(broadcastingcable.com) - NBC won Wednesday night prime with a push from repeats of West Wing and Law & Order. Both drew 18.2 million viewers, with the White House drama hitting a 6.5 rating, 16 share among adults 18-49 in national Nielsen numbers, while Law & Order logged a 6.8/18. Ed appeared secure at the top of the lineup, with a 5.0/14. ABC's college edition of Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? drew 19.7 million viewers, helping the mouse to a second place finish. Drew Carey did a 6.3/16, as Spin City scored a modest 5.4/14 and Gideon's Crossing hit a 3.4/9. Bette continued to bomb with a 2.5/7. And no one really wanted to know How to Marry a Billionaire, as Fox's goofball special flopped to a 2.8/7. Meanwhile, lots of viewers missed Whitney Houston belting out one of her classic ballads in a repeat screening of The Bodyguard: Whitney drew a 3.4/8.
