Nearly 13 million viewers watched Carrie pick Big over that slap-happy Russian on Sex and the City's 45-minute finale Sunday night, roughly double the show's usual audience. Meanwhile, the secret about those so-called alternate endings is out. (Producers shot three different conclusions in order to keep the Big climax under wraps.) Sarah Jessica Parker tells USA Today that all three endings brought Carrie home to the Big Apple. "The second one was that Petrovsky was coming home after me," she says. "And the third one was me coming home to New York alone." A rumored fourth ending revealed Big's name to be Hermie.
