Even all night repeats on Thursday night couldn't put out NBC's fire - it still won the ratings race. Starting off the night, the repeat of "Friends" scored an 8.7 rating, 23 share among adults 18-49
in national Nielsen numbers, followed by "The Weber Show," (7.0/18), "Will & Grace" (8.3/20) and "Just Shoot Me" (7.8/19). "ER" topped off the night with a 7.9/22. However, NBC did not go unchallenged
in total viewers. ABC's "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" drew 19.7 million viewers. But NBC did win primetime, averaging 13.4 million prime time viewers to the ABC's 12.2 million.
