TV's Funniest of the Funniest

ABC took Saturday, while CBS prevailed on Sunday.

On Saturday, ABC won the night via a college football game. The latest two episodes of 'Do No Harm' dropped back down a tenth from last week, posting 0.5s.

As for Sunday, CBS won the night, but it was mostly due to weak competition. 'Big Brother' fell a whopping seven tenths from last week, although it still won 8pm. Lead-out 'Unforgettable' continued this trend by hitting a new series low of 1.0. I wonder if CBS would like to "forget" they uncanceled this show by now. The NBC special 'TV's Funniest of the Funniest' drew a decidedly meh-worthy 0.9. ABC's 'Fall Preview Special' matched last year's 0.4. 'Secret Millionaire' dropped two tenths to an 0.8. The annual MDA telethon (formerly hosted by Jerry Lewis) only earned an 0.2, although it did raise over 50 million dollars for a good cause. I'd say its a timeslot well spent.
