By Reality TV World staff, 07/02/2002 

NBC’s “Dog Eat Dog” continued to make the case last night that it could be the biggest reality hit of the summer, scoring its highest adult 18-49 rating to date and beating its closest time-period pursuer by a commanding 42 percent margin among adults 18-49. That keyed another dominant NBC Monday win among adults 18-49, marking the 12th time in 13 weeks NBC has taken the night in the key 18-49 demographic.

From 9:30-10 p.m. ET, “Dog” buried CBS’ “Becker,” winning by a 70 percent margin among adults 18-49 (5.1/14 vs. 3.0/8) and nearly tripling “Becker” among adults 18-34 (5.4/17 vs. 1.9/6).
