ANALYSIS: Comedy is still king, though this is a bit misleading because NBC's comedy block was down this week but wasn't accounted for due to the lack of 2008 half-hour breakdowns. Most dramas posted below-average performances, especially the CW's slate, while a solid ending for DWTS on Tuesday night and a rare decent year-to-year showing for Dateline NBC helped to lift unscripted a bit.
