CBS took the night in both overall viewers and the 18-49 demo with the combination of Survivor: Micronesia and repeats of CSI and Without a Trace. Winning a Thursday night with no original scripted programming? A win is a win, but the world has changed.
FOX, without American Idol could do no better than second place overall and finished third (behind ABC) in the 18-49 demographic with the return of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? and Don't Forget the Lyrics.
There's not much to say about the peacocks at NBC. It won't be bragging about any second place finishes in the demo or otherwise. An hour of My Name is Earl reruns tied in the 18-49 demo with a new episode of CW's Smallville. Celebrity Apprentice is holding up fairly well in the 9pm hour against behemoths, CSI and Lost, tying Don't Forget the Lyrics in the 18-49 demo.
Last night's Lost was touching and revealed another member of the Oceanic Six. With The Wire gone and House in reruns, Lost is without a doubt my current favorite. Still, Lost shed over one million viewers from its performance last week. Perhaps the early onset of Daylight Savings Time has more watching Lost on the DVR this week.
The 10pm hour was fairly competitive but the winner overall was Without a Trace, which was bunched up with Eli Stone and Lipstick Jungle in the 18-49 demo. Given that Trace was a repeat and the other two shows weren't, I'm predicting only one of the three will be back next year. Can you guess which one?
