NEW YORK -- CBS was the No. 1 prime time network again last week -- 10th time in the 13-week-old season.
One twist in the almost weekly scenario: The six out of the top 10 shows that were on CBS were regulars rather than the three Christmas specials CBS had among the top ten the previous week.
ABC came in high up with Dynasty in third position and NFL Monday Football, Dallas-San Francisco, fourth.
The A.C. Nielsen prime time ratings for the week ending Dec. 25 gave CBS an 16.9 rating with a 29 percent share of the viewing audience, ABC a 17.2 rating with a 26 share and NBC a 14 rating with a 23 share.
Nielsens are a day late on holiday weeks and this time advise they'll still not have the news ratings until Thursday.
The Top 10 shows for the week ending Dec. 25, according to the A.C. Nielsen Co.:
1. Dallas (CBS)
2. Simon & Simon (CBS)
3. Dynasty (ABC)
4. NFL Monday Football -- Dallas-San Francisco (ABC)
5. Gift of Love (CBS)
6. Magnum, P.I. (CBS)
7. 'A' Team (NBC)
8. Knots Landing (CBS)
9. Falcon Crest (CBS)
