Seems Like Old Times


NBC, which for years had dominated Thursday nights but was gradually overtaken by rivals CBS and ABC, roared back into the winner's position this week thanks to its game show, Deal or No Deal and a two-hour season finale of Celebrity Apprentice. NBC's ratings were more than double what they were during the comparable night a year ago, while CBS's were nearly half what they were then. ABC was down by a third; Fox, by a fourth. Deal drew a 6.9 rating and an 11 share to place first in the 8:00 p.m. hour, while the two hours of Apprentice that followed averaged an 8.1/13. Although the Donald Trump show appeared on the verge of extinction a year ago, Trump himself said at the end of Thursday night's show that it would be around "years into the future."
