As with overall viewership, FOX nailed down the top 7 spots in the 18-49 year old demo. No surprises here. The lineup of Super Bowl XLII, American Idol, House and Moment of Truth was indeed formidable.

ABC rounded out the top 10 with two hours of Lost and newcomer Eli Stone. CBS could place but two shows in the 18-49 top twenty -- repeats of CSI and Two and a Half Men.

Although NBC placed five shows in the bottom half of the list, the Peacock appears to be strug-guh-ling. But then again, if you ran a network where your best performing show was American Gladiators, you're bound to wake up a little bit frightened every morning.
