Information Call COMMUNITY line I T TELEVISION TV viewers deliver high ratings for 'Ellen' episode By The Associated Press NEW YORK — Months of hype about the coming out episode of "Ellen" paid off handsomely for ABC. The hourlong program scored a 23.4 rating and 35 share in Nielsen Media Research's overnight measurements — more than twice DeGENERES For these items, use the following category codes: • Salina and regional arts / 2787 • Public schools / 8050 • Local churches / 7729 • Kansas Wesleyan Info Line / 5984 its usual audience and comparable to a typical episode of "ER," the year's top-rated show. Advertisers tailored special messages for "Ellen" — and paid special prices. Chrysler, a regular "Ellen" sponsor that pulled out of this episode, had to set up a phone line to deal with the calls about its decision. At "come out with Ellen" parties across the country, people cheered when star Ellen De- Generes stammered, "I'm gay," into an airport microphone during the show's climactic moment. De- Generes watched at a private party in Beverly Hills, Calif. The ratings indicated that 35 percent of the nation's TV sets on at the time were tuned to "Ellen." In Boston and San Francisco, ratings reached 45 percent. ABC estimated 42 million people watched all or some of the show. This compares to "Ellen's" average rating of 9.6 with a 16 share. The show had sagged to 37th place in the ratings this season, with only two-thirds the audience it had two years ago.
