ABC won the week in total viewers, boosted by three outings of the Regis Philbin-hosted game show. But "The Wayne Brady Show," a comedy-variety series starring improv performer Brady, lost more than 2 million viewers in its second week out. Last week, in its premiere, "The Wayne Brady Show" drew 11 million viewers and finished in the top 10. Another summer tryout, Fox's "Murder in a Small Town X," continued to slide, seeing its audience dwindle to under 4 million viewers. Meanwhile, NBC extended its streak as the most popular network among 18-to-49-year-old viewers to 18 consecutive weeks. On the cable front, back-to-back episodes of the drama "Six Feel Under" scored big for HBO, which aired the episodes as a season-finale package, drawing an average 6.9 million viewers, tops among cable broadcasts for the week. IIBO's hit "The Sopranos" drew an average 5.2 million viewers for its first season finale, in 1999.

Most of it is a mere two chords, played with merry-go-round monotony. It was never released as a single, nor did it get a promotional push courtesy of an MTV-ready video. But somehow, "Jane Says" just won't die. The song, by California's pre-grunge pioneers Jane's Addiction, pops up incessantly on radio stations nationwide. It's a regular on modern-rock stations, which means it has the youth cachet to hang with the latest in alternative music, like Staind or Tool. It's spun more than 100 times weekly on the nation's album-rock stations, mixing and mingling with elder-statesmen acts such as F.ric Clapton and ZZ Top. It was broadcast more than 12,000 times in the first half of 2001, according to Mediabase, a company that monitors radio airplay. "We play it to death," says Oedipus, the singly named program director of Boston's VVBCN. "It's in the pantheon of great rock songs. It has that intangible, undefinable magic about it that continues to make it compelling, which is what all great songs have." How did "Jane Says" wedge its way into the "Stairway to Heaven" hall of fame? It's a mystery that many have contemplated. Doens of great songs have since been loosed upon the airwaves, so why are we stuck on a little melody about a woman, her drug habit and an abusive boyfriend named Sergio? Nobody is wishy-washy about "Jane Says." Especially not Perry Farrell, lead singer of the now-defunct Jane's Addiction, who penned the lyrics. "I hear it occasionally on KROQ, and it's like a friend saying hello," Farrell says. "It really makes me smile. I feel like the song touches people, and it's nice to know you've accomplished something like that." Farrell explains that there was an actual Jane with an actual heroin habit and an abusive boyfriend named Sergio who lived with Farrell and nearly a dozen others in a group house in Hollywood in the early '80s. Yes, she talked endlessly about scrimping for a jaunt to Europe ("Jane says, 'I'm going away to Spain When I get my money saved' "), and yes, this tempestuous muse took an occasional swipe at a housemate, but she never seemed to connect ("She gets mad and starts to cry Takes a swing but she can't hit"), Farrell has lost touch with Jane, but it turns out finding her isn't all that hard. It took only a few phone calls to determine that she's still living in California, and though she's quoted in the song predicting she was "going to kick tomorrow," . r niniiinr 'i" '"hi"1-- naaaiin i ..a.' . - , M- it took a little longer. Today, however, she's proud to say she's clean. "The story of Jane has a happy ending," says Jane Bainter. In 1987, Jane's Addiction released a self-tilled debut album, recorded at LA.'s Roxy club, on the Triple X label. It contained a version of "Jane Says" that provoked a major-label bidding war, eventually won by Warner Bros. "Nothing's Shocking" was released the following year. The album's studio version of "Jane Says" was instantly ubiquitous. The band broke up in 1991, though it reunites for the occasional tour and has produced yet another live version of "Jane Says," this time adding steel drums. Today, the tune is associated with grunge, a genre that has faded in sales but contributed a handful of radio staples. Alternative-rock stations love "classic grunge" songs because they lure older listeners who heard them the first time around, without losing teenagers eager for the new single by Tool. Bainter, now 38, appreciates how beloved her namesake melody has become. A Mercurial Presence "I've heard about students getting writing assignments in class to write about 'Jane Says,' " Bainter says. "Generally, I haven't told many people that I'm that Jane. It's a little awkward. It's a hard life being an addict, and it feels now like the song is about another person. It's not something I've really spoken about much." Bainter didn't plan on becoming one of pop's most sung-about women when she moved to L.A. in the mid-1980s. The Arizona native graduated from Smith College and moved into a house, crammed with nearly a dozen musicians, on Wilton Place, among them Farrell and bassist Eric Avery, who would form their band with guitarist Dave Navarro and drummer Stephen Perkins. Bainter was the house's most mercurial presence; her habit brought some unsavory characters around, and a former boyfriend of LORI SHEPLER Los Angeles Timet Songwriter Perry Farrell says, "1 feel like the song touches people hers was living under the same roof, which made the situation more volatile. When things went wrong at tlif house, the mayhem was often blamed on "Jane's addiction," se when Farrell needed a name for hit band, there was a phrase readyf-made. "They jumped into my room one day and said, 'We're go ing to name it Jane's Addiction!',? Bainter recalls. "I thought it was sort of a lackluster name. I didn't take it as a tribute at all." Nor did her parents. Bainter photo appeared on the insert ol the vinyl version of the first alburrj and on thousands of posters that appeared worldwide. "It was very hard for my family says Bainter, who was then leading a double life of sorts: By day, she'd put on a sensible suit to work at a management consulting firm. A night, she'd put on a wig and wadf into L.A.'s music subculture. And she was nearly always high. Contrary to popular belief, she says, she never sold her body for sex. "A lot of people hear the song and assume it's about a prostitute, It's not. If you could clear that, I'd appreciate it." Soon after Jane's Addiction caught on, Bainter and the band drifted apart. She worked for a while at Atlantic Records, then goj a job as a student advisor for enter tainment courses taught in an extension program at UCIA C She's been off drugs for eight years, she says, and is grateful to her parents for sticking by her through some harrowing ordeals! She's divorced and looking for '& new job. "Oh, and I did get to Spain, by the way," she says. . Farrell, meanwhile, is heading out on a reunion tour with Jane'J Addiction this fall. The band will be playing "Jane Says," whicl oddly enough, is a number Jane'i Addiction seldom offered up live a the peak of its popularity. "I had a hard time giving away things that I thought were precioui to me, and that's why we nevcf turned it into a single, or made a video," he says. "We'd only play it at shows thai felt really intimate and really, memorable. I almost keep th;tt one, like a jewel."
