Certainly worth noting, Fox finished in fifth place on the night (2.2/6) with originals of �Bones� and �Justice.� ABC ranked as the No. 1 network on Wednesday among Women 18-49 (5.3/14) and Women 25-54 (6.4/15).

Editors Please Note: ABC will premiere its complete Wednesday night schedule in 2 weeks on 10/4/06, with �Dancing with the Stars the Results Show,� into the third season premiere of �Lost,� followed by the series debut of �The Nine.�

�Dancing with the Stars the Results Show� (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

ABC's �Dancing with the Stars the Results Show� ranked No. 1 in the 8 o'clock hour, beating CBS' series debut of �Jericho� by 3.5 million viewers (14.9 million vs. 11.4 million) and by 16% in Adults 18-49 (3.7/11 vs. 3.2/10).

�Grey�s Anatomy� (9:00-11:00 p.m.)

A strategic repeat showing of the 2-hour season finale of Grey's Anatomy, as it leads up to the launch of the show in its new Thursday 9 o'clock time period (tonight - see note below), posted a strong second-place finish in Total Viewers (10.6 million) and Adults 18-49 (3.8/10). Opposite stiff time period competition that included CBS' season openers of �Criminal Minds� and �CSI: NY� and NBC's premiere/debut of �Biggest Loser� and �Kidnapped,� ABC's repeat �Grey's Anatomy� ranked No. 1 with Women 18-49 (5.4/13).

� Continuing to deliver added exposure to the show through smart replay scheduling, �Grey's Anatomy� posted its strongest-ever repeat numbers in both Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.
