WWE FRIDAY NIGHT SMACKDOWN (MNT)2.1/41.2/41.3/43.52

There was some controversy at the time regarding the ratings for "One Tree Hill" vs. "Gossip Girl" as they aired on the same night and lead-out "Hill" was up 0.5 in the demo over "Girl." Due to this, I've decided to provide the 15-min breakdowns for the two programs.
