Returning Series Have a Tough Week A case of midseason blues quickly descended on the major networks after the February ratings sweeps ended Wednesday, as NBC regained first place in figures issued Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. Several series temporarily pulled from the lineup returned and were greeted with a collective yawn from viewers. ABC's acclaimed yet controversial drama "Nothing Sacred," for example, finished a weak fourth in its Saturday time slot, as did a tribute to the one-time king of Saturday night, "Love Boat" and "Fantasy Island" producer Aaron Spelling. CBS' "Cybill" and "Michael Hayes," ABC's "Hiller and Diller" and NBC's "Players" also landed with a dull thud in their comeback efforts. Specials, by contrast, performed well last week, with NBC lassoing a bigger-than-usual audience Wednesday thanks to a Garth Brooks concert and Fox again drawing strong numbers with its "Magic's Biggest Secrets Revealed" franchise, featuring the "Masked Magician." Buoyed by such fare as well as shows like "The X-Files" and "Ally McBeal," Fox has even crept ahead of ABC a fourth-place finisher four of the last five weeks for the season among adults age 18 to 49, the main category used to set advertising rates. NBC ranks first by that measure and CBS fourth. -BRIAN LOWRY National Nielsen Viewership Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (March 2-8) 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 254 million potential U.S. viewers age 2 and older.
