The Ratings

Best Western

This week's TV ratings

On the first Sunday night of May sweeps, part one of CBS' Anjelica Huston-Melanie Griffith oater, Buffalo Girls (4th), rode roughshod over NBC's Fred Dryer crime drama, The Return of Hunter (15th), and ABC's Clint Eastwood Oscar winner, Unforgiven (34th). Another CBS Western, Walker, Texas Ranger, shot up into the top 10, even as star Chuck Norris' new movie, Top Dog, was proving a bowser at the box office. By contrast, the big-screen success of Bad Boys hasn't helped Martin Lawrence's flaccid Fox sitcom, Martin (72nd). And in a clash of female-appeal Monday movies, Susan Lucci's made-for-NBC sudser, Seduced and Betrayed (12th), thrashed ABC's more simply titled Goldie Hawn thriller, Deceived (46th).
