ZAP2IT has more details:
The conclusion of ABC's miniseries "The Path to 9/11" led ABC to a ratings win Monday. Numbers for the night are approximate, as a presidential address marking the fifth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks interrupted regular programming in much of the country.
ABC averaged a 7.4 rating/11 share for the night, finishing well ahead of CBS' 5.2/8. NBC was third at 4.2/7. FOX, 4.0/7, came in fourth, and The WB trailed with a 1.2/2.
The Alphabet also led among adults 18-49, scoring a 3.7 rating. FOX, 2.5, was second, with CBS not far behind at 2.3. NBC drew a 1.8 in the key ad demographic, while The WB managed only a 0.6.
The commercial-free "Path to 9/11" posted a 6.7/10 for ABC at 8 p.m. FOX finished second for the hour with "Prison Break," 5.5/8. A "Dateline" special was third for NBC, topping reruns of "How I Met Your Mother," 4.2/7, and "The New Adventures of Old Christine," 4.0/6, on CBS. The WB got a 1.1/2 from a "7th Heaven" repeat.
