NBC: JUNE SWOON?

Posted on

The heat NBC picked up from its May sweeps victory seems to be dissipating rapidly. Though its Hurricane Andrew movie, Triumph Over Disaster, topped the ratings for May 24-30 (unavailable until this week due to Me-morial Day), the network’s World Trade Center bombing movie, Without Warning, imploded in 37th place. And while the June 6 premiere of NBC’s South Beach (28th) beat CBS’ Tony awards telecast (45th), it trailed ABC’s Police Academy 6: City Under Siege (5th). Meanwhile, another NBC summer series, the private-eye spoof Black Tie Affair, finished an undistinguished 76th. VIEWERS* TOP TEN 5/24-5/30 LAST WEEK
