THE RATINGS

HIT SINGLES

Holy hot tubs! ABC’s Bachelorette debut (10th) attracted a time-period-winning 17.4 million voyeurs, beating NBC’s The West Wing (22nd) by a whopping 79 percent in 18- to 49-year-olds. While the quasi-star-studded The Surreal Life (88th) brought a relatively large viewership of 5.2 million to The WB, ABC’s Celebrity Mole Hawaii (44th) lost out to Law & Order (6th). Arsenio Hall scored with CBS’ Star Search (24th, 25th), though the show lacked Survivor-size strength against NBC’s Thursday comedies. The debut of Fox’s Joe Millionaire (7th) attracted the largest crowd of any midseason entry, besting the premieres of two Friday dramas: NBC’s Mister Sterling (30th), which lured a better-than-Providence turnout of 12.2 million, and CBS’ Queens Supreme (66th), which drew only 8.1 million court buffs.
