'Amnesia' bow is memorable


The Friday night premiere of NBC's new game show "Amnesia" was the network's best performance in the time period in nearly a year.

The series, hosted by Dennis Miller, drew a 2.4 preliminary rating among adults 18-49 (7.6 million viewers/7 share), outperforming the October debut of "Friday Night Lights" in the time period by 14%.

Still, "Amnesia" came in second place to a repeat of "House" on Fox for the 9 p.m. hour and was down 17% when compared with the premiere of "Identity" in the time period last year.

Also Friday, CBS' presentation of "The Price Is Right Million Dollar Spectacular" (9.4 million, 2.5/8) at 8 p.m. bested the season finale of "1 vs. 100" (7.6 million, 2.1/6) in the 8 p.m. hour. "Price" was up 19% from its last Friday night special in June.
