Zap 2 it.com notes that Countdown came in third last night…
UPDATE: These obviously aren’t the final numbers. I should have mentioned that.
CBS dominated the 7 p.m. hour with “60 Minutes,” 6.0/12. A repeat of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” 3.8/7, put ABC in second. NBC aired a special edition of MSNBC’s “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” scoring a 2.7/5. FOX got a 2.2/4 from “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?,” and The CW trailed with a “Smallville” rerun.
Keep in mind that Countdown didn’t air at the same time slot in each timezone unlike 60 Minutes. It aired at 10pm on the West Coast and wasn’t up against 60 Minutes. Do the ratings take that into account? I don’t know.
