  • 10:00 p.m.: E.R. (7.7/13 HH rating, 11.52M viewers, 4.8/13 A18-49 rating) stayed as flat (pun not intended) as can be, taking a first place finish for the hour among adults 18-49, and having amazing growth from its lead-in of more than 100% across the board.

Both comedies incresed slightly from the week before, with growth among adults 18-49 most significant (15% for ‘Til Death and 21% for War at Home), these are still low ratings, and the hour block was nearly defeated by the CW’s Smallville.
