The Ratings

The good news for Fox is that 14.3 million folks made time for the premiere of Wanda at Large (10th). The irreverent sitcom held on to 75 percent of its American Idol lead-in and was the most watched new show of the week. The bad news for Fox: Viewers didn’t dig the debut of The Pitts (52nd), which dropped off sharply from Malcolm in the Middle (26th). The WB had its ups and downs as well: Frat-tastic prankster Jamie Kennedy saw his hidden-camera show, JKX: The Jamie Kennedy Experiment (93rd), hit a series high against a repeat of Will & Grace (15th), while audiences did not get a kick out of the net’s new martial-arts drama, Black Sash (91st), which fumbled its Charmed lead-in (85th). Friday night found people eager to join NBC’s search for America’s Most Talented Kid (22nd). ABC, however, showed no such talent for attracting audiences with the launch of its Daniel Stern comedy, Regular Joe (78th).
