Survivor Clobbers Friends/SNL Combo For Second Week


By Reality TV World staff, 02/11/2001 

The new CBS "Survivor" series knocked NBC's hour of "Friends" and "Saturday Night Live" from atop the Thursday night ratings pole for the second straight week, scoring victories in total viewers and the key 18-to-49-year-old audience segment.

This week, "Survivor" clobbered the hourlong block of a 40-minute "Friends" and 20-minute weeknight edition of "SNL," averaging 29 million viewers to 20.7 million for "Friends" and "SNL," according to figures released Friday by Nielsen Media Research.



The race was tighter among viewers aged 18 to 49, with CBS scoring a 12.1 rating in the 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. block to NBC's 10.6. Each rating point equals 1.24 million viewers. NBC took consolation in its narrow victory over "Survivor" among 18- to 49-year-olds during the 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. period when the bulk of its "Friends" episode aired. NBC won that block narrowly with a 11.2 rating to CBS' 11.1.
