So How Would A Song And Dance Contest Do?

Two episodes of Fox's American Idol followed by two episodes of ABC's Dancing With the Stars topped last week's Nielsen ratings. Once again, the week was won by Fox, which averaged a 6.0/10, but ABC was close behind, averaging a 5.8/10. CBS's numbers continued to slip as it placed third with a 5.5/9, and NBC came in a distant fourth with a 4.8/8 and would have lagged even further behind had it not been for old standby Law and Order and game show Deal or No Deal.

The top ten shows of the week according to Nielsen Research:
1. American Idol (Wednesday), Fox, 15.3/24; 2. American Idol (Tuesday), Fox, 15.2/23; 3. Dancing With the Stars (Monday), ABC, 13.3/21; 4. Dancing With the Stars (Tuesday), ABC, 10.8/16; 5. Two and a Half Men, CBS, 8.5/13; 6. 60 Minutes, CBS, 7.3/13; 7. Law and Order, NBC, 7.1/12; 7. The New Adventures of Old Christine, CBS, 7.1/11; 9. Lost, ABC, 7.0/11; 9. (Tie) Moment of T ruth, Fox, 7.0/11.
