Broadcast & Cable Nielsens: Week Ending September 16, 2001

Below are the Nielsen ratings for the 50th week of the 2000-01 television broadcast season; most reruns are excluded from the list. Final 18-49 and viewership data are available for Monday's, Saturday's, and Sunday's programs on all networks, and Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday's programs for only UPN & WB. Due to the events of Tuesday September 11, 2001, NBC, ABC, CBS, and FOX aired wall-to-wall news programming from Tuesday through Friday (UPN & WB only did this on Tuesday) so Nielsen did not report the final ratings for any of those networks for those days. Overnight ratings were still available for those days so those are provided in the second chart along with the cumulative news viewership that Nielsen did report. Cable ratings for this week (presented in both households & total viewers) are included in charts below the broadcast ratings. Note: all broadcast viewership for this week was only available to the first decimal-place and reruns are included in the list this week.
