NATIONAL NIELSEN RATINGS FOR THE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 1 - 7, 2010

SUPER BOWL CAN'T TOPPLE FOX'S SEASON HIGH!

FOX is Runner-Up During Super Bowl Week, But Still Claims Top-Rated Week of the 2009-10 Season

The final audition rounds of AMERICAN IDOL, the winter finales of BONES and FRINGE, and strong performances by KITCHEN NIGHTMARES and the NASCAR: BUD SHOOTOUT race led FOX to a weekly rating of 3.2/9 among Adults 18-49. Despite the strong Super Bowl performance on CBS on Sunday, FOX still claims the highest rated week of the season (8.8 rating during the week of 1/18/10, Live + Same Day). This marks the first time since the 2001/2002 broadcast season that the network carrying the football face-off did not also have the top-rated week of the season among Adults 18-49.

On Tuesday, AMERICAN IDOL and KITCHEN NIGHTMARES drew large audiences, leading to a nightly win for FOX in Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34, Adults 25-54, Teens, Total Viewers and all key demos.

In the 9p hour KITCHEN NIGHTMARES posted a 3.8/9 among Adults 18-49, breaking show records by delivering its highest ratings ever in Adults 18-49 and Total Viewers.

Wednesday's AMERICAN IDOL ROAD TO HOLLYWOOD special gave FOX a dominant win on the night, ranking No. 1 in Adults 18-49, Adults 18-34, Adults 25-54, Teens, Total Viewers and all key demos.

The 9p AMERICAN IDOL ROAD TO HOLLYWOOD special delivered a 7.8/21 among Adults 18-49.

AMERICAN IDOL outperformed its closest competition in the 9p hour by a substantial +105% among Adults 18-49, +113% among Adults 18-34, +455% in Teens and +43% in Total Viewers.

The winter finales of BONES and FRINGE gave FOX a very close second-place finish on a highly competitive Thursday night. So far this season, FOX's regular Thursday programming outperforms last year's regular Thursday programming for the same weeks by +14% among Adults 18-49 and +51% in Total Viewers.
