With #3 and #4 finishes by Dancing with the Stars, plus top 20 finishes by Lost, Extreme Makeover:Home Edition and Oprah's Big Give, ABC improved more than any other network in the most recent week ending March 23 when comparing this season's to date results vs. last season.

Even though NBC couldn't place an episode any higher than 13th, it still improved vs. last seasons to date results last week. That comparison is helped, as usual, by NBC's woeful results last year.

Fox, which continues to be the only network ahead of its last season viewership overall, and CBS all showed declines vs. last years viewer averages to date last week with CBS falling slightly and with Fox falling nearly 1%. CW held approximately even with results vs. last season last week..

Our chart shows broadcast network primetime season to date average primetime viewership for the 2007-8 season compared to the 2006-7 season on a week to week basis.

    Am I just really bad at understanding charts, or does the analysis not fit with the chart?

    The way I read it, Fox is the only network that is up from last season, while everyone else is down at least 8%. How am I supposed to be reading this?

    Julia, you read it correctly for the overall season to season trend. Fox is the only network that’s ahead this season vs. last season.

    My analysis above was just about improvements vs. declines in the most recent week. Rereading it after your comment, I needed to be a bit clearer and will edit.
