‘Hit Me’ Lands a Blow for NBC

Jun 3, 2005  •  Post A Comment

The premiere of NBC’s 1980s pop concert showcase “Hit Me Baby One More Time” received a 4.7 rating among viewers 18 to 49 (8.9 million viewers overall).

Though the night was won by CBS with its top-rated crime dramas “CSI” and “Without a Trace,” NBC said “Hit Me” tied a “CSI” rerun to be the highest 18 to 49 prime-time telecast since the end of May sweeps, and was the highest-rated summer unscripted series premiere since 2003.
