� �Help Me Help You� represents TV�s most-watched comedy debut since CBS� opening of �Old Christine� in March � on 3/18/06. In addition, it stood as ABC�s largest audience for any comedy telecast in the time period in 5 years � since �Spin City� on 9/25/01.

�Boston Legal� (10:00-11:00 p.m.)

For the second week in a row, ABC's �Boston Legal� outdrew CBS� competing drama, �Smith,� in the 10 o�clock hour (10.0 million vs. 9.6 million). �Boston Legal� also earned second place in the hour to NBC's �Law & Order: SVU,� in Adults 18-34 (2.1/7-tie) and in each of the women demographics: W18-34 (2.8/8), W18-49 (3.7/10) and W25-54 (4.8/11).
