WB ‘Time’ makes tracks in Nielsen, Arb numbers

The two-hour debut of “Time Trax,” a new sci-fi series from Warner Bros. Domestic TV Distribution’s “Prime Time Entertainment Network,” which blasted off on most stations Wednesday night, delivered a 7 rating/10 share in 22 metered Nielsen markets.

Its Nielsen perf represented a 43% gain over November and February 1992 shares.

In 17 Arbitron markets, “Trax” earned a 6.2/9, representing a 29% increase over the time period share in November and last February.

“Trax” managed to pull out time period wins in several markets against CBS’ “Space Rangers” and NBC’s “Unsolved Mysteries,””Seinfeld” and “Mad About You.”

The new series also won out over Geraldo Rivera’s “The New Godfathers” spec (which averaged a 7.4/12 in 16 Nielsen markets) in San Francisco, Houston and Dallas. The two tied in L.A., but Rivera won out in other markets.

Nielsen showed “Trax” equalling the share delivery of the premiere of Paramount’s “The Untouchables,” which fired a 7.2/10. The WB entry outdelivered the shoot-’em-up in 13 markets where both shows aired on the same station (7.8/ 11 to a 7.3/11).

“Trax” beat “The Untouchables” in N.Y. (7.3/10 vs. 7.1/10), L.A. (9.3/14 to 9 .2/13) and San Francisco (8.5/12 to a 5.8/10). The WB show also achieved wins in Tampa, Fla., Phoenix, Denver, Cleveland and San Diego, tying in Portland, Ore.

In L.A., Trax, airing 8-10 p.m. on “Prime Time Network” member KCOP, outperformed both KNBC-TV and KCBS-TV and matched “The New Godfathers.”

Par’s “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” meanwhile, continued its winning streak as the first one-hour episode posted a 15.0 averaged combined rating (original and repeat) in 31 markets.
