Abstract:
The first part of ABC's "Arabian Nights" miniseries had about a million more viewers Sunday than CBS' competing movie on John Denver. NBC's airing of "The ***'70s" proved far less popular than last year's miniseries based on the 1960s, finishing third behind the ABC and CBS movies.

For the week, ABC and NBC had identical 8.9 ratings and 15 audience shares. NBC had a slightly higher number of households tuned in, but ABC's average prime-time viewership of 13.2 million beat NBC's 12.4 million.

CBS had an average of 11 million viewers (7.7 rating, 13 share), Fox had 8 million viewers (5.4 rating, 9 share), UPN had 4 million viewers (2.7, 5), the WB had 3.4 million (2.6, 4) and Pax TV had 1.2 million (0.9, 1).

Regis Philbin beat Mike Wallace in the first head-to-head battle between "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and "60 Minutes."

Meanwhile, ABC and NBC finished in a dead heat for last week's prime-time Nielsen Media Research ratings crown, for a period that encompassed the first four days of the important May ratings sweeps.

ABC aired the indefatigable "Millionaire" Sunday at 7 p.m. opposite the long-running CBS newsmagazine. The "Millionaire" audience of 19.2 million was well below its season average of 28 million. But "60 Minutes" had only 11.7 million viewers, a sharp drop from its season average of more than 17 million.

The first part of ABC's "Arabian Nights" miniseries had about a million more viewers Sunday than CBS' competing movie on John Denver. NBC's airing of "The ***'70s" proved far less popular than last year's miniseries based on the 1960s, finishing third behind the ABC and CBS movies.

NBC challenged ABC's dominance based on its strong Thursday night lineup, particularly the top-rated "ER" and "Friends," where actor Bruce Willis began a brief guest stint.

For the week, ABC and NBC had identical 8.9 ratings and 15 audience shares. NBC had a slightly higher number of households tuned in, but ABC's average prime-time viewership of 13.2 million beat NBC's 12.4 million.

CBS had an average of 11 million viewers (7.7 rating, 13 share), Fox had 8 million viewers (5.4 rating, 9 share), UPN had 4 million viewers (2.7, 5), the WB had 3.4 million (2.6, 4) and Pax TV had 1.2 million (0.9, 1).

ABC's "World News Tonight" drew 9.5 million viewers last week (7.2 rating, 16 share). NBC's "Nightly News" had 9.3 million viewers (7.2, 16) and the "CBS Evening News" had 7.7 million viewers (6, 13).

A rating point represents 1,008,000 households, or 1 percent of the nation's estimated 100.8 million TV homes. The share is the percentage of in-use TVs tuned to a given show.
