.: Review:.

There's a change in Mama Solis' (guest-star Lupe Ontiveros) condition for the better as she finally wakes up from her coma, but it doesn't last long. The residents of Wisteria Lane all attend the unfortunate funeral of Juanita Solis as Carlos and Gabrielle fret over their financial and court issues. Lynette befriends a deaf woman, Alisa Stevens (guest-star Marlee Matlin), whose children also attend Barcliff Academy with Porter and Preston, but her newfound friendship is tested when she butts into her disturbed marital problems of her husband saying things behind her back.

Meanwhile, Bree encounters more trouble with her son Andrew when it comes to disciplining him and tries to convince Rex that he needs serious help. Lastly, Susan finds herself attracted to Edie's hunky new contractor (guest-star Rick Ravanello) who's sticking around the neighborhood, but Edie doesn't want her to go with him as a favor to their fragile friendship.

Although ABC, as expected, led the Sunday troops courtesy of top-rated Desperate Housewives (Overnights: 16.7/24; Viewers: 24.39 million; A18-49: 10.7/25 at 9 p.m.), a real bonus for the network was Grey's Anatomy, which increased over last Sunday's already winning debut. Grey's Anatomy averaged a 12.7/19 in the overnights, 18.23 million viewers and a 7.9/19 among adults 18-49 at 10 p.m. -- up 12 percent in the overnights, 1.98 million viewers and 10 percent among adults 18-49 from last Sunday (Overnights: 11.3/18; Viewers: 16.25 million; A18-49: 7.2/18 on March 27). Retention out of Desperate Housewives of 76 percent in the overnights, 67 percent in viewers and 74 percent among adults 18-49 was also a considerable improvement over former time period occupant Boston Legal. How do you like that ABC? Another new hit drama!

Earlier in the evening on ABC were America's Funniest Home Videos (Overnights: #2, 5.4/ 9; Viewers: #2, 8.56 million; A18-49: #1, 2.7/ 9), which won the 7 p.m. hour among adults 18-49, and Extreme Makeover: Home Edition at a typically potent 9.9/15 in the overnights (#2), 14.69 million viewers (#1) and a 5.8/16 among adults 18-49 (#1).

On CBS, although 60 Minutes (Overnights: #1, 8.3/14; Viewers: #1, 10.21 million; A18-49: #2t, 1.9/ 7) and Cold Case (Overnights: #1, 10.9/16; Viewers: #2, 14.58 million; A18-49: #2, 3.1/ 8) remained competitive from 7-9 p.m., theatrical John Q sprung a leak with a 5.1/ 7 in the overnights, 7.60 million viewers (#3) and a 2.2/ 5 among adults 18-49 (#4 at 9 p.m., #3 at 10 p.m.) from 9-11 p.m.

Although NBC's The Contender managed to build by 26 percent among adults 18-49 out of lead-in Dateline, a 4.0/ 6 in the overnights (#4), 5.68 million viewers (#4) and a 2.4/ 6 among adults 18-49 (#4) from 8-9 p.m. is still nothing to crow about. Dateline opened the evening for NBC with a typically modest 5.1/ 8 in the overnights (#3), 7.26 million viewers (#3) and a 1.8/ 6 among adults 18-49 (#3t), while Law & Order: Criminal Intent (Overnights: #2, 9.3/13; Viewers: #2, 12.31 million; A18-49: #2, 3.7/ 9) and a repeat of Crossing Jordan (Overnights: #2, 7.4/11; Viewers: #2, 9.52 million; A18-49: #2, 2.8/ 7) from 9-11 p.m. were close to recent levels.
