24 Roars Back
The two hour TV movie 24 Redemption drew solid ratings Sunday night, auguring well for a return of the 24 series in January. The telecast averaged 12.04 million viewers. Combined with a half-hour football over-run earlier in the evening that drew 17.86 million viewers, Fox was able to post a rare win for a Sunday night. CBS, last week's Sunday-night winner, remained competitive as its 60 Minutes drew 14.53 million viewers. ABC also registered strongly with the 36th Annual American Music Awards, which captured 12.20 million viewers. NBC's Sunday Night Football, however, fell victim to the heavy competition, posting a below-average 12.29 million viewers and its pregame Football Night in America attracting only 6.71 million.
