CBS got excellent overall numbers from the original movie "Stone Cold" and won a slim victory on Sunday night. However, the Tom Selleck vehicle failed to deliver among young adults, a demographic where ABC won the night comfortably.
Overall, CBS averaged a 10.2 rating/16 share, nipping ABC's 9.9/15. NBC had so-so results for its critically acclaimed "Saturday Night Live" documentary and could only muster a 6.8/11 in third. FOX was fourth with a 4.5/7, easily beating the 1.5/2 for The WB.
There was no competition among adults 18-49. ABC delivered a 7.0 rating in the demographic that causes advertisers to pour Gatorade on each other. FOX was well back in second with a 3.6 rating, followed closely by NBC's 3.5 rating and the 3.3 rating for CBS. The WB trailed again with a 1.0 rating.
CBS began the night in first place with the 8.9/15 for "60 Minutes." "Dateline NBC" and ABC's "American's Funniest Home Videos" were second with a 5.9/10 average. FOX finished fourth with "King of the Hill" and "Malcolm in the Middle." On The WB, an encore of "Summerland" was fifth.
ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" had a 10.3/16 to win the 8 p.m. hour, beating the 9.5/14 for CBS' "Cold Case." NBC had third with "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," which barely beat the 5.8/9 for two episodes of "The Simpsons" on FOX. The WB trailed again with the 2.1/3 for "Charmed."
At 9 p.m., ABC's "Desperate Housewives" had the evening's highest ratings with a 14.7/22. CBS was a strong second with the 10.9/16 for "Stone Cold." NBC's "SNL: The First Five Years" was third with a 7.4/11. FOX's "Family Guy" and "King of the Hill" were fourth, leaving "Steve Harvey's Big Time Challenge" in fifth with a 1.5/2 for The WB.
CBS moved back into first to close the night with the 11.5/19 for "Stone Cold." ABC's "Boston Legal" was second with an 8.9/14. NBC's "SNL" special closed with a 7.9/13 in third again.
