ABC slips to an unfamiliar spot in the ratings: third place

BY DAVID BAUDER
AP Television Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- Riding the instant success of ``Survivor,'' CBS had a solid week in the prime-time television ratings and ABC learned how far it could sink when it has to pre-empt Regis Philbin.

With 18 million viewers, more people watched the strangers testing their survival skills on a rat-infested island last week than tuned in to any of the first three games of the NBA Finals, Nielsen Media Research said Tuesday.

``Survivor'' even beat ``Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'' in head-to-head competition on June 7.

ABC, the season's ratings leader, slipped to third place for the week, primarily because it devoted three nights of prime-time to the Stanley Cup hockey finals between Dallas and New Jersey. It was the network's worst week since December, before ``Millionaire'' joined the regular schedule.

By hockey's standards, the matchup did well: Thursday night's long, tense overtime struggle drew the highest household ratings for a Stanley Cup finals game in 20 years, according to ABC.

Still, Thursday's average audience for the hockey game was less than a quarter of what ABC could have expected from ``Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.''

Fox's highest-rated show of the week was its concert special with Britney Spears from Hawaii. Its effort at duplicating ABC's game show success with ``Chance of a Lifetime'' fell flat, however.

NBC had a respectable showing with its summer series, ``M.Y.O.B.,'' while ABC cancelled its poor-performing ``Clerks'' after two showings.

NBC averaged 10.66 million viewers in prime-time last week, narrowly edging CBS' 10.61 million viewers. CBS' ratings were slightly higher (7.6 rating, 14 share) than NBC's (7.5, 14), which indicates that more CBS viewers were watching alone.

ABC had 9.3 million viewers on average (6.3 rating, 11 share), Fox had 6.4 million viewers (4.3, 8), UPN had 3.7 million (2.4, 4 share), the WB had 2.4 million (1.7, 3) and Pax TV had 1.2 million (0.9, 2).

NBC's ``Nightly News'' dominated the evening news ratings race with 9.4 million viewers (7.0 rating, 16 share). ABC's ``World News Tonight'' had 8.1 million viewers (6.0, 14), and the ``CBS Evening News'' had 7.4 million viewers (5.8, 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 televisions tuned to a given show.

For the week of June 5-11, the top 10 shows, their networks and ratings were:

1. (3) ``Who Wants to be a Millionaire-Sunday,'' ABC, 16.3, 16.45 million homes.
2. (1) ``Who Wants to be a Millionaire-Tuesday,'' ABC, 15.8, 15.96 million homes.
