For the past few weeks All three National networks have been reporting in glowing detail their expectations for programming next september and one network has even announced shows for the Christmas holidays. However Abc Only this week got around to revealing that Bobby Darrin will replace Dean Martins show reruns with a variety show for about six weeks during the latter part of the summer. Lbs this week decided to Cut out reruns of its mid season replacement Quot me and the Chimp the end of this month and fill the time period until september with repeats third time around actually of Quot my world and Welcome to this series based on James Thurber a drawings and sense of humor was originally run and rerun on Abc. Summer time is. Of course traditionally rerun time in television but in recent seasons summer has become As Long As Winter. Most series turned out no More than 22 or 24 new episodes and some were Cut Back to 18. Now it appears there Are fewer than usual sum Mer programs fewer newcomers Given exposure. The answer to the questions of Why All this is happening is an old one economics. It has been a rough year financially for television which lost ont Only its cigarette advertisers but also revenues from three and one half hours of prime evening time weekly. The Federal communications commission ordered the time returned to local stations in the 50 top markets but the edict affected most stations of the nation. Television programs Are increasingly expensive to produce. Almost any hour Long program costs at least $200,000, and most half hour shows have budgets of around $100,000. Summer it seems is the time to recoup or at least try to. There was a time however when Competition was so fierce that a program or a series originally shown on one network would never be seen on another. No More As cd so a acquisition of Quot my world and Welcome to it indicates. There Are other evidences of the Pinch. Abc has already started showing reruns of elderly Quot Bonanza episodes on tuesday nights under the title of Quot Ponderosa a and at the same time is showing reruns of More recent Quot Bonanza episodes in the programs familiar sunday night spot.
