Elizabeth Smart Beats out Jessica Lynch
I would've thought that army training would help Lynch, but apparently living for months as the sex slave of a religious zealot toughened up Elizabeth Smart enough to win the Sunday night made-for-TV-movie rumble. Drudge reports the following:
In a direct Sunday night showdown, the kidnapping story of Elizabeth Smart out-rated the rescue telling of Jessica Lynch, network sources tell DRUDGE.
CBS drew a larger audience for SMART STORY, overnight ratings reveal, with a 10.8 rating/16 share; as NBC trailed, albeit by slim margins, for SAVING JESSICA LYNCH at 9.9 rating/14 share.
