� ABC�s Thursday delivery was up by 2.2 million viewers and by 48% in Adults 18-49 from the same night last year (14.5 million and 4.4/11 on 2/9/06).

�Ugly Betty� (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

Opposite the season premiere of CBS� �Survivor: Fiji,� ABC�s freshman �Ugly Betty� delivered a solid second place in Total Viewers (14.3 million) and Adults 18-49 (4.7/12), and ranked No. 1 ahead of �Survivor� in Adults 18-34 (4.8/14) and Women 18-34 (7.2/19). For the second week in a row, �Betty� was surpassed by only ABC�s �Grey�s Anatomy� to rank as the No. 2 TV program on Thursday with Women 18-34.

�Grey�s Anatomy� (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

Thursday�s No. 1 TV program in viewers and young adults, ABC's �Grey's Anatomy� overshadowed CBS� �C.S.I.� at 9:00 p.m. �Grey�s� outdelivered �C.S.I.� by 2.7 million viewers (25.0 million vs. 22.3 million) and by 57% in Adults 18-49 (10.7/25 vs. 6.8/16). In the past two Thursday�s, �Grey�s� has delivered its two biggest winning advantages ever over originals of �C.S.I.� in Adults 18-49 (57% this week and 51% last week).

In fact, excluding the show�s post-�Super Bowl� episode, �Grey�s Anatomy� produced the highest Adult 18-34 rating for any drama telecast on TV since May 2005 (any network/any night) � since the first season finale of �Desperate Housewives� on 5/22/05.
