Scoreboard for Weds. Feb. 6, 2008 FOX CBS NBC ABC CW
Total Viewers (million) 21.46 9.46 8.71 6.42 1.54
rating/Share: Adults 18-49 8.7/22 2.7/7 2.3/6 2.5/6 0.7/2

And once again, FOX puts a massive beatdown on everyone.  There's American Idol, and The Moment of Truth and that makes whatever ABC, CBS and NBC are doing look as weak as the CW.

NBC ran with its lineup of Deal or No Deal, Law & Order CI, and Law & Order.  Interesting choices, but not on the map vs. FOX.  But very competitive say, vs. the USA Network (which is NBC's anyway).

ABC ran with its crap filled evening of Wife Swap, Supernanny and the stinkeroo that is Cashmere Mafia.  Look, I'm not trying to be mean to ABC, but this lineup stinks which is why ABC is in fourth place.

CBS at least can get some mileage out of reruns.  It aired a combo of  repeats of Two and a Half Men, Big Bang Theory and Criminal Minds and new episode of CSI: NY which was competitive with Law & Order in the 10pm slot.  But 10pm -- eh.  FOX had more people watching it at 8PM than NBC, ABC and CBS had combined at 10pm.

    I just realized ABC has “Girl-Power Wednesday” but I agree w/u Robert Cashmere Mafia, and Wife Swap suck! I kind of like Supernanny, but would rather see it on the weekend with the family.
