[ LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fox
broadcasting won ugly, as they say
Jn sports, breaking into the top five
jn the ratings with TV’s most
boorish families, “The Simpsons”
|md the Bundys of “Married ...
; “The Simpsons” was the No. 3
Show last week, and the equally
Srumpy but non-animated brood of
"‘Married ... With Children” was
No. 4, the A.C. Nielsen Co. said

was still the No. 1 network, receiv-

NBC’s “The Cosby Show,”
which will face off against “The
Simpsons” in the fall, fell to fifth
