* Repeats of numerous returning series have settled into their new fall time slots in attempts to make viewers aware of their new homes. But not a lot of people are watching them. Those series are ABC’s “Dragnet” on Saturdays at 10 p.m. (1.3/5 in adults 18 to 49 and 4.6 million viewers); CBS’s “JAG” on Fridays at 8 p.m. (1.3/5 and 5.4 million) and “Hack” on Saturdays at 9 p.m. (0.9/3 and 4.5 million); Fox’s “Wanda At Large” (1.4/6 and 3.5 million) and “Boston Public” (1.1/4 and 2.7 million) on Fridays; NBC’s “Boomtown” on Fridays at 10 p.m. (1.7/6 and 5.1 million); The WB’s “Smallville” on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. (1.0/4 and 2.4 million), “Reba” on Fridays at 8 p.m. (1.4/5 and 2.7 million); and UPN’s “One on One” on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. (0.8/3 and 2 million).
* The only two networks showing growth in adults 18 to 49 during the first 11 weeks of the summer vs. the same period last year are ABC and UPN, both on the strength of repeats of their returning scripted series. ABC is up 5 percent and UPN up 9 percent.
