SUPER BOWL CAN'T TOPPLE FOX'S SEASON HIGH!

FOX is Runner-Up During Super Bowl Week, But Still Claims Top-Rated Week of the 2009-10 Season

The final audition rounds of AMERICAN IDOL, the winter finales of BONES and FRINGE, and strong performances by KITCHEN NIGHTMARES and the NASCAR: BUD SHOOTOUT race led FOX to a weekly rating of 3.2/9 among Adults 18-49. Despite the strong Super Bowl performance on CBS on Sunday, FOX still claims the highest rated week of the season (8.8 rating during the week of 1/18/10, Live + Same Day). This marks the first time since the 2001/2002 broadcast season that the network carrying the football face-off did not also have the top-rated week of the season among Adults 18-49.

In the 9p hour KITCHEN NIGHTMARES posted a 3.8/9 among Adults 18-49, breaking show records by delivering its highest ratings ever in Adults 18-49 and Total Viewers.

So far this season, FOX's regular Thursday programming outperforms last year's regular Thursday programming for the same weeks by +14% among Adults 18-49 and +51% in Total Viewers.
