'Nick and Jessica' Boost ABC's Fortunes Sunday

By Cynthia Littleton

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Married pop stars Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson (news) came through for ABC on Sunday, leading the network to a rare nightly victory in the adults 18-49 demographic with their 9 p.m. "Nick and Jessica Variety Hour" special.


The hourlong "Nick and Jessica," an experiment with a throwback to the Sonny & Cher era of hip musical comedy-variety, easily won its hour with an average of 11.4 million viewers and 4.7 rating/11 share in adults 18-49 demo, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research.

ABC was also hot at 8 p.m. with "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" (11.7 million viewers, 4.5/12).

As popular culture slowly descends into Hell....
"Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. ~ Muhammad Ali

Despite a few rough edges, I thought it was fantastic! As both performers and the show mature, I think this will be an exciting and entertaining show.
