>The CW station in Miami, WSFL, will carry the Miami-New York Jets Monday Night Football game locally in primetime tonight.  So the fast nationals for Gossip Girl and Hart of Dixie will be inflated Tuesday morning.  We will have to wait until later in the day to get a clear read on the two dramas in the official nationals.  Miami is #16 in market size, representing 1.4% of the country.

The game is being carried locally in New York on the MyNetworkTV station so there will be no ratings distortion by the game in the #1 market in the country.
