ABC's 1960s drama about
stewardesses opportunities for women took on just 5.89 million viewers for its fourth episode Sunday night, finishing a distant third in prime time's final hour. Just to chart the downward trajectory of the previous weeks: Viewership has totaled 10.87 million, 7.75 million and 6.42 million. At this rate, the show soon will join the not brilliant-and-canceled scrap heap with The Playboy Club and Charlie's Angels.
At the same time, CSI: Miami grabbed 10.51 million people and a 2.4 rating even while fans were tuning out the Sunday Night Football game as the Chicago Bears beat the Minnesota Vikings. The game averaged an uncharacteristically low 14.74 million, a figured dragged down by the 12.61 million who hung in there from 10 to 11 p.m. EDT.
In prime time's first hour Sunday, Amazing Race had 9.26 million vs. Extreme Makeover: Home Edition's 7.10 million. A special Sunday airing of The X Factor pulled in 8.65 million people while posting a 3.4 demo rating.
