The CBS Sunday Night ratings might be off because of NFL Football. But some of the ratings increase for 60 Minutes is probably attributable to the interview with Barack Obama that they had on it.
* ABC's Sunday night lineup is being replaced by the 2008 American Music Awards. * FOX's Sunday night cartoons are prempted by the episode/TV movie prequel of 24 entitled "Redemption". * America's Next Top Model has its season finale this Wednesday.

Originally posted by ZeruelMaybe you mentioned it before and I missed it, but why don't you cover MyNetworkTV?
I don't cover the ratings for them because the sources I use don't provide daily ratings for MyNetwork. The soonest I would be able to get them is when tvweek posts them, which doesn't happen until at least the following Friday. I had included them in the TV grid before, and I originally had a note saying that all of MyNetworkTV's programming except Smackdown! goes on hiatus in December, replaced entirely by holiday programming.
MyNetworkTV is the 7th ranked broadcast network basically every week, behind the 5 networks as well as Univision (which actually ranks 5th most weeks).
Their current lineup consists of reruns of the second revival of The Twilight Zone (hosted by Forest Whitaker, originally aired on UPN in 2002) and Magic's Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed on Mondays, Street Patrol and Jail (both non-scripted shows) on Tuesdays, The World's Funniest Moments (take AFHV and replace Tom Bergeron with Arsenio Hall) and The Tony Rock Project (a sketch comedy show from Chris Rock's brother, Tony) on Wednesdays, Movies on Thursdays and Saturdays, and WWE Smackdown on Fridays.
Come 2009, the lineup changes as follows: * Masters of Illusion replaces Magic's Biggest Secrets Finally Revealed. So they've replaced one magic show with a different magic show. * Vice Squad replaces Jail. So one law-enforcement-based reality show replaces another law-enforcement-based reality show. When Vice Squad finishes, that gets replaced by Whacked Out Videos, which is a video-watching show just like The World's Funniest Moments, but without Arsenio Hall. And apparently not all the moments are funny, some appear to be "bizarre and weird". * When The Tony Rock Project finishes, it'll be replaced by either reruns or new episodes of Under One Roof, the comedy starring Flavor Flav that only aired 11 of the schedule 13 episodes before being put on hiatus in July.
Originally posted by EddieBurkettSo, with Private Practice moving to Thursday and ABC completely revamping Wednesday, is there any hope for Pushing Daisies or Dirty Sexy Money?
TheFutonCritic believes that they will air the scheduled 13 episodes and then that will be it for this season. The networks seem to be switching to more of a yearly strategy where new shows with 13 episode seasons can start at almost any time. This is possible, but I have no idea how likely it is.
I'll avoid the obvious pun, and just say that word is that Pushing Daisies has been cancelled (blog.zap2it.com). This sucks, because the whole plot with Stephen Root digging up Chuck and Ned's pasts looks intriguing.
The article also says that Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money are likely next, depending on how their ratings are next week.
You believe me, don't you? Please believe what I just said...
Sing this special song. It's just for you. Just started Daisies season 2 and I will be sad to see it go but honestly it got twice the run that Wonderfalls did so it's hard to complain. Had they married it to Lost in the schedule it may have lasted longer but it's a weird little show and I think the strike actually helped it get renewed.
Anything that deprives me of seeing Ian McShane on my television is a bad thing. There was a lot of potential in that show - but it really felt like it belonged on HBO or Showtime and not on a broadcast network.
