CBS claims ratings crown for the week; `Survivor' still on top

BY FRAZIER MOORE
AP Television Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- Summer reality series ``Survivor'' and ``Big Brother'' helped CBS squeak into the ratings top spot last week, according to Nielsen Media Research figures released Tuesday.

``Survivor,'' the week's top-rated show, was seen by 28.7 million viewers. The live Wednesday edition of ``Big Brother'' ranked fifth with 17.0 million viewers.

The top 10 parsed out largely as it has for much of the summer: CBS' reality shows plus ABC's ``Who Wants to be a Millionaire'' (whose Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday editions ranked second through fourth), plus three newsmagazines and two scripted series: ABC's ``The Practice'' and CBS' ``Everybody Loves Raymond.''

Overall in prime time, CBS led the week with an average of 8.98 million viewers (a 6.3 rating and an 11 share), followed close behind by ABC with 8.91 million viewers (6.1 household rating, 11 share).

In third place, NBC had 7.94 million viewers (5.6 rating, 10 share).

Fox had 6.37 million viewers (4.2 rating, 8 share). UPN had 3.57 million viewers (2.2, 4), the WB had 2.35 million viewers (1.6, 3), and Pax TV had 1.38 million viewers (1.1, 2).

In the evening news race, NBC's ``Nightly News'' won with 9.65 million viewers (7.1 household rating, 16 share). ABC's ``World News Tonight'' had 8.20 million viewers (6.1 rating, 14 share), while ``The CBS Evening News'' had 7.56 million viewers (5.8 rating, 13 share).

Prime-time ratings compiled by Nielsen Media Research for Aug. 14-20. Top 20 listings include the week's ranking, with rating for the week and season-to-date rankings in parentheses.

An ``X'' in parentheses denotes a one-time-only presentation. The rating is the percentage of the nation's estimated 100.8 million TV homes. Each ratings point represents 1,008,000 households.
