ABC Wins Sunday

ABC dominated the ratings Sunday night with its combination of the movie Sister Act 2, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, and the Practice averaging a 10.7 rating and a 17 share.

CBS, helped by its perennially strong 60 Minutes, finished close behind with a 10.2/15. But NBC, saddled with an American League playoff game that was played so slowly that it completely wiped out NBC's scheduled airing of Dateline in the 7:00 p.m. hour and forced the new drama Ed to air a half hour later than scheduled, wound up with a 7.5/11, finishing behind Fox which pulled a 7.6/11.
