As with overall viewership, FOX led the top of the 18-49 leader board, taking the top four spots with both airings of American Idol, the last fresh episode of House and the new hit, Moment of Truth. ABC rounded out the top 5 with LOST.
While the numbers for LOST are good whether its on an 18-49 basis, or an overall basis, House kicks Lost's butt. I LOVE both shows, and the first two episodes of Lost have been outstanding, but it's not finding the viewers House is.
The 50th Annual Grammy Awards and the Survivor: Micronesia premiere performed solidly for CBS (though not as good as Lost OR House), and while the Grammys still placed, this was its worst showing in the 18-49 demographic...ever.
