Not according to the 2000 census:
Providence: 173,618 (118th among cities with 50,000+ population)
Worcester:  172,648 (120th)

The population figures for "inside-the-city-limits" are on thing;  however
the METRO populations for Providence, RI and Springfield, MA were and are
much larger than for for Worcester.  That's why Providence ended up with 
let's say two-and-a-half V's and Springfield would up in the analog days 
with two U's that were commercially viable locally-oriented TV stations.
