Fox Wins Thursday, But ‘Smarter’ Slips a Grade

Mar 9, 2007  •  Post A Comment

Against a repeat-strewn field, Fox won Thursday night thanks to “American Idol” and “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader,” though “Grader” slipped a notch from last week.

“Idol” earned a 10.3 rating among adults 18 to 48, according to preliminary Nielsen results, while “Grader” registered an 8.0 – still highly impressive, yet down 15 percent from its time-period premiere.

CBS was second with “Survivor” (4.5), down 10 percent from last week, and repeats. NBC aired mostly repeats aside from a new “Scrubs” (2.8) and “30 Rock” (2.5). ABC and The CW had repeats.
