Deal Or No Deal? It's The Latter


NBC's hope for big ratings this week with last December's hit Deal or No Deal went up in smoke Wednesday as the game show, airing Monday through Friday this week, was clobbered for the second night in a row by Fox's American Idol. The talent contest registered a 16.0 rating and a 25 share at 8:00 p.m. versus a 6.5/10 for second-place Deal. The last half-hour of Idol zoomed to a 17.4/26, far ahead of ABC's Lost, which recorded a 9.9/15 and CBS's Criminal Minds, which was competitive with an 8.0/12. Fox's premiere of the sitcom Free Ride at 9:30 p.m. drew an 8.6/13.
