Ratings For 'Race' Premiere Come Up Less Than "Amazing"


By Reality TV World staff, 09/07/2001 

According to E! Online, 'The Amazing Race' couldn't do much damage to a new episode of NBC's summer hit 'Fear Factor.' Both shows averaged about 11.8 million viewers apiece, according to preliminary numbers.

An hour earlier, NBC's new series 'Lost,' which drops teams into the middle of nowhere as they try to make their way back to the Statue of Liberty, scored 9.3 million viewers. 'Lost' snagged a demographic victory among adults 18-34, but overall, the series couldn't top a special Wednesday 8 p.m. edition of CBS' surprise late-summer comeback hit 'Big Brother 2,' which averaged 10.8 million viewers.

Both networks were in heavy spin mode Thursday morning. NBC sniffed that it never really had high expectations for 'Lost,' while CBS said its reality block marked a vast improvement over its premiere of the CBS Wednesday Movie last season.
