Mar 26, 2007  •  Post A Comment

With “Desperate Housewives” in repeats, CBS’s ‘Race-Case-Trace’ lineup and a college basketball championships overrun gave the network a first-place Sunday night win.

After a half hour of NCAA overrun, CBS started the night with “60 Minutes” (3.3 rating among adults 18 to 49), followed by “The Amazing Race” (3.3), “Cold Case” (3.5) and “Without a Trace” (3.5).

Coming in second, Fox had its comedy block, including “War at Home” (1.7), “Simpsons” (3.3), “King off the Hill” (2.8), “Family Guy” (4.2) and “American Dad” (3.3).

ABC had an original “Extreme Makeover” (4.2), followed by repeats.

NBC offered the season finale of “Grease: You’re the One That I Want” (1.9), along with the “The Apprentice” (2.7), and a “Deal or No Deal” repeat.

The CW had repeats.

Meanwhile, on Friday, ABC brought back freshman series “Six Degrees” to earn a 1.6. That’s down from the prior time period average of 1.9, and down from “Degrees” previous post-“Grey’s Anatomy” Thursday night slot of 3.9.

Also Friday, NBC tried out “Identity” at 8 p.m. (1.8), and Fox’s “Wedding Bells” slipped to 1.7.
