SFTV Ratings: Medium’s ‘Terror’ most-watched

For the week ending December 17, 2006 (Monday through Sunday), “Profiles in Terror” a new episode of NBC’s Medium drew the largest audience of all science fiction and fantasy series on broadcast network television, according to Nielsen figures gleaned from various media outlets.

The highly-touted episode guest starred actor Kurwood Smith (That 70s Show) as agent Edward Cooper, an FBI profiler that Allison ( Patricia Arguette) idolizes. More than 7 million households tuned into the episode, resulting in almost 5 million viewers in the advertiser prized 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

Second was a new episode of CBS’s Ghost Whisperer, which scored just under 7 million households with 3.66 million 18-to-49ers. ABC’s Day Break also aired a new episode with just over 3 million households and fewer than 2 million 18-to-49 years olds bothering to tune in. ABC later pulled the plug on the struggling show Friday.

Bringing up the rear were repeat episodes of the CW’s Smallville and Supernatural.
