BEAUTY AND THE GEEK, a social experiment from the minds of Ashton Kutcher and Jason Goldberg, also has been a boon to The WB's Thursday 9:00-10:00 p.m. time period, giving the network its second-highest ratings this season, which set several network historic records - behind only its premiere last week - in all 12-34, 18-34 and 18-49 demos.

BEAUTY AND THE GEEK retained its entire SMALLVILLE lead-in in persons 12-34 and came within a tenth of a ratings point of The WB's highest-rated show in adults 18-34 and adults 18-49, while building on its lead-in in teens and all female demos.

SMALLVILLE, one of the season's greatest success story, won its time period, placing #1 in men 12-34 (2.8/9) and was #2 in men 18-34 (2.5/8). SMALLVILLE also improved its time period compared to the parallel week last season +25% in persons 12-34 (2.5/8), +33% in adults 18-34 (2.4/7), +40% in adults 18-49 (2.1/6) and +30% in total viewers (4.9 million).
