Call it the battle of the divas. The past two sweeps weeks have given us Susan Sarandon on Friends (5th), Madonna at the Grammys (3rd), and Judy Davis in part 1 of ABC’s Life With Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows (6th). But over at Fox, Barbra Streisand — Timeless (65th), which ousted Temptation Island for one night, proved a damsel in distress, losing 64 percent of the 18-to-49-year-old audience from the previous week’s TI. ABC also skewed elderly with the diva-heavy Liz Taylor telepic These Old Broads (35th). As for the new broads, cheers to Rhea Perlman and Mary Stuart Masterson, whose new CBS drama Kate Brasher (42nd) drew 1.4 million more viewers than Chuck Norris’ Walker, Texas Ranger has averaged in its Saturday slot all season.
