Amid game and reality shows, Jesus Christ is a ratings-grabber

BY DAVID BAUDER
AP Television Writer

NEW YORK (AP) -- Amid the hype about ``Survivor'' and other reality shows, it was Jesus Christ who quietly proved a formidable presence in the television ratings last week.

Peter Jennings' news special, ``The Search for Jesus,'' was the third most-watched prime-time television program last week.

Only CBS' ``Survivor,'' which drew an audience of just under 24 million in its fifth week on the air, and a repeat episode of ``Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'' drew larger audiences than ``The Search for Jesus.''

It drew more viewers than any other Jennings special in seven years and proved somewhat of a surprise to ABC, which postponed it for a week because the network was concerned the show would compete against the NBA Finals.

ABC also had to be heartened by the continued strength of ``Millionaire.'' Each edition of the game show placed in Nielsen Media Research's top 10 programs for the week, even though they were all repeats.

For the week, ABC won with an average of 10 million viewers in prime-time (6.9 rating, 13 share). CBS had 9.3 million viewers (6.5, 12), NBC had 8.1 million viewers (5.9, 11) and Fox had 5.8 million (3.9, 7). UPN had 3 million viewers (2.1, 4), the WB had 2.4 million viewers (1.8, 3) and Pax TV had 1.1 million (0.8, 2)

NBC's ``Nightly News'' won the evening news ratings race with 9.2 million viewers (7.0 rating, 16 share). ABC's ``World News Tonight'' had 7.9 million viewers (6.2, 14), while the ``CBS Evening News'' had 7.7 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 26 to July 2, the shows, their networks and ratings were:
