THE BOX: Ratings Game, All is not "Lost"

What is AI doing to Lost? Did Point hold over any AI viewers? How's Alias doing in it's new home?

From Zap2it.com:

The second night of "American Idol" posted a 15.0/22, down from 17.0/25 in its first hour on Tuesday but easily winning the 8 p.m. hour for FOX. It didn't have much effect on the audience for "Lost," as the ABC series came in at 11.8/18. CBS was third with "60 Minutes." NBC's "SI Swimsuit Model Search" took a sizable hit, managing only a 3.0/4. A repeat of "Smallville" on The WB was fifth at 2.1/3, ahead of "The Road to Stardom" on UPN.

ABC moved into the lead at 9 p.m. with "Alias," 8.7/13. "The King of Queens" and "Center of the Universe" averaged 7.6/11 for CBS, beating the 7.3/11 for "The West Wing" on NBC. The premiere of "Point Pleasant" on FOX, 7.0/11, lost more than half the "Idol" audience, but that's not out of line with what other shows have done in the post-"AI" slot. UPN's "Kevin Hill" and The WB's "Big Man on Campus" tied for fifth.
