Touched grounded10/15/2000 08:00:00 PM Eastern
CBS' season premiere of drama Touched by an Angel was pushed back a week because of a late-running NFL game on Sunday. The game between the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders ran an hour longer than expected, and CBS executives opted to pull Touched by an Angel rather than 60 Minutes.Touched was scheduled to get its new season under way Sunday, Oct. 15, football permitting.
CBS still managed to post its usually strong Sunday-night ratings, winning the night with 60 Minutes and its original movie, Personally Yours.
CBS won Sunday night in total viewers (16.3 million) and a 5.2 rating/13 share in adults 18-49. ABC's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? was the night's most-watched show, averaging 20.2 million viewers at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
