'Trace' Invader

CBS' Without a Trace (4th) continued to make its mark in summer reruns, burying a competing repeat of ER (72nd) on NBC -- and, with the help of powerful lead-in CSI (1st), heading into the fall with a sizable following. Reruns dominated the top spots as audiences chose Law & Order (5th) on NBC, According to Jim (16th) on ABC, and Everybody Loves Raymond (6th) on CBS over new episodes of their reality time-slot competitors -- CBS' Big Brother 4 (12th), Fox's Paradise Hotel (33rd), and NBC's For Love or Money 2 (16th). The Peacock's Thursday reality experiment, a half-hour edition of sister channel Bravo's Queer Eye for the Straight Guy (39th), attracted 6.9 million curious viewers, but the finale of NBC's Fame (63rd) failed to fly despite starting the season near the top of the charts.
