BILLY RAY'S DOC  A HIT

It's official: Billy Ray Cyrus is an overwhelming hit in his new role on the PAX-TV series Doc. The folks at PAX are so happy with the show's initial success they've announced plans to film eight additional episodes of the primetime weekly series.

"In the history of the network, we've never received such ratings," said PAX-TX Executive Vice President Tim Johnston, "not to mention a deluge of phone calls, email and fan mail -- all indicating that Doc is a home run."

The hour-long series reaped record high ratings for PAX-TV with its kick-off on Sunday, March 11, and has subsequently placed No. 5 in its timeslot, beating out shows on bigger networks like WB and UPN.

Doc features Billy Ray as a small-town doctor who moves to New York only to find that life in the big city isn't quite what he's used to. The show airs 8:00 p.m. Eastern on the PAX-TV network.
