Ratings Roundup

In this week's thrill-a-minute ratings rollercoaster, CBS remained top dog in a week laden with reruns. Everybody Loves Raymond snuck in as the week's top rated show. The resurgent punks at ABC did pull out the weekly win in adults 18-49.

NBC continues to wheeze, with only one prime-time show (a Law & Order: SVU rerun) topping 10 million viewers. And FOX needs a serious American Idol fix: its only top 30 show was a Sunday football overrun, followed by The Swan 2, ranked No. 43 for the week.

For the first time, cable ratings juggernaut Fox News Channel outrated CNN, MSNBC, CNBC and CNN Headline News combined in prime-time.
