Fast National ratings for Friday, Oct. 12, 2007.

ABC's new drama "Women's Murder Club" had a big Friday night premiere, but not big enough to push ABC into first place for the night.

CBS won the night overall with a 5.5 rating/10 share, followed closely by ABC's 5.4/10. NBC's 4.9/9 and FOX's 4.8/9 battled for third, leaving The CW in fifth with a 2.6/5.

With a 2.3 rating, CBS also won the 18-49 demographic. FOX was second with a 2.2 rating, leaving NBC and ABC to tie for third with a 2.0 rating. The CW again trailed with a 1.4 rating.

NBC started the night in first with a 6.4/12 for "Deal or No Deal." CBS' "Ghost Whisperer" was second with a 5.7/10, followed by FOX's telecast of the American League Championship Series game between the Red Sox and Indians. ABC's "20/20" was fourth, while The CW's "WWE Friday Night Smackdown!" had a 2.4/4 for fifth.

At 9 p.m., the premiere of "Women's Murder Club" did a 7.3/13, handily winning the hour and taking viewers away from CBS' "Moonlight" (4.6/8) and NBC's "Friday Night Lights" (3.6/6), which both also finished behind FOX's baseball for the hour. The CW's wrestling remained stable.

CBS won the 10 p.m. hour with a 6.0/11 for "Numb3rs." The premiere of ABC's "Men in Trees" had a 4.9/9 to edge NBC's "Las Vegas."
