ABC, CBS score with Fisher pix

America apparently can’t get enough of Amy Fisher, as the second and third telefilm versions of her story within a week both drew strong ratings–opposite each other, no less–on ABC and CBS.

The ABC version got the better of things in Sunday’s Nielsen overnights with a 19.4 rating, 29 share, while CBS’ “Casualties of Love” countered with a respectable 15.7/23.

Both movies topped the television premiere of the Jean-Claude Van Damme theatrical “Lionheart” (14.4/22) on NBC.

In fact, ABC’s results with its Drew Barrymore version of the story actually surpassed the rating (but not share) for NBC’s get-there-first installment “Amy Fisher: My Story,” which drew a 19.1/30 nationally airing Dec. 28. All three webs had originally scheduled their movies for late January but moved them up in an effort not to be last with their take on the Fisher tale.
