My Thoughts: “Super Tuesday” coverage couldn’t compete with American Idol or House

#3 NBC (5.9)
#4 ABC (4.4)
#5 CW (1.1)

Thursday’s Top Shows:
Survivor: Micronesia – Fans vs. Favorites, CBS
Lost, ABC
CSI(R), CBS
Without a Trace(R), CBS

My Thoughts: Survivor’s return, plus strong repeat numbers, put CBS back on top. Meanwhile, Eli Stone slipped a bit – and NBC’s Lipstick Jungle looks like the second failed attempt of 2008 to revive the Sex and the City formula…

#2 NBC (4.3)
#1 CBS (4.2)

Friday’s Top Shows:
1 vs. 100, NBC

Sunday’s Top Shows:
60 Minutes, CBS
The Grammys, CBS
Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, ABC

My Thoughts: The Pro Bowl isn’t the Super Bowl, so FOX came back to earth this week. The Grammys fared well enough for CBS, and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition continues to deliver for ABC…
