THE RATINGS

‘AMAZON’ QUEEN

Survivor’s title proved apt as the CBS series’ sixth-season ender (3rd) and reunion special (10th) dominated Sunday night. Although the episode ranked as the reality trailblazer’s lowest-rated finale ever, Jenna’s surprise victory outplayed NBC’s competing American Dreams (57th) and back-to-back episodes of Law & Order: Criminal Intent (20th and 23rd). Other nets failed to lure viewers away from the island with nostalgia trips: ABC’s showing of E.T. (66th) did nothing to help struggling lead-out Dragnet (69th), and there was little teen spirit for Shannen Doherty and Co. on Fox’s Beverly Hills, 90210: 10-Year High School Reunion (70th). Survivor, however, proved less potent in its regular Thursday slot (8th): The ouster of Jenna’s fellow femme fatale, Heidi, couldn’t hold its own against John Stamos’ ”spermtastic” guest appearance on NBC’s expanded Friends (6th).
