"FAMILY GUY" and "NAPOLEON DYNAMITE" Round Out The Week's Top Five

Homer's still got it!

· 4 of the Top 20 programs among Adults 18-49: THE SIMPSONS (No. 1), NAPOLEON DYNAMITE (No. 4 tie), FAMILY GUY (No. 4 tie) and NAPOLEON DYNAMITE SP 930P (No. 9)

· 4 of the Top 20 programs among Adults 18-34: THE SIMPSONS (No. 1), FAMILY GUY (No. 2), NAPOLEON DYNAMITE (No. 3) and NAPOLEON DYNAMITE SP 930P (No. 6)
