The Ratings

Out Of Tune

Poor ''American Music Awards'' (22nd). First, it got moved from January to November so it wouldn't be so close to the show people actually care about, February's ''Grammy Awards.'' Then on Sunday, even with a performance by American Idol's Clay and Ruben, ABC's ''AMA'' broadcast was beaten by a rerun of ''CSI'' (15th). On Tuesday, CBS topped ABC again when ''The Andy Griffith Show Reunion: Back to Mayberry'' (3rd) trounced the second revamped episode of ''8 Simple Rules,'' which dipped to 35th place. At least ABC got a patriotic boost later that night, when the 90-minute ''Primetime'' special with Jessica Lynch (13th) drew 15.7 million folks. NBC's ''Average Joe'' (49th) declined in week 2 (Dennis, we hardly knew ye!), while on Wednesday, ''The West Wing'' landed in a dead heat with ''The Bachelor'''s ''Women Tell All'' special (28th) on ABC.
