Slow But Steady Wins the Total Tube Time Race

After last week's big unveiling, it's time for some routine maintenance. This week I update the top ten lists for Total Tube Time in the near right column. The end date is now Nov 6, 2005 instead of Aug 7, 2005.

What can happen in two months?


''Dateline NBC'' continues to slowly eat away ''60 Minutes'' lead. ''Dateline'' has a lower rating each week, but NBC always gives you quantity over quality with their popular newsmag.

''The Simpsons'' closes the gap with ''Friends'' and will pass it by the end of the season.

But the biggest shake-up is in the drama category. ''CSI'' remains the dominant force in weekly ratings and climbs three notches from #9 to #6 on the list for Total Tube Time. By the end of the TV season, ''CSI'' will be #4. ''Law & Order'' will soon rewrite history when it passes ''Murder, She Wrote'' for the #1 spot on the list.
