It was a tie ratings-wise for CBS and NBC last week. CBS’s “The Carol Burnett Show: Show Stoppers,” with 29.8 million viewers, was the most-watched program of the week, according to data from Nielsen Media Research. In the key adults 18-49 demographic, NBC’s “Friends” rerun ranked No. 1 during the week with 20.7 million viewers. CBS averaged 13.4 million viewers during the week, followed by NBC (11.9 million), ABC (11.4 million), Fox (9.2 million), UPN (4.8 million) and the WB Network (4 million). CBS also enjoyed success Sunday, as the first part of its “Jim Henson’s Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story” attracted 13.4 million viewers. But the network’s new drama, “The Agency,” failed to get a ratings spike, even with its time-slot competition, NBC’s “ER,” in repeats. The CIA series averaged 10.3 million viewers, maintaining less than 60 percent of its “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” lead-in. The Top 10 for the week of Nov. 26 – Dec. 2 are as follows:

1. “Carol Burnett Show: Show Stoppers,” CBS, 18.9, 20.0 million homes
