ENTERTAINMENT : CBS Ranked 2nd in Nielsen Ratings
A high-rated NCAA championship basketball game helped CBS come in second in last week’s Nielsens, according to figures released today, but didn’t budge NBC from No. 1, even though ABC’s “Roseanne” was the top-rated show of the week.
Last year, the NCAA championship game was enough to give CBS a first for the week. This year, the game had a somewhat lower rating, but was still in the top 10.
According to the A. C. Nielsen Co., the top-rated shows of the week were: “Roseanne” ABC, “The Cosby Show” NBC, “Cheers” NBC, “A Different World” NBC, “60 Minutes” CBS, “NCAA Championship--Michigan vs. Seton Hall” CBS, “Golden Girls” NBC, “Empty Nest” NBC, “L.A. Law” NBC and “Murder, She Wrote” CBS.
