The Ratings

Treasure 'Islands'

The tribe has spoken: ''Survivor'' is still a hit. The reality sensation's new Pearl Islands edition (1st) teamed up with a 90-minute ''CSI'' repeat (5th) to help CBS outplay NBC's Must See reruns on Thursday. ABC settled for third that night with unthreatening numbers for the debut of the terrorism drama ''Threat Matrix'' (43rd) and more-promising results for the season premiere of ''Extreme Makeover'' (32nd). While the Emmys (3rd) boosted Fox on Sunday night, the rotating-host kudocast drew its second-smallest audience in 13 years. On Monday, the season premiere of The WB's family-drama block of ''7th Heaven'' (38th) and ''Everwood'' (60th) pulled in 8.1 million and 5.9 million viewers, respectively. Fox wasn't so lucky with its Friday premieres: ''Wanda at Large'' (82nd) started small in its new time slot, while Luis Guzman served up weak ratings with the debut of ''Luis'' (85th).
