Lettie stands up to Sopranos


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.
