A show that can't pull in at least one-third of the audience is not only in trouble, it's a money-loser. It is difficult to sell to advertisers and usually pulls down the ratings of the shows that precede or follow it. That brings up the case of Bridget Loves Bernie on CBS. Here was a show that started off in the top five of the ratings and was regularly in the top 10. Yet when the networks recently announced next fall's schedules, Bridget was among the casu- alties. In this case the ratings were deceiving. Bridget was slotted directly behind All in the Fam- ily, the No. 1 show of the sea- son. Even a test pattern imme- diately following All in the Family would get a high rating. The show, about the inter- marriage of a Jewish man and a Roman Catholic woman, drew protest from both Jewish and Catholic groups. One eminent rabbi said: "The program treats intermarriage in a cav- alier, cute, condoning fashion, and deals with its inevitable problems as though they're in- stantly, easily solvable." Nevertheless, that is reported not the real reason the show was cancelled. As the season progressed, It became evident that Bridget was not holding its own. It had lofty ratings only because of the audience overflow from All in the Family. More important, It was not able to hold onto that audience and was hurting the highly re- garded Mary Tyler Moore Show that followed. The three networks cancelled 15 others shows. In all cases, it was due to anemic ratings. Laugh-In, a onetime ratings and the show that probably changed television more than any other, was among the victims. Laugh-In stayed at the top only as long as it was fresh and the" material good. When the freshness departed and the ma- terial became predictable and repetitious, it.faded in the rat- ings. All-round man Richard Widmark, star of NBC-TV's had these credits at Lake Forest University: president ol senior class, captain of debating team, king of junior prom; presi- dent of honor society, and star end of varisty football team. arpet (Specializing in carpet) REMNANTS SEE THE LATEST AND NEWEST FLOOR FASHIONS EY HARDING and SUPERTUFF AND MANY MORE "WE CARE AS MUCH ABOUT YOUR FLOORS AS YOU DO" CORNER 3rd AVE AND 13th ST.
