FOX finished fourth in the hour with repeats of "That ’70s Show" and "Stacked." The WB got another good performance from "Beauty and the Geek," 2.3/4, which beat "All of Us" and "Eve" on UPN.

"Dancing with the Stars" hoofed its way to the night’s biggest rating, 9.8/16, at 9 p.m. NBC was a distant second with a "Law & Order" rerun, 5.6/9, and CBS dropped to third with "The King of Queens," 5.0/8, and "Yes, Dear," 4.3/7. The dark drama "The Inside" debuted to a 3.2/5 on FOX. The WB stayed in fifth with a "Smallville" rerun. UPN’s "Kevin Hill" repeat trailed.
