BEAUTY AND THE GEEK retained its entire SMALLVILLE lead-in in persons 12-34 and came within a tenth of a ratings point of The WB's highest-rated show in adults 18-34 and adults 18-49, while building on its lead-in in teens and all female demos.

SMALLVILLE, one of the season's greatest success story, won its time period, placing #1 in men 12-34 (2.8/9) and was #2 in men 18-34 (2.5/8).
