`Millionaire' pays dividends: ABC moves up

ASSOCIATED PRESS

18-Nov-1999 Thursday

ABC is feeling like a million bucks, with "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" helping to carry the network to a first-place prime-time win last week.

Airing nightly during November "sweeps," the hit quiz show claimed seven of the top 16 slots for the week, according to Nielsen Media Research figures released Tuesday. Its Sunday edition won third place, behind NBC's top-ranked "ER" and ABC's "Monday Night Football."

Fox didn't fare so well with its quiz clone, "Greed," whose second weekly airing was Thursday. In the first half-hour -- which faced that night's "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" -- "Greed" ranked No. 80, with a 5.9 rating and 9 share. During its second half-hour, it vaulted to No. 40 (8.7 rating and 13 share).

In household ratings for the week, ABC won with a 10.4 rating and 17 share, followed by NBC (9.1 rating and 15 share), CBS (8.8 and 14) and Fox (6.5 and 10).

Among the second tier of networks, the WB's 3.1 rating and 5 share edged newly competitive UPN (2.7 rating and 4 share) and Pax TV (0.7 and 1).

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.

NBC's "Nightly News" won the evening-news ratings race with an 8.3 rating and 16 share, followed by ABC's "World News Tonight" (7.9 rating and 16 share) and "CBS Evening News" (7.0 and 14).
