its four weeks on the air.

On MTV: Music Television, the latest season finale of TheOsbournes collected a 2.8 rating, followed by The Real World
' 2.7.

And Bravo's Queer Eye for the Straight Guy had another good outing
with a 2.1 rating.

acquisition, Law & Order, which collected a 3.4 rating Tuesday
