Hollywood Reporter: 'Simpsons' shafts miners, comics

Simpsons News — Posted 27 Nov, 2002 by Scott

It was close, but the Pennsylvania miners wound up besting the Martin & Lewis story in Sunday's battle of the 9-11 p.m. original telefilms. And for all the sweep specials, Fox's 8 p.m. mainstay, "The Simpsons," was still the most-watched program overall Sunday. "Simpsons" combined with an NFL overrun helped Fox win the night in the adults 18-49 demo (a 5.9 rating/14 share), while ABC prevailed in viewers (15.6 million), according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research. "Simpsons" averaged 17.5 million viewers and a 7.9/18 in adults 18-49, which carried the day for Fox despite the significant slide registered at 8:30 p.m. by "King of the Hill" (13.1 million, 5.9/13) and at 9 p.m. by "Malcolm in the Middle" (9.9 million, 4.2/9).
