TELEVISION RATINGS

Tiger Woods and David Duval couldn't quite match the appeal of Mike Wallace and Dan Rather.

CBS won an easy prime-time ratings victory last week, with three newsmagazines in the top 10. It was the first time CBS had the three top-rated newsmagazines since 60 Minutes II premiered in January.

For the week, CBS had a 6.7 rating, Nielsen Media Research said Tuesday. NBC was second with a 5.8, ABC had a 5.4 and Fox had a 4.0. Among the emerging networks, the WB had a 2.3, UPN had a 1.6 and Pax TV was at 0.8.

ABC's World News Tonight won the evening news ratings race for the second straight week with a 7.0 rating. The NBC Nightly News had a 6.8, and the CBS Evening News was at 5.7.
