Cliffhanger a miracle drug for `ER' ratings

ASSOCIATED PRESS

17-Feb-2000 Thursday

`ER" fans tuned into NBC's hospital drama last week to follow the fates of
two favorite characters, enabling the show to reclaim the top spot from
"Who Wants to Be a Millionaire."

"ER" ended its ratings sweeps-month episode in a cliffhanger after the
characters portrayed by Noah Wyle and Kellie Martin were stabbed and left
clinging to life. Since Martin has announced that she's leaving the series,
it's wise not to place bets on her survival.

The episode drew 31 million viewers, well above the "ER" season average of
24 million.

Not that there's anything wrong with "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire," which
led ABC to another weekly win. The game show kept humming along, drawing
more than 30 million viewers twice last week and nearly 28 million a third
time.

CBS' "60 Minutes" had its best ratings of the year, after it reran a
profile of "Peanuts" creator Charles Schulz on Sunday night, less than 24
hours after he died.

Two movies performed well last week: ABC's "Mary and Rhoda" reunion drew 17
million viewers, and CBS' re-enactment of Thomas Jefferson's romance with
Sally Hemings had 19 million watchers.

ABC's "The Practice" continued the ratings momentum it generated with its
post-Super Bowl episode. The news, though, wasn't as good for another
long-running ABC drama, "NYPD Blue," which for the first time lost in its
time slot to CBS' "Judging Amy."

For the week, ABC had 14.9 million viewers (9.9 rating, 16 share). NBC was
second with 13.5 million viewers (9.3 rating, 15 share), and beat ABC among
18-to-49-year-olds. CBS had 12.9 million (8.9, 14), Fox had 9.7 million
(6.4, 10), UPN had 4.3 million (2.9, 5), the WB had 3.9 million (2.8, 4),
and Pax TV had 1 million (0.8, 1).

NBC's "Nightly News" led the evening news competition with 11.2 million
viewers (8.3 rating, 16 share), ABC's "World News Tonight" had 10.9 million
viewers (8.0, 16) and the "CBS Evening News" had 9.8 million viewers (7.2,
14).

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 televisions tuned to a given show.
