More People Watched a CSI Rerun Than NBC’s Snowden Interview

The ratings for last night’s NBC News exclusive interview, Inside The Mind of Edward Snowden, are in and while the special presentation did well in the 18-49 demographic, it still drew less viewers overall than a repeat episode of CSI on CBS.

In total viewers, the Snowden special had 5.91M total viewers at 10 p.m. while CSI had 6.14M. NBC did lead the time slot in the demo with 1.3 ratings compared to CBS’ 1.1. In both categories, a new episode of ABC’s Motive came in third with 3.95M total viewers and a 0.9 rating in the demo.

Brian Williams’ interview with Snowden tied for second place in the demo for the evening overall, matching a rerun of Modern Family on ABC, which also had a 1.3. Only the premiere of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance had a higher demo rating with 1.6 at 8 p.m.
