During the second half-hour, 'Survivor II' had a rating of 19.8 and a 28 share. The last 10 minutes of 'Friends' increased to a 17.4 rating and 24 share, and a 20-minute 'Saturday Night Live' special had a 13.7 rating and 19 share.
The overnight ratings measure viewership in 49 major media markets representing two-thirds of the nation's 102.2 million television households. One ratings point equals 675,000 homes, while the share is the percentage of in-use televisions tuned to a given show.
More precise ratings numbers were due later Friday.
