The Fox exposure shows got very good ratings but did not live up to last years numbers. Overall they were number one for the two hour slot with an 11.0/17. The rerun averaged a 10.0/16 which was down from the 15.0/22 it averaged last November. Breaking the Code 2 averaged a 12.0/18. The interesting statistic is that it finished third for the night among the 18-49 age group and last years advertisers were, on the most part, not a part of this special.(3/6)
