FOX ran with the season finale of Moment of Truth and an hour of American Idol and crushed the competition...again. Even with new episodes of Criminal Minds and CSI: NY on CBS, FOX still won by a wide margin, and more than doubled CBS in the 18-49 demo. But for reasons I will no longer continue to speculate on, the EYE network was dragged down by Big Brother at 8pm.
CBS still came in second overall. ABC, while last overall (unless you count the CW) was third in the 18-49 demo, though none of its shows (Wife Swap, Super Nanny and Men in Trees) could pull in even six million viewers. Sad.
NBC, was third overall but trailed ABC in the demo with Deal or No Deal and a couple of repeats in the Law & Order franchise. Deal or No Deal again couldn't pull in 10 million viewers and even with three million more total viewers fared worse in the 18-49 demographic than the aforementioned Big Brother.
But next Fall, Knight Rider (they had to give it a try) will occupy the Wednesday at 8pm slot and Deal or No Deal will move to the 9pm hour on Wednesdays and add a Friday 9pm edition as well.
And although it isn't Wednesday night related, I didn't think it was completely wacky that NBC brought back 30 Rock.
