Lettie stands up to Sopranos

Publish date:

Mary Tyler Moore and Burt Reynolds proved Sunday night that they could compete
with Tony Soprano.

Moore and Reynolds headlined Turner Network Television's latest original movie, Miss Lettie &
, which pulled in a 4.7 overnight rating for its Dec. 8 premiere against
stiff competition from The Sopranos' season finale on Home Box Office. (Sopranos
ratings will be available Tuesday).

Miss Lettie & Me, TNT's second project co-produced with Johnson &
Johnson, performed particularly well in Southern markets like Memphis, Tenn.,
Atlanta and West Palm Beach, Fla.

Also Sunday night, TBS Superstation earned a solid 3.5 rating for a prime
time play of The Mummy.
