�RELATED,� �7TH HEAVEN� AND �CHARMED� ALL HAVE SUCCESS STORIES FOR THE WEEK

The WB network, led by its powerhouse Tuesday and Thursday lineups achieved either gains or parity compared to the parallel week last season in all 18-34 and 18-49 demos as well as in persons 12-34 and men 12-34.

The network's Thursday dynamic duo of SMALLVILLE and EVERWOOD set several network and time period all-time records, establishing the night as television's best scheduling move of the season. SMALLVILLE went on to rank #19 on television for the week among persons 12-34 (3.1/10), #15 in men 18-34 (3.5/12) and #11 in men 12-34 (3.6/12).

Also standing out for The WB for the last week, were Monday's RELATED and 7TH HEAVEN. RELATED built some traction in its second week on Monday, achieving growth from its first post-7TH HEAVEN airing and setting the time period's season best. Next week, RELATED will air its first original episode on a Monday. 7TH HEAVEN won its time period, placing #1 among women 12-34 (3.3/10) and ranking #2 in women 18-34 (3.2/9) and persons 12-34 (2.2/7).

The WB Thursday continues to establish itself as the best scheduling move made by any network this season.
