Just a few bits, seeing as CBS and NBC took a knee with movies:

" With 12.26 million total viewers, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition was up two mil versus last week.

" The Simpsons hour - including episode No. 400 - averaged 9.8 mil, a good two mil above typical numbers. UPDATE: It was, in fact, The Simpsons' best showing since Jan. 7.

" Housewives (18.44 mil) surged 2.7 mil with its season finale, giving the series its best draw since Jan. 8. Jump up and cheer, Edie! Er....

" Brothers & Sisters concluded its first season with 12.66 mil, a 760K week-to-week increase and what looks like its largest audience since... November sweeps? Could it be?
