TV Ratings: Monday (11/26/07)
"Samantha Who" moved to its regular timeslot at 9 pm last night and immediately lost the "#1 Comedy on TV" title. Since there will be no "Dancing" lead-in next week and the show will air opposite the "Heroes" fall finale, ABC may have a reason to be worried. Meanwhile, it appears FOX was right - the writers' strike has actually helped it reach higher ratings with an all-rerun Monday night line-up.
A rerun of FOX's blockbuster "House" did as well (or even a little better) than what regular timeslot occupant "Prison Break" normally averages. A rerun of the lead-out "Bones" however did much better than a new episode of FOX's freshman drama "K-Ville."
Meanwhile, there is more trouble on the ABC front. The Alphabet's 10 pm drama "October Road" (Geoff Stults, pictured above) which launched its second season on Thanksgiving pulled in only about 6 million viewers finishing behind NBC's "Journeyman."
