Fox , CBS split Sunday night

Fox won adults 18 through 49 and 18 through 34 Sunday night with its regular
lineup of Futurama, King of the Hill, The Simpsons, Oliver

well. It won its time period among adults 18 through 49 and 18 through 34 and
was second among adults 25 through 54 behind the second half of American

finishing third (ahead of ABC) across most of the key categories but second
among adults 18 through 34.
