was on for an hour and a half and FOX won the night in a blowout. Even with an hour of (two hours, if you count the recap), ABC was a very, very distant second. DWTS is a hit for ABC, but it's no AI. Especially in the 18-49 where AI drew a 9.6/24 and the DWTS results show a 3.8/9. Idol's domination is kind of scary.
While the spread between total viewers betweenand was smaller than the spread between DWTS and The , the gap in the 18-49 ratings was much smaller. Loser had a 3.1/8 among 18-49 viewers in the overnight ratings. Not too shabby up against AI and DWTS!
In last place (unless you count the CW) was CBS, with anrepeat, , and the series finale of Jericho performed pretty much exactly the way they have for the last few weeks. Which, other than was not so great.
I enjoyed the Jericho finale -- even though they didn't nuke Cheyenne, there were still enough explosions (and aciton) to keep me happy. and I wish there was some way for me to buy the unaired cliffhanger right now. I'm sure I'd pay $5 for it.
One note for Reaper fans. A Reaper repeat outdrew a new Beauty and the Geek in total viewers. That can't be a bad thing for its quest for renewal.
