NEW YORK (AP) — CBS’ dominance of prime-time television this season has reached a new height.

Nielsen said Tuesday that CBS had its largest margin of victory this season in prime-time viewership last week. Fourteen of the 16 most popular programs were on CBS. The exceptions were NBC’s Sunday night football game and its pregame show.

It helped that reruns and specials dominated the schedules of its main broadcast rivals last week.

“NCIS” was the week’s most popular show. It was followed by “60 Minutes,” in the newsmagazine’s highest ranking since 2009.
