TV Ratings: Thursday (2/14/08)
"Lost" loses audience for a third week in a row; FOX preempts reality line-up for low-rated NAACP Awards; and both freshman 10:00pm shows decline. Perhaps nothing can replace the original "Sex and the City" after all.
ABC's "Lost" still managed to come out on top as the #1 show in America last night, but it was the combination of an all-new "Survivor" and reruns of hit procedurals that helped the Eye network win the night overall.
Somewhat worrying is the decline of CW's "Smallville" which was doing considerably better earlier this season. Is the show's age finally taking its toll? The drama is down over 20% year to year.
