    Reality TV Bowls Over Nielsen Ratings


    STEPHEN M. SILVERMAN



    ABC's telecast of Super Bowl XXXVII turned out, typically, to be the ratings champ of last week, but there was cause for popping champagne corks over at FOX, too.
    The network's "American Idol" attracted a whopping 26.5 million viewers for the first night of its second season last Tuesday, and just under 25 million for the second episode Wednesday, according to Nielsen Media Research.

    Fox's other reality phenom, "Joe Millionaire," also landed in the top 10.

    As far as the Bowl played out, Sunday's game was seen by an average of 88.6 million people, with ABC estimating that 137.6 million Americans watched at least some of the game, making it the second most-watched Super Bowl ever by this measure -- behind only the 1996 Dallas-Pittsburgh game. (Population increases favor more recent Bowls, notes the Associated Press.)

    For the week of Jan. 20-26, the Top 10 prime-time programs were as follows:

    1. Super Bowl XXXVII, ABC, 88.6 million viewers
    2. Super Bowl Post Game Special, 71.6 million
    3. Super Bowl Post Game, ABC, 48.2 million
    4. "American Idol," Tuesday, FOX, 26.5 million
    5. "American Idol," Wednesday, FOX, 24.9 million
    6. "CSI," CBS, 24.5 million
    7. "American Idol Special," FOX, 23.6 million
    8. "Joe Millionaire," FOX, 18.8 million
    9. "Friends," NBC, 16.6 million
    10. "Law & Order," NBC, 16.6 million

    I still prefer non-reality to reality TV, but I can see the attraction.

    I like both.
    I love Survivor and what better way to move on from that than with an hour of CSI and then ER or Without A Trace?

    No kidding, Fluff.

    I like both too, but I watch more drama (fake) than real. I really enjoyed watching TAR (first time this past race), love Survivor, love Big Brother, enjoy Fear Factor, and peek in at a few of the others.

    I like non-reality shows better, but lately, I've been watching a lot more reality shows. It's part of the job.
