Mountaineers Win Big, Fox Wins Even Bigger

Although Wednesday's Fiesta Bowl was a blowout, a blowout is exactly what Fox execs threw over the Nielsens for the game: a 4.3 rating in adults 18-49. ABC came in second for the night with the return of Wife Swap and back-to-back episodes of Supernanny. NBC was third, with the season premiere of (the sorta-new and definitely improved) Law & Order improving on its Deal or No Deal lead-in. Also of note, CBS' second-season run of Power of 10 looked weak with an 18-49 rating of only 1.7, and as much fun as it is, the CW's Crowned only mustered a 0.9. Got something against sequins and pasted-on smiles, do ya? Well, do ya?! — Ben Katner
