It's glossed over frequently that CBS also won 18-49 last season. Per deadline:

ADULTS 18-49

1. CBS 2.9/8 (Down 3% from 2011-2012 season)
2. FOX 2.5/7 (Down 22% from 2011-2012 season)
3. NBC 2.4/7 (Down 4% from 2011-2012 season
4. ABC 2.2/6 (Down 8% from 2011-2012 season)
5. CW 0.7/2 (Down 13% from 2011-2012 season)

It's frequently glossed over that CBS is the most-watched network on TV? I don't think so. CBS is pretty blatant with their promotions, and any story discussing ratings has to acknowledge the CBS dominance.

Yes, everyone knows that it's the most-watched network. However, people also know that the CBS audience skews older than, say, the CW.

The point was that CBS still beats all the other networks even if you exclude the 50+ crowd.

Yes, I understand the point. What I was saying is that despite the talk about CBS' older-skewing audience, I don't think anyone is under the impression that they're not also getting the most viewers in the 18-49 demo as well. That's been the case for several years now.

And they don't even have a talent contest to prop up the ratings

Wow, I laugh a lot at "The Crazy Ones"... and cancelled "Mom" & "The Millers" SPs after a couple of weeks.

"Intelligence" is a dumb show, but dumb-entertaining, not dumb-dumb.

I watch a lot of shows on CBS, but the one thing that always bugs me is whenever they show previews of any show on the network it's always billed as the No. 1 new hit show. CBS seems to think that every new show in their lineup is the No. 1 hit.

I suspect the fine print is something like "...among 46-49-year-old Black lesbian paralegals"...

Next time you see one of those ads, listen a little more carefully. I'm guessing they are a little more specific than that. "#1 new comedy" (The Millers) "#1 drama" (NCIS) "#1 comedy" (Big Bang Theory), "Monday's #1 new comedy" (Mom), etc.

Elementary is the only show in the original post that I watch. I actually quit watching The Millers two episodes ago. I didn't hate the show, but I certainly didn't love it. I felt like I had too many other good shows to watch.

That's true, they do categorize the shows more specifically. But they're all still No. 1 according to CBS.

I read many years ago that it was the only show where there is no music in its intro. Is that still true?

I don't know but when you hear the clock tick, you know the pad for CBS Sunday.

Yes. She watches every week.

It was, at one point.

Do any of the Law & Order shows have music in their intros?

Yes, they all do. Variations of a theme by Mike Post.
