I LOVE LUCY: 50th Anniversary Special

From Mark Easley:

How did the rerun of the Lucy special last Wednesday do in the ratings?

* * * * *

Relatively well! The show earned a 7.4 household rating, representing 12 percent of the households watching in those hours. (That converts to an average audience of 7.8 million homes during any given minute.) The show ranked # 23 for the week, and ranked as # 8 among the CBS shows. While this may sound "less than stellar," the numbers are, in fact, considered very good -- CBS typically does a lot worse than this in the Wednesday 9-11PM hours against NBC's powerful "West Wing" and "Law & Order". The network, in fact, at this moment has NO regularly scheduled series in that time slot, and is rerunning a whole batch of specials there...
