DarkUFO - Lost

Thanks to Spencer for the following.

It was an uncommonly strong performance for the ABC mystery serial, which is ranked 19th for the season in viewers.

On the other hand, "Lost" had puny opposition as most scripted series moved into postseason rerun mode and viewing overall dropped significantly from the week before. "Lost" had 12.3 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research.

Happily for CBS, the premiere of "Million Dollar Password" drew 10.62 million viewers. The Regis Philbin-hosted game show ranked third for the week.

Back for its new season, Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance" premiered Wednesday in 10th place, with the second edition (airing Thursday) ranked 8th.

For the week, CBS was the top network in prime time, averaging 7.33 million viewers (4.9 rating, 9 share). Runner-up Fox had 6.07 million viewers (3.8 rating, 7 share), while ABC had 5.52 million (3.6 rating, 6 share), NBC had 5.29 million (3.4 rating, 6 share), the CW had 1.75 million (1.2 rating, 2 share), My Network TV had 1.05 million (0.7, 1 share) and ION Television had 450,000 (0.3 rating, 1 share).

Among the Spanish-language networks, Univision led with 3.30 million viewers (1.7 rating, 3 share), Telemundo had 880,000 (0.5 rating, 1 share), TeleFutura had 610,000 (0.3 rating, 1 share) and Azteca had 370,000 (0.2 rating, 0 share).

In the seesaw battle between evening newscasts, ABC edged out last week's victor, NBC. ABC's "World News" averaged 7.66 million viewers (5.4 household rating, 12 share) while NBC's "Nightly News" drew 7.65 million viewers (5.3 rating, 12 share). "CBS Evening News" held its customary third-place slot with 5.54 million viewers (3.8 rating, 8 share).

A ratings point represents 1,128,000 households, or 1 percent of the nation's estimated 112.8 million TV homes. The share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show.
