    At least the Almighty Johnsons hasn’t seem to have lost viewers…seems to have a steady base.

    Desperate Housewives is catching up on Criminal Minds! DH also tops night with 18-39 (13.4/33.8) and 18-49 (12.7/30.7). A huge drop for The Amazing Race though. A dip for Piha Rescue in 18-49 (13.4 vs 11.4).

    Yay for Community! It’s rising somewhat in the ratings!

  • Carol

    Yay for Community with 40,000 less viewers than Spongebob Squarepants??? I thought Four was meant to be a minstream entertainment channel
