CBS gives ABC a run for its money, ratings

ASSOCIATED PRESS

11-Nov-1999 Thursday

ABC jumped off to a strong start in the November TV ratings "sweeps" with the musical "Annie" and a triumphant return for the game show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire."

Both shows were winners Sunday in an unusually competitive night for network TV. The 26 million viewers for "Annie" gave it the largest audience of any Disney movie since "Cinderella" two years ago.

"Millionaire" drew just under 26 million viewers, its biggest audience ever, in the first of a 15-night run.

In household ratings, CBS won the week with a 9.1 rating and 15 share. NBC had an 8.9 rating and 14 share, ABC had an 8.7 rating and 14 share and Fox had a 6.4 rating and 10 share.

But ABC actually had more people watching, during an average prime-time hour, than any other network -- an indication that families gathered together to watch "Annie" and "Millionaire." ABC also narrowly edged NBC among 18-to-49-year-old viewers, the demographic most sought by
advertisers.

"Millionaire" beat Fox's season premiere of "The X-Files" in the ratings, as well as NBC's "The Magical Legend of the Leprechauns" and CBS' "Shake, Rattle and Roll."

Proving that sex sells, Fox's "Ally McBeal" drew its largest audience ever for an episode that featured Calista Flockhart and Lucy Liu's passionate kiss and dance floor grope, as well as Portia de Rossi's spanking with a hairbrush.

As is typical, NBC's "ER" was the week's most-watched show, Nielsen Media Research said.

Among the second tier of networks, the WB's 2.9 rating and 4 share narrowly edged newly competitive UPN's 2.7 rating and 4 share. Pax TV had a 0.8 rating and 1 share.

NBC's "Nightly News" won the evening news ratings race with an 8.4 rating and 17 share. ABC's "World News Tonight" had a 7.9 rating and 16 share, while the "CBS Evening News" had a 7.3 rating and 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 TVs tuned to a given show.
