Survivor Wins, But Friends Survives

Survivor II: The Australian Outback once again beat a 40-minute version of Friends and a 20-minute Saturday Night Live last weekend as it held on to the same number of viewers that it attracted the previous week.

Survivor pulled a 12.2 rating and a 29 share in its first half hour against an 11.4/28 for Friends. Nevertheless, the NBC shows also performed remarkably well, actually increasing their audience slightly from last week.
