(based on 'Fast Affiliate' Live+SD overnight numbers)

I'm going to move through this pretty quickly and get back to the NFL because there's not a lot to say here.  Fox wins the night on the old school combo of Cops (5.9m) and America's Most Wanted (6.2m).

NBC re-ran shows from earlier in the week, one which will double count, because it had exactly the same ads. That show is Heroes, which will add 3.6m to its weekly totals unless the rule changes back before the results are issues.  The re-airings of Chuck (4.6m) and Law and Order:SVU (5.6m) fared better than Heroes but won't count in those shows' weekly totals because the ads weren't exactly the same.

The same is true over at the EYE network where re-airings of Moonlight (4.7m) and Cane(3.8m) will not count in the weekly totals for these shows.  CBS debut of 48 Mystery garnered 4.9m viewers, begging the question: why does Les Moonves want any new programming on Saturdays at all?  I'm sure there must be a reason, but for now, I remain unlearned. 

ABC's Saturday Night Football (college) drew 4.6 million.
