�RELATED,� �7TH HEAVEN� AND �CHARMED� ALL HAVE SUCCESS STORIES FOR THE WEEK

The WB network, led by its powerhouse Tuesday and Thursday lineups achieved either gains or parity compared to the parallel week last season in all 18-34 and 18-49 demos as well as in persons 12-34 and men 12-34.

The network's Thursday dynamic duo of SMALLVILLE and EVERWOOD set several network and time period all-time records, establishing the night as television's best scheduling move of the season. SMALLVILLE went on to rank #19 on television for the week among persons 12-34 (3.1/10), #15 in men 18-34 (3.5/12) and #11 in men 12-34 (3.6/12).
