ANALYSIS: The picture darkened for comedy a bit in the third week of sweeps. The two year-to-year stalwarts, Big Bang and 30 Rock, kept on trucking, and The Office saw its first positive result, but Earl continued to fall apart and Fox animation took a hit, with even Dad seeing a double-digit decline despite having a repeat lead-in last year. A decent week for drama with two high-profile exceptions (DH and CSI). Week 3 Unscripted became our first all-negatives in the genre post, though usually there aren't the catastrophic drops seen in other categories (EM:HE excepted).
