ANALYSIS: Once again, it's good to be a comedy. Fox's entire animation lineup improved week-to-week vs. the year-ago evening due to the removal of Sit Down, Shut Up, as first projected here. ;-) The only real tank job was the Earl/Parks hour on NBC, and that was due more to that hour making a big spike on that evening last year. (Although as we'll see in the next set of Thursday numbers, Earl tanked all on its own this week.) A lot of dramas had better showings this week, while most reality shows stayed around the same. Something I observed this weekend in conjunction with the huge decline of Dateline is that both of those hours air against another newsmagazine, and both of those newsmagazines are improved year-to-year. Seems that people are switching away from the NBC program.
