THE AMAZING RACE 14

American IdolDancing with the Stars, and CSI led overall viewing for the week ending  April 19th with the Dancing with the Stars Results Show rounding out the top five.

NBC, as lately seems the norm,  had another bad week, where no shows placed in the top twenty most-viewed.  NBC again fared better in the adults 18-49 top twenty, where it placed The Office and The Biggest Loser. 30 Rock, Heroes and The Apprentice also made the top 25 for the week with the 18-49s.

Harpers Island, last week's #20 show overall dipped to 34th.

Fringe just missed the overall viewing list at number 22 and was 11th among 18-49s.  J.J. Abrams other series, a little show I like to call Lost, was 28th overall and ninth among 18-49s.

In the table below, if you don't see an 18-49 rank it just means it wasn't among the top 25 shows with 18-49s, that's all I saw this week.
