Two-way ties in Monday ratings

NBC aired Fear Factor, For Love& or Money and Who
Wants to Marry My Dad?

CBS aired Yes, Dear, Still Standing, Everybody Loves Raymond, The
King of Queens
and CSI: Miami.

Fox was fourth across the key categories (except for adults 18-34, where it
was third) with Anything for Love, Stupid Behavior Caught on Tape
and Paradise Hotel.

For the night, the Nielsen Media Research fast-affiliate total-viewer averages: ABC 9.6

Adults 18-49 (rating/share): ABC and NBC 3.8/11; CBS 3.1/9; and Fox 2.4/7.

In the Nielsen local metered markets, The WB Television Network averaged a 2.7/4 (household)
with two hours of 7th Heaven, while UPN averaged a 2.4/4 with The Parkers
(two episodes), Girlfriends and Half &
