.: Review:.

Susan is surprised, and not pleasantly so, when she finds out who Edie's new boyfriend is---her ex-husband Karl. Meanwhile Lynette goes back to work, leaving Tom at home in charge of the house, which turns out to be a better plan in theory. Lynette has a problem of getting Tom to keep the house clan on a more daily basis. Bree's mother-in-law, Phyllis (guest star Shirley Knight), continues to drive Bree crazy with her melodramatic grieving in public places, and Carlos makes an unusual request to Gabrielle after his life is threatened behind bars. Also, Mike and Susan try to figure out where their relationship stands after Mike's previous bombshell to Susan. Susan is late with her newspaper payments, and gets in a fight with the paperboy. Gabrielle brings cash to a woman in a bad neighborhood, which she ultimately holds on to herself. Lastly, pharmacist George reemerges in back into Bree's life, which sets off an alarm to mother-in-law Phyllis and her suspicions surrounding her son's death. In the last scene of the espisode, Phyllis makes a call to the life insurance company and informs the agent that Bree is dating.

As has been the case for much of the past year, ABC easily controlled Sunday's ratings, although "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" slipped some from its past heights.

ABC averaged a 10.4 rating/16 share in primetime Sunday, beating CBS, 7.9/12. NBC took third at 6.5/10, with FOX not far behind at 6.2/10. The WB trailed with a 1.8/3.

Among adults 18-49, ABC's 7.1 rating led the way. FOX took second in the demographic with a 4.7, although that may turn out to be somewhat inflated by a late-ending NFL game in much of the country. NBC's 2.9 was good for third, beating out CBS' 2.8. The WB averaged 1.1.

The late NFL game and FOX's postgame show scored an 8.5/15 to win the 7 o'clock hour (those numbers reflect time period only; West Coast viewers saw other programming). CBS finished second with "60 Minutes," 7/1/12. The season premiere of "America's Funniest Home Videos," 5.0/9, came in third for ABC, edging NBC's "Dateline," 4.9/8. The WB went with repeats of "Reba."

CBS moved into the lead at 8 p.m. with a strong showing from "Cold Case," 10.7/16. "EM: Home Edition" was second for ABC at 8.4/13, down more than a point from last week. "The Simpsons" and "The War at Home" averaged 5.4/8 for FOX, keeping NBC and "The West Wing" in fourth. "Charmed" posted a 2.4/4 for The WB.

"Desperate Housewives," 16.4/24, dominated the 9 p.m. hour and scored the night's biggest rating for ABC. NBC moved up to second with "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," 7.9/12. The CBS movie "Mayday" was third at 7.0/10. FOX slipped one spot to fourth with "Family Guy," 5.0/7, and "American Dad," 4.4/6. An hour of "Blue Collar TV" closed The WB's evening.

At 10 p.m., "Grey's Anatomy" kept ABC in first place with an 11.8/19. "Crossing Jordan" scored an 8.3/13 in the first half of a crossover with "Las Vegas." CBS' movie finished with a 6.8/11.
