The annual March for Babies is now a 2-week long series of events with celebrities, sports stars and politicians all participating in the fight against preterm births. According to their website, “Preterm birth is the number one killer of newborns in the United States, and babies who survive often face lifelong health problems.”

This weekend, stars from all entertainment arenas came out to show their support and walk for the cause. Modern Family star Julie Bowen, Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell, Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas, Olympic gymnast Shannon Miller and Biggest Loser winner Ali Vincent all participated in walks in their communities on April 24. Actress Melissa Joan Hart, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith and sports legend Darryl Strawberry all walked on April 25.

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, November 25, 2009.

Airing new episodes on the night before Thanksgiving led to series-low ratings for programs like “Modern Family,” “Cougar Town,” “Eastwick” and “Glee.” The pending holiday had no negative impact on CBS’ “Criminal Minds, though,” which celebrated its 100th episode and helped give CBS easy Wednesday wins in most key measures.

Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 2.6 rating, beating NBC’s 2.4 rating and the 2.0 rating for FOX in the key demographic. ABC’s 1.7 rating was fourth, with The CW trailing with a 0.4 rating.

Overall, CBS averaged an estimated 11.03 million viewers to go with a 6.7 rating/12 share. NBC was a distant second with a 4.1/7, followed by FOX’s 3.3/6 and the 3.2/6 for ABC. The CW’s 0.8/1 was fifth.

NBC began the night in first with a 4.6/8 for a “The Biggest Loser: Where Are They Now” special, which also won the hour in the key demo with a 2.6 rating. CBS’ “The New Adventures of Old Christine” and “Gary Unmarried” had a 4.1/7 for second, with ABC’s “Modern Family” repeat and a new “The Middle” doing a 3.5/6 for third. FOX’s “So You Think You Can Dance” results episode was fourth with a 3.0/5. The CW aired the movie “Gracie” and finished fifth.

CBS moved into first at 9 p.m. with an 8.2/14 for “Criminal Minds,” which also won the hour with a 3.1 rating in the key demo. NBC’s “Biggest Loser” special was steady in second. ABC finished third with “Modern Family” and “Cougar Town” plummeting to a 3.7/6 overall and a 2.2 rating in the demo. Also proving the danger of airing new episodes on a holiday eve was “Glee,” which had a 3.5/6 overall and dropped to a 2.5 rating in the demo. The CW’s movie had a 0.8/1.
