- As perfectly SpecTrulated yesterday, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition made its Friday debut with a 1.4 demo rating. (In finals, ABC counted that as two separate episodes, a 1.2 at 8:00 and a 1.7 at 9:00.) I don't think that's a particularly newsworthy result in either direction. The biggest news on the ABC evening was the huge spike by 20/20, which had its biggest Friday rating in almost a year.
- Nothing else meaningfully moved except Dateline, which got smashed by the 20/20 newsmagazine competition and is now at just half of its premiere rating from only four weeks ago.
