THE NIELSENS

NBC trots out the big guns, blasts rivals

ASSOCIATED PRESS

28-Oct-1999 Thursday

With the opening of the World Series, a dramatic conclusion to a tense
baseball playoff and, of course, "ER," NBC crushed its competition in last
week's TV ratings.

NBC did even better than its previous week, when the network registered its
best Nielsen Media Research ratings since June 1998. On average, NBC had
more than 4 million more prime-time viewers last week than second-place
CBS.

Meanwhile, bad news continued for Fox and the networks began bailing out in
earnest from the failed shows of the fall.

Three NBC baseball games finished among the week's 10 most popular
programs. The final game of the Mets-Braves playoff series actually
outrated the first two games of the World Series, although slightly more
people watched the series opening games. Overall, World Series ratings are
up from last year.

"ER" was the week's most popular show, continuing Alan Alda's
guest-starring role.

NBC's strength on Thursdays has lain waste to competitors. ABC has
temporarily yanked the drama "Wasteland" from its schedule. Fox's
critically-praised "Action" is a thorough disaster, losing in the ratings
last week to UPN's "WWF Smackdown!"

Fox has canceled its entire Friday night lineup, "Harsh Realm" and "Ryan
Caulfield: Year One," after they finished 100 and 108 in last week's
ratings.

Except for baseball, only "The Simpsons" on Fox last week rated among the
week's top 50 programs. The network's average prime-time viewership of 8.6
million people this fall is nearly 2 million less than last year at the
same time.

CBS has axed its Wednesday night comedy, "Work With Me," which finished in
68th place last week.
