The Fox network Systems Inc. is not without its primetime problems, but it is nothing a little extra "American Idol" cannot solve. Three hours of the music talent competition, which is delivering a surprisingly bigger and broader audience in its third season, propelled Fox Network Systems Inc., to victory in adults 18-49 and younger demos, while Columbia Broadcasting System Inc., (CBS) remained on top in total viewers. In adults 18-49, Fox's 4.4 rating/12 share topped National Broadcasting Co. Inc., CBS and the American Broadcasting Company. It also led the way in adults 18-34 and teens.
