Peacock reruns to Thursday win

Author:
Publish date:

NBC repeated itself all night and still won the night, although with its
usual double-digit finality.

A repeat of Friends led off the night with an 8.7 rating, 23 share among adults 18-49 in national Nielsen numbers. An ER rerun topped things off with an
7.9/22.

In between, The Weber Show (7.0/18), Will & Grace (8.3/20) and Just Shoot Me (7.8/19) all repeated themselves to fine ratings effect.

ABC challenged NBC for total viewers, with the mouse's standby Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? drawing 19.7
million viewers.

But the peacock kept the edge, averaging 13.4 million prime time viewers to the mouse's 12.2 million.
