EliteXC Saturday Night Fights on CBS

The two hour season finale of LOST led with total viewers and with 18-49 year olds with FOX taking the two through four spots with Hell's Kitchen and So You Think You Can Dance.  Moment of Truth was sixth overall in the age demo.  Hell's Kitchen has held up quite nicely without the American Idol lead-in so far.

ABC's Wife Swap and Supernanny probably would be better off just being summer shows. Neither made the top twenty overall, but they both made this list. It probably doesn't hurt that they weren't repeats.  Other than the aforementioned LOST and the FOX and ABC shows, all other shows in the list were reruns other than Million Dollar Password (#17) and the MMA debut on broadcast network television.  CBS' EliteXC Saturday Night Fights (#18).   The youth seem to prefer Kimbo Slice to Mike Wallace, whose 60 Minutes was #3 overall but nowhere to be found on this list (or even in the top 30).
