minds" rerun (1.5), followed by last week's "48 Hours" (1.3).
CBS aired reruns of "NCIS" (0.6) and "Hawaii 5-O" (0.7), with a new "48 Hours" (1.1). The network finished in second place in the ratings, but first overall in total viewers (5.120 million).
ABC ran a rerun of "20/20" (0.9) and the Will Ferrell movie "Blades of Glory" (0.7).
NBC ran all reruns with "Deception" (0.4), "Chicago Fire" (0.4), and "Law & Order: SVU" (0.7), and finished in last place.
