Scoreboard for Thurs. Feb. 14, 2008 CBS ABC NBC FOX CW
Total Viewers (million) 11.24 9.22 9.09 3.90 3.30
Rating/Share: Adults 18-49 3.2/9 3.5/10 3.2/9 1.4/4 1.4/4

CBS won the most viewers during this sweeps Thursday with Survivor: Micronesia its only non-repeat,  but ABC had the most 18-49 viewers for the night due to demo success with Lost

Viewers for most nets saw fewer viewers than the previous week, but that's not surprising with the Valentine's Day holiday.  But we may see a The Peacock is the Home for the Lovelorn press release with both Deal or No Deal and Celebrity Apprentice adding more viewers from the previous week.

Notably so for Deal or No Deal, which last week reported 9.31 million in the overnights, this week 12.04 million.  Unfortunately, the one place this broke for NBC is with newcomer Lipstick Jungle, which premiered last week with an overnight of 7.62.  On Valentine's Day it was down to 6.13.

Lost took a Valentine's Day hit, last week Lost had 15.6 million in the overnights, but this week could only rustle up 13.6 million. it will be interesting to see if they make it up with increased DVR watching. 

I know I chastise the network execs for being insane idiots sometimes, and especially with Zucker sometimes that is not only easy, but also fun. But let me turn it around on myself.  Next year, I plan to be home watching Zucker's network on Valentine's Day.   Because this year, what I did was act like an idiot to  my good friend Stephanie.  A way more heinous offense than anything Les Moonves and CBS are doing with Big Brother.  Steph, I'm truly sorry and I hope you will forgive me some day.

    I remember when Thursday's used to be a great TV night for me (the 80s and 90s and even earlier this TV season). Now, not so much.

    What first came to mind, though, when I saw last night's numbers was:

    What audience did the people at ABC/Eli Stone and NBC/Lipstick Jungle think they were targeting with these programs. Not the average American TV viewer, that's for sure.

    Eli Stone doesn't work for me. One George Michael song for each episode? Well, it's so cheesy. Let's see how long Eli will survive.

    I haven't watched Lost at all since it started again. I was so not impressed with the last season and it's been so long I don't even think I remember what was happening.

    And now, I'm far too caught up in Supernatural to give Lost a minute of my Thursday night time. And this week's episode of Supernatural was amazing. The best yet this season, imho. If you're not watching (which, from the ratings, I know most of you aren't), I think you should give it a chance… :D

    Rachael: You are making a BIG mistake of not watching lost. It is easily becoming the best show on television…possibly the best show of all time in its genre
