THE NIELSENS

Touchdown! ABC scores in ratings game

ASSOCIATED PRESS

03-Feb-2000 Thursday

A super week gave ABC bragging rights as the season's most-watched
television network.

ABC crushed its rivals last week behind Sunday's close Super Bowl game
between the St. Louis Rams and Tennessee Titans and another record-setting
performance by "Who Wants To Be a Millionaire."

ABC's Super Bowl telecast was up 7 percent in ratings over the 1999 game,
according to Nielsen Media Research. ABC had worried that a game featuring
two relatively small media markets would show ratings weakness.

Besides the Super Bowl coverage, the week's three most-watched programs
were all showings of "Millionaire." The game show's Tuesday audience of
35.3 million was its largest yet.

With the Academy Awards ahead on ABC and "Millionaire" showing no signs of
weakening, ABC is on target for its first ratings season championship since
1994-95.

"I really think it will be pretty difficult for another network to make up
that deficit," said Larry Hyams, chief researcher for ABC.

For the season, ABC has averaged 13.7 million prime-time viewers. CBS has
12.9 million viewers, and NBC has 12.8 million.

Last year, ABC finished third behind CBS and NBC in household ratings. It
has won the season ratings race only four other times: three times in the
late 1970s and in 1994-95.

For the week, ABC averaged 27.6 million prime-time viewers (15.6 rating, 25
share), followed by CBS, which had 11 million viewers (7.6 rating, 12
share), NBC's 10.5 million viewers (7.4, 12), Fox's 7.9 million viewers
(5.3, 8), the WB's 4.1 million viewers (2.9, 4), UPN's 4.1 million viewers
(2.8, 4) and Pax TV 's 1.1 million viewers (0.8, 1).

ABC's "World News Tonight" led the evening news competition with 12.6
million viewers (9.0 rating, 17 share). NBC's "Nightly News" had 12.4
million viewers (9.2 rating, 17 share) and the "CBS Evening News" had 10.2
million viewers (7.5 rating, 14 share).

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.
