The MLB All-Star Game on FOX took the top spot for the week, overall and in the 18-49 demographic. Please note that Nielsen/Fox numbers reported for the game are only the first 9 innings from 8:42p-11:42p EDT. Although the game went extra innings and well past 1:00 am on the east coast, that's how they chose to report it.

CBS' Criminal Minds was the fourth ranked show overall, but did not rank among the top 28 shows in the 18-49 demographic. We only got the top 28 shows in the 18-49 demo, so if you don't see a ranking it merely means that a show wasn't one of the top 28 in that demographic.

ABC's premiere of Primetime: Family Secrets came in 20th overall, but ranked seventh among 18-49 year olds. The Mouse needed something to smile about after the performance of High School Musical: Get in the Picture.

Last Tuesday's season premiere of Big Brother didn't make the top 20, but was #26 overall and #27 in the 18-49 demographic for CBS.
