For further information Call re 3-3441 july 3rd thru july 6th a the Public does no to really know what they want frankly a he said. A they seem to like what they re getting. But nobody knows of they like something else until you be tried Ted Post director of a Peyton place and a Leader of the Academy of television arts and sciences believes that a giving the Public what it wants is an Alibi since the Public cannot know How much better it might be served. Profit motive a it is repellent to see democratic principles trotted out As a cover for network policies which Are pursued not because they Are principled but because they Are profitable a he said to production costs have zoomed so High that sponsors pay lbs from <135,000 to $175,000 for a half hour show today. Therefore they feel they must reach an enormous audience to get their Money s Worth. High Cost is one of the three big changes in programming since to began. The second is that one sponsor no longer can afford to foot the Bill for a show it takes several. The third change is that nearly everything is currently on film a half hour filmed show Cost $7,000 to $9,000 to years ago. Today the Price is $150,000, lbs program director Mike Dann says a you can bring in a South Pacific on Broadway for what we pay to put on a variety show labor costs have soared. Stagehands salaries Are 40 per cent higher than to years ago. A Star charges around $125,000 an appearance lbs paid one million dollars to barbra Streisand for three a specials. Talent scarce lbs Lafferty complains that a a handful of producers and writers get astronomical salaries because there Aren t Many Good furthermore he said a audiences won t accept today what they did 15 years ago a just people talking on a living room set. They want action which takes More time to shoot. Today s shows have More elaborate sets special effects and longer shooting schedules. Mark Goodson producer of a a what a my line a says that it pays to spend these millions a because the audience reached today is so a today s program is a lower common denominator than to years ago because to a More widespread audience a he said. A in the Early Days there were 2 million sets and you had an elite minority. Now if you re an advertiser who to reach 60 million people you want to get the biggest widest Broom there is. That accounts for the mass programming and the disgruntled attitude of the disenfranchised do watchers buy does it necessarily follow that sponsors will reap huge sales of their automobiles and hair Spray if they get huge audiences Hollywood to director Barry Shear says no. A the Good programs will arrive when networks realize they can reach 10,000 educated people with Money who la buy the product instead of the mass audience who won t buy a is opinion. This idea is supported by a 1965 Louis Harris poll which concluded that most to programs Appeal to teen agers and people Over 50 who have Only a Grade school education live in Small communities and make $5,000 or less a year. A spokesman at Young and Rubicam advertising Agency explained that a there Are not Many sponsors like Xerox who said most sponsors Are like general foods Selling food products which wants to reach the maximum number of viewers. Therefore a it can t be Wise to put on an adult Type show that reaches seven million Homes if for the same Money they can have a n o t h e r a a mass show that reaches 14 kids run to the theory of one network program executive is that youngsters Rule an american family and thus control the to sets. Therefore he reasons put on shows for the kids and the adults sitting helpless in the living room will have to hear the commercials. One sponsor that disagrees is hallmark greeting cards which Sells its products to the masses via a a Long hair show a the hallmark Hall of Fame a that won 25 emmy awards for serious drama. Joyce Hall founder of the firm says a a in a rather hold the attention of 20 million people than just reach 30 million and make a bad impression. Sponsors Are wrong not to recognize that the ratings do not say whether the viewer likes the show or merely accepts what is does the a a mass want a change in programs network executives say the a a mass filmed series Are vital because the profit pays the expenses of the costly Public affairs programs such As the gemini shots which the executives say do not pull spectacular ratings and Are not easily sold to sponsors. Public affairs preferred yet last february the lbs a a feedback program polled the Chicago area and reported 72 per cent of viewers prefer those Public affairs programs to entertainment shows. Asked if they would like to see More information programs and less entertainment 59 per cent said yes. Actually you Are getting More news and information shows today a about iou hours a week plus news a a specials in prime evening time As compared with 41/2 hours to years ago. Abc devotes about 25 per cent of its time to news and information lbs 20 per cent and Abc 18 per cent. In tvs baby Days to news programs lasted Only 15 minutes. Two and a half years ago the networks changed to 30 minutes and now networks talk of news one hour in color and news relayed live from Europe and Viet Nam by satellite.
