Angel 5x11 Damage - Ratings

Monday 2 February 2004, by Webmaster

Viewers: Fox: 18.40 million, CBS: 10.54, NBC: 9.62, ABC: 8.89, WB: 4.98, UPN: 3.01

A18-49: Fox: 7.6/19, ABC: 3.8/10, NBC: 3.3/ 9, CBS: 2.9/ 8, WB: 2.1/ 5, UPN: 1.1/ 3

 Yesterday’s Winners: American Idol (Fox), King Of Queens (CBS), The Bachelorette (ABC), Law & Order R (NBC)

 Yesterday’s Losers: It’s All Relative (ABC)

 That’s A Wrap: CBS’s Becker departed last night after a five-and-a-half season, 130-episode run.

 Ratings Breakdown: With American Idol in the mix, Fox is now the network to beat on Tuesday and Wednesday. On that note, a whopping 18.2/26 for Idol in the overnights from 8-9 p.m. fueled Fox to an easy Wednesday victory, and an overall 54 percent advantage over second place NBC. Among adults 18-49, and based on the fast affiliate ratings, an 11.9/31 for American Idol was 16 percent higher than the competition - all five networks - combined.

Take a look:

 Adults 18-49: Fox/American Idol: 11.9/31

ABC/My Wife and Kids R/It’s All Relative: 2.7/ 7 NBC/The Apprentice R: 2.5/ 7 CBS/60 Minutes II: 2.1/ 5 WB/Smallville: 2.1/ 5 UPN/Enterprise R: 0.9/ 2

Based on the overnights, CBS’s older skewing 60 Minutes II (7.8/11) ranked second in the 8 p.m. hour followed by a repeat of My Wife and Kids (5.7/ 8) and an original episode of the once promising It’s All Relative (4.4/ 6) on ABC. Tied for the number four spot was a repeat of NBC’s The Apprentice and the WB’s Smallville (5.1/ 7 each), with a repeat of Star Trek: Enterprise (2.6/ 4) on UPN sixth. As a reminder, Enterprise will be moving to the Wednesday 9 p.m. hour in March. Also of note is the debut of NBC’s The Apprentice in its new Thursday 9 p.m. time period tonight.

At 9 p.m., and based on the overnights, CBS’s King of Queens won the 9 p.m. half-hour with an 8.4/12 followed by a second place 7.5/11 for the series finale of Becker. Had Becker been a newer series, chances are it would have been renewed for the remainder of the season. On ABC, The Bachelorette (8.4/12) ranked first in the 9 p.m. hour overall with repeats of NBC’s The West Wing (6.7/ 9) and Fox’s The O.C. (5.8/ 8) holding the number three and four spots, respectively. Although the WB’s Angel (4.1/ 5) bested a repeat of UPN’s America’s Next Top Model (3.3/ 5) by 24 percent, growth of 27 percent for Model out of the Enterprise repeat is proof positive how hot this reality hour is.

To compare, Angels ratings of last week: (3,6/6)

Among adults 18-49, The Bachelorette scored an easy 9-10 p.m. win with a 5.0/12 followed by CBS comedies King of Queens (4.3/11) and Becker (3.5/ 9), Fox’s The O.C. repeat (3.3/ 8), NBC’s The West Wing repeat (2.6/ 6), the WB’s Angel (2.0/ 5) and a repeat of UPN’s America’s Next Top Model (1.4/ 3).

At 10 p.m., a repeat of NBC warhorse Law & Order (11.5/18) outdelivered CBS’s 48 Hours Investigates (6.8/10) by a hefty 69 percent in the overnights. Although ABC’s Celebrity Mole Yucatan was third (6.1/ 9 - so long, Keshia Knight Pulliam), among adults 18-49 the reality hour ranked second with a 3.7/10.
