Ratings: Every-1 Watched 100, Heaven Slips
FRIDAY Riding on the coattails - and them some! - of like-minded lead-in Deal or No Deal (which won the 8 o'clock hour with 11.4 million viewers to Ghost Whisperer's 9.95 mil), the 9 pm series debut of Bob Saget's 1 vs 100 was watched by a mob of 12.55 mil, followed not very closely by Close to Home (11.1 mil). (For more on 1 vs 100, read Angel's Surfer Girl blog.) Men in Trees, meanwhile, was down 350,000, to 7.15 mil. At 10, Numbers (with just shy of 11 million viewers) again topped Law & Order (a season low of 9.4 mil). SUNDAY The only stories this week were NBC's football coverage (Broncos-Raiders) being down almost 4 million (to 9.4 mil); Housewives placing first at 9 but again with a new low (20.02 mil, down 750,000 week-to-week); and CW's transplanted Monday dramas - 7th Heaven (3.15 mil) and Runaway (1.8 mil) - bringing in, across the two hours, nearly the same viewership as the Chris- All of Us- Girlfriends- The Game sitcom quartet, though Heaven was down more than a million from its previous Monday outing.
