�Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

Jumping from its strong lead-in, ABC�s �Extreme Makeover: Home Edition� dominated its time period in Adults 18-49, beating out second-place Fox in the hour by 49% (6.7/16 vs. 4.5/11). The broad skewing program also ranked No. 1 in its hour among Adults 18-34 (5.7/15), Adults 25-54 (7.5/16) and Kids 2-11 (5.0/16). ABC�s �Home Edition� will rank as the highest-rated unscripted show of the week among Adult 18-49, also qualifying as the No. 1 unscripted TV show this season in the key young adult sales demographic.

�Desperate Housewives� (9:00-10:00 p.m.)

The No. 1 show on Sunday on each of its original telecasts this season, ABC�s �Desperate Housewives� beat its nearest competition during the 9 o�clock hour by 10.4 million viewers (26.0 million vs. 15.6 million � CBS) and by 162% in Adults 18-49 (11.0/24 vs. 4.2/9 � Fox).
