This is the time period's best delivery with a regularly scheduled program since Feb. 20, 2005 in both households and viewers (CBS SUNDAY MOVIE "Stone Cold"), 11/6/05 in adults 18-49 (CBS SUNDAY MOVIE "Category 7: End of the World") and 11/14/04 in adults 25-54 (CBS SUNDAY MOVIE "Category 6: Day of Destruction").
