Although she accepts Sex And The City could never compete with the ladies of Wisteria Lane in the ratings, she credits the show with giving TV executives the notion that a programme all about women could be a hit.
Parker, who played lovelorn columnist CARRIE BRADSHAW in Sex And The City, says, "I think HBO (US cable network) did a really clever thing, creating this standing date on Sunday nights (in America) at nine.
"I think that's really a lot what this is about. There was a show that was successful to a smaller degree.
"This idea of this standing date for women (was) brilliant and now I think they need to do Monday night."
