In Finder, if the column is wide, it's formatted as "Thursday September 23, 2010 9:11 AM", and then shrinks to shorter forms as the column is resized:
Resizing a column in Finder:
"Thursday September 23, 2010 9:11 AM"
"September 23, 2010 9:11 AM"
"Sep 23, 2010 9:11 AM"
"9/23/10 9:11 AM"
This would reduce cases of wrapping of this text into a two-line header, which is more likely in beta 19 now that the format by default is much longer.
I don't know if this is possible, but it would be great if you could make an enhancement ticket in trac. http://trac.adium.im/wiki/RequestingFeatures
