   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - January 7, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                 vision Today  Ny Hick Du Brow  (he Ort ar Rapids Gazette: Mon., Jan. 7,    1974  Grassroot Ratings Save Shows Pi 100111  P er, h  Rockets Hit (/on Nostrond Biosis . Compound at     Aufo     Emission    Device^ arren Demes   HOLLYWOOD (IJIM) 'Un* video ratings indicate there tire definitely some major inferences i ii taste between the grassroots audience and televiewers iii New York City and Los Angeles.  HI atis t i c a I figures f o r nu brow two series in  particular, CBS TV’s “The Waltons’’ and NRC TV’s “Walt Disney Hour”, offer proof of this point.  Neither show, for instance, is a major weekly ratings hit in New York, but both are big successes iii the national rankings.  “The Waltons” never would have become the. smash that it is without the backing of the grassroots audience.  Early ratings for the show in New York and l»s Angeles were disastrous. Then it steadily began to move up in the statistical competition. Still, New York wasn’t buying it, and Los Angeles was not going overboard for it either.  * * *  Yet the phenomenal rise of “The Waltons” continued, and now it regularly finishes among video’s highest-rated programs.  The New York ratings for “The Waltons” have improved, but the show would probably be canceled if CBS-TV made a programming decision based solely on these figures. Los Angeles now is close to the national statistics for the series.  As for the weekly Disney program, it, too, might be a candidate for cancellation if NBC-TV made a schedule decision based strictly on the New York ratings. But the grassroots audience makes this series a powerhouse entry. Los Angeles statistics  an* relatively consistent with I In- national figures.  ♦ * *  One of the revelations ut the  ratings is that there is clearly no overriding correlation between sophisticated programs and the big-city audiences of New York or Los Angeles.  While viewers in these cities sometimes give a bigger tune-in to culturally oriented prime time broadcasts, there are a number of times when the grassroots audience outdoes them in this respect.  Smart television programmers have long since put aside the word “provincial” when referring to viewers of various regions. These executives know you can be just as provincial in a Manhattan or Los Angeles apartment building as on a farm.

However, the NCDC said the cases are isolated and no outbreaks of the influenza-like disease have been reported in this country.  Bing Views Tourney From Hospital Bed  BURLINGAME, Calif.
