Prime-Time TV Rankings Without 4ER,' NBC Can't Keep Pace With CBS drew its biggest audience since early November. The half-dozen new series premiering last week mostly got off to so-so starts, meaning the real test will be how well they hold up in subsequent airings. With "ER" taking a five-week rest, NBC's Thursday night ratings dropped, while the new drama "Crisis Center," starring Kellie Martin, attracted 2.2 million fewer viewers for its second telecast than the show's premiere. ABC continues to struggle, essentially tying Fox last week in total viewers. The network's rating was off 20 compared to the same week a year ago. -BRIAN LOWRY FjBC got a glimpse of what life would be like 1 without "ER" and the results weren't pretty, as CBS topped the prime-time standings for the second consecutive week in results issued Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. CBS benefited from another record-high "Touched by an Angel" rating and solid numbers for the movie "To Dance With Olivia," starring Louis Gossett Jr. Shuffling the network's Monday comedy lineup also generated positive results: "Cybill" moved to 9 p.m. with "Murphy Brown" going on hiatus, and the Cybill Shepherd comedy delivered CBS' highest rating in that half-hour since September. "Cosby," with 18 million viewers, National Nielsen Viewership Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (March 3-9) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research. They are based on the average number of people who watched a program from start to finish. Nielsen estimates that there are 25 1 million potential U.S. viewers age 2 and older, viewership is listed here in minions. Net- Vtow- Pro nun work era 1. Seinfeld NBC 29.75 2. Friends NBC 25.84 3.
