ET_F_11_F11_LA_1_04-10-02_we_1_CMYK 2002:04:09:14:34:18 LOSANGELESTIMESWEDNESDAY,APRIL10,2002 F11 TODAY ON TV I t was another photo finish for CBS and NBC in the ratings race last week, with an assist from the NCAA basketball tournament helping the former score its second consecutive weekly win, based on viewing estimates issued Tuesdayby Nielsen Media Research. NBC’s “ER” topped the standings for the first time since December and only the sixth time since the TV season began in September. The network also received a boost Sunday by repeating “50 Years of NBC Late Night”—which drew a significantly bigger audience than its initial telecast on Sept. 23—while CBS belted out solid ratings with its Celine Dion special. Midseason replacement series, meanwhile, for the most part continue to struggle. In fact, three had their runs brought to a premature end based on last week’s results, with Fox pulling “The American Embassy” and ABC cutting back on its plans for “Wednesday 9:30 (8:30 Central)” and the Sally Field drama “The Court.” ABC’s “The Bachelor” has shown some promise, but the network remains a distant third, with “The Practice” as its only show to crack the top 20 last week. Viewing of the NCAA basketball championship game essentially mirrored results from a year ago. CBS research also estimates that nearly 137 million people watched at least a few minutes of its coverage over the tournament’s three weeks. Brian Lowry Basketball Leads CBS to Victory National Nielsen Viewership Here are the rankings for national prime- time network television last week (April 1-7) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research. They are based on the average num- ber of people who watched a program from start to finish. Nielsen estimates there are 260 million potential viewers in the U.S. age 2and older. Viewership is listed in millions.

The term is used advisedly, since Donahue, at 66, is hardly a poster child for the MTV or WB network crowd. Fortunately, news is one of the few areas somewhat sheltered from the media world’s well-practiced ageism, a venue where many leading anchors are eligible to collect Social Security and “60 Minutes” correspondent Mike Wallace, 84, can talk about cutting back on his workload instead of reminiscing about his retirement. By contrast, virtually the rest of the entertainment landscape is caught in a nonstop, demographically driven search for the fountain of youth, to the point where having bug-eating or surviving immunity challenges on your résumé is more attractive than “MASH” or “All in the Family.” So it is that “Survivor’s” Colleen Haskell landed a co-starring part in the film “The Animal,” while the program’s first winner, Richard Hatch, became a correspondent for “Entertainment Tonight.” “Survivor: The Australian Outback’s” Alicia Calloway, meanwhile, has parlayed her physique, chiseled by her work as a personal trainer, into a series of on-air roles—hosting “Antarctica: A Voyage to the Final Frontier” for the Outdoor Life Network (yes, that’s a real channel on your digital cable tier somewhere) and being hired as the health-and-fitness correspondent for WNYW, the local Fox station in New York, beginning this month. Sharon Chang, an agent at IMG, which represents the likes of Tiger Woods and John Madden, was undaunted about taking Calloway on as a client even though the clock on a “Survivor” contestant’s media viability begins ticking almost as soon as he or she gets voted off the show. “Everybody was just saying you’ve got to capitalize on it very, very quickly,” said Chang. “But I had more of a long-term vision for her.” Granted, transplanting people who gain fame in one arena into TV is hardly new, though one can argue the bar on who qualifies has been lowered even from the day when athletes like Don Meredith and O.J. Simpson proved that acting is harder than it looks. At the same time, cable’s appetite for low-cost original programming has brought to life all sorts of oddities built around more traditional celebrities, apparently inspired by the notion that a half- hour of Bill Murray doing just about anything is good enough to intrigue some viewers. As a result, you get “The Sweet Spot,” a new Comedy Central series that features Murray playing golf with his three brothers. The show has a certain charm if you are, say, a junior in college under the influence of six or seven beers, but its approach is so offbeat as to make you wonder if the Murrays could have pitched anything that the channel wouldn’t have bought. Still, Comedy Central General Manager Bill Hilarysaid that’s the point—that the last thing TV needs is another conventional sitcom built around a marquee film actor, though he was too polite to mention since-departed vehicles for Geena Davis, Bette Midler and others to make his case. “If we’re going to have a big star, like Bill Murray, we want to do something that no one else would do,” Hilary said. “Ours is a harsh, discerning audience. That 24-to-34-year-old audience doesn’t wait around. You can arrest them for 30 seconds, but you can’t keep them. ...If they don’t have it their way, they won’t be back again.” Showcasing celebrities in unconventional settings is theoreti- cally a way to get that younger audience’s attention, at least for a while. So MTV gives us Ozzy Os- bourneas a mumbling real-life sitcom dad; singer Chris Isaakplays a version of himself in his eponymous Showtime comedy; and “Seinfeld” co-creator Larry David does the same in HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm”—notably, a modest success for the pay channel despite drawing a much smaller audience than the sitcoms crafted for “Seinfeld” co-stars Michael Richard, Jason Alexander and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. That said, even the major networks aren’t immune to cable-like flights of fancy. NBC’s foraging for a star with built-in appeal propelled chef Emeril Lagassefrom the Food Network’s kitchen into a sitcom, where he demonstrated that it is indeed possible to have a tough time playing yourself. Fox, meanwhile, with its tentative plans for another “Celebrity Boxing” special, continues to prove that any measure of fame or notoriety has value—especially if the possessor is willing to be pummeled about the head, either figuratively or literally, in exchange for a few more minutes in front of a camera. No one has suggested yet that Donahue strap on the gloves to promote his MSNBC series, which makes its debut this summer; still, given the desperation already on display, the idea sounds less like satire or science fiction than it once might have, as programmers scan the night sky for ways to arrest an audience, hopefully without resorting to tactics that will get themselves arrested in the process.
