Fresh ‘Hell’s’ Lifts Fox to Win

June 4, 2008 12:13 PM

Hell's KitchenFacing essentially zero original competition Tuesday, Fox nabbed an easy victory in the ratings with new episodes of “Moment of Truth” and “Hell’s Kitchen.”

“Moment of Truth” pulled in a 2.7 rating/6 share in the 18- to 49-year-old demo, down 10% from last week’s summer start, according to preliminary Nielsen numbers. “Kitchen” held steady at a 4.4/12. Fox finished first with a 3.6/11, beating second-place CBS (1.7/5) by 112%.

The only other original network programming that aired last night was an episode of “Most Outrageous Moments” (1.6/5) on third-place NBC (1.6/5). “Outrageous” fell a tick from last week.

ABC (1.3/4) ended up fourth and The CW was fifth (0.6/2).

Odds and Ends:

A light early summer Friday for the English-speaking broadcast nets allowed Univision to take the No. 1 slot. On May 30, Univision claimed first place in the ratings with an average 1.7/6, beating top networks ABC and CBS by 21%.
