Ratings Race - 'The Forgotten' Finale More Remembered Than 'Three Rivers'

Fox (0.9/4, 3.13 million) owns Saturday night, and they have for more than two decades with the same lineup. If the other networks want to compete, they're going to have to get creative. But it looks like nobody cares about Saturdays anymore.

It's good news for fans of low-rated series, as the Saturday wasteland gives networks someplace to burn off the last episodes of failed shows. Tonight, two such shows ride off into the sunset as ABC (0.6/3, 2.78 million) bids farewell with back-to-back installments of 'the forgotten,' while CBS (0.5/2, 2.75 million) is probably thankful they're out of episodes of 'Three Rivers.'

Fox, meanwhile, just sticks with 'Cops' and 'America's Most Wanted,' and watches the viewers roll in. At this point, generations of fans know this lineup. Only NBC (0.7/3, 3.1 million) is competitive with the power of 'America's Got Talent' repeats and 'L&O:SVU,' though all are down on this holiday weekend.
