Once again, FOX takes the top three spots, but this time it's both American Idols and Moment of Truth. A Valentine's Day challenged episode of LOST still managed to be the number 4 show for the week. ABC success story (there are not many these days, sadly) Extreme Makeover: Home Edition rounded out the top five.
The NBC movie Knight Rider placed 8th for the week! Way to go Kit! I can assure you I would not have forecasted a top 10 performance for this movie (had I actually known it was even on), but all the buzz has me anxious to see it.
For the week FOX only placed four shows in the top 20, but when you have the top three, I suppose that's OK. CBS placed eight shows on the list with its best performer Surivor: Micronesia coming in at #6. Also worth note was four out of the eight shows were reruns. CBS is the king of highest rated repeats! NBC placed five shows, three of them were airings of Deal or No Deal. ABC placed three shows on the list, led by LOST.
