RATINGS, SHMATINGS

American Idol-fueled Fox won the final week of the May sweeps among adults 18 to 49 and total viewers. Last Wednesday's Idol finale was the week's most-watched show with 30.2 million viewers — that's up 5 percent over 2004's climax. Tuesday's performance edition ranked No. 2, with 28.1 million pairs of eyeballs, followed by the season finales of CSI: Miami (No. 3 with 21.2 million), Lost (No. 4 with 20.7 million) and House (No. 5 with 19.5 million). And if you look further down the list... keep going.... you're almost there... just a few more spots... you'll find Britney & Kevin: Chaotic, which plummeted to No. 77 with a series-low 3 million viewers. That noise you hear is UPN execs going, "Oops."
