'Farrah's Story' draws nearly 9 million viewers

Farrah Fawcett proved she’s still a major draw for TV audiences when her special, Farrah’s Story, attracted 8.9 million viewers to NBC Friday night, according to a press release issued by the network. Although not the no. 1 network show for the evening (CBS’s Numb3rs outdistanced Fawcett, with 9.6 million people watching the procedural drama’s season finale), it was still NBC’s highest-rated Friday night program in a year, excluding the Olympics. Farrah’s Story, shot with Fawcett’s own video camera, documents the Charlie’s Angels vet’s two-and-a-half-year fight with anal cancer.
