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.

    I am a mere happy spectator to the true gladiator games of our times, television ratings. What fool doth not see we are watching the battle for the soul of the Empire? Anyway, I never watch FOX except for House, but I am pleased as punch they are kicking the snot out of ABC. It is New York v Boston. And did you see whatsername the central woman judge on Idol tonight was wearing very hot Grecian sandals? ( Maybe they were Byzantine.) Anyway, all hail FOX, slayer of the twit network.
