So, there was an upset last night, after all. 90210 actually got a rating.

That was no small task considering a combined 38 million people were watching results of an historic presidential election on ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox. ABC's coverage led with 13.1 million viewers, Nielsen estimates said.

The overall TV audience for Barack Obama's night cannot be known until the cable numbers come in.

Up against the Obama onslaught, the CW's 90210 scored 3 million viewers, only about 500,000 off its season average.
