The Associated Press
NEW YORK — A month before it officiaUy starts, the new fall television season has its first potential hit on its hands.
Fox jimiped the gun Sunday with its critically acclaimed comedy, "That '70s Show," and it finished 21st in Nielsen Media Research's rankings of the week's prime-time shows. More impressive, it was the week's most-watched prograifi-among the 18-49 age group coveted by advertisers and even outrated the season premiere of Fox's long-running hit "The Simpsons."
"That '70s Show" is about teen-agers growing up in Wisconsin in 1976.
The early start didn't help Fox's second new Sunday night comedy, "Holding the Baby." The show about a single father finished a dismal 86th among 116 prime-time shows, Nielsen said on Tuesday.
For the week, CBS's 6.9 rating and 12 share narrowly edged NBC's 6.8 rating and 12 share for first place. ABC was heartened by its 6.4 rating and 12 share.Peoplechat^ INGLEWOpD, Calif.Coleman pleads innocent in assault accusation
