'Simpsons' Block Tops Sunday
July 23, 2007 11:43 AM
Gearing up for “The Simpsons Movie,” Fox scheduled a two-hour block of repeats on Sunday and won the night. Over on CBS, “Big Brother 8” tied a repeat of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” to win the hour with a 2.4 rating among adults 18 to 49, but dipped from its most recent airing last Thursday. The rest of the night was tepid repeat-on-repeat action. Fox also won Saturday with its reality-crime block.
On Friday, ABC’s new game show “Set For Life” came in third for the hour with a 1.1 rating, followed by “Greek” (0.8) which fell 20 percent from last Friday’s debut and was the lowest-rated show of the night. At 10 p.m., however, ABC’s “20/20” was the top-rated program of the night.
Fox’s “Standoff” had its season (and presumably series) finale with a 1.0 rating, while The CW continued to perform well with “Friday Night Smackdown!” Repeats filled out the rest of the night.
