‘Men In Trees’ Grows to Series High

Feb 16, 2007  •  Post A Comment

ABC’s “Men in Trees” continues to grow in its post-“Grey’s Anatomy” spot, setting a new series-high rating Thursday night.

The freshman drama earned a 4.1 rating among adults 18 to 49 according to preliminary Nielsens, its second record-breaking rating in the past two weeks. Along with an on-par “Ugly Betty” (4.5), and a strong “Grey’s Anatomy” (10.7), ABC continues to solidify its Thursday night lead.

CBS came in second for the evening, with “Survivor” largely maintaining its premiere audience (5.6), followed by “CSI” (7.2) and “Shark” (4.3).

NBC was third, with an average “My Name Is Earl” (3.9) and “The Office” (4.4). But “Scrubs” (3.0) and “30 Rock” (4.8) seemed to suffer from the competition with “CSI” and “Grey’s.” Both NBC shows were on the low side, while “ER” (4.8) tied its second lowest-rated episode ever.

Fox’s “Til Death” and “War at Home” both had a 2.3, which for “Home” was a time-period series high. “The OC” earned a 1.6.

The CW had “Smallville,” which set a season high (2.0), and “Supernatural” (1.4).
