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.
