Nukes put ABC on top
LOS ANGELES (AP) — ABC’s much-discussed nuclear war movie "The Day After,” in what was virtually a solo effort, propelled ABC ahead of CBS to win the Nielsen ratings for the week ended Nov. 20.
ABC won the week although the movie was its only entry in the Top IO and eight of the others were CBS programs. The movie's rating of 46.0 and share of 62 percent gave ABC a tremendous boost over CBS and NBC.
CBS won the week before and remains ahead for the season to date. Third-place NBC also had one show in the top rank.
The movie, which attracted IOO million viewers, devastated its Sunday night opposition. The opening chapter of the NBC miniseries Kennedy was in 54th place. The CBS lineup of comedies also fell below their usual rankings.
ABC won the week with an average of 20.4 in the A.C. Nielsen Co. ratings. CBS was second with 19.1 and NBC was third with 13.5. The networks say this means that in an average prime-time minute 20.4 percent of the nation’s TV homes were tuned to ABC.
The rating of "The Day After” fell short of breaking any viewing records. It became the most watched made-for-television movie, but overall it ranks after such series programs as the final episode of "M-A-S-H" and the Who shot JR.'”' episode of “Dallas.”
CBS kept its lead among the evening news shows. CBS had a rating of 14.1 and ABC and NBC tied with ILB.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - The underside of show business success holds a fascination for Bob Fosse. But he doesn’t know why.
"There must be something in my background that bothers me, but I can’t tell you what it is,” he says. "I’m in my 43rd year in show business — I started at the age of 13. The business has been good to me in many respects; I’ve received a great deal of satisfaction from it.
"I started in the pits of show business, andTve seen the middle and the top — whole pecking order. So I’ve seen people enjoy great success, and I’ve seen others destroyed.”
It’s the downside that seems to emerge in his films. Lenny traced the decline and fall of the pioneering satirist Lenny Bruce. Cabaret depicted the decadence of Berlin and its night life in the early Nazi period. AU That Jazz related the hard life and early death of a Broadway choreographer.
And now there’s Star 80.
The new movie tells of the short, glittering life of Dorothy Stratton, who stepped from the Playboy centerfold into movie acting. Her career ended with a shotgun blast by her husband-manager, who then killed himself.
Fosse said his idea was to focus on Paul Snider, the man who discovered Miss Stratton in Vancouver, brought her to the attention of Playboy chief Hugh Hefner, married her and tried to manage her career.
"I’ve always been fascinated with ‘the man behind the star.' I’ve seen them all my life, seen how they promote their wives or sweethearts, some with great success, some not so,” Fosse said.
"Also, I wanted to do another straight (nonmusical) film. It would still have sequences that I am familiar with — the night club, the roller skating, the whole Playboy scene, which is not show business and yet it is.”
Fosse said his enthusiasm for the project grew as he researched and wrote the script. Then a two-hour television movie, Death of a Centerfold: The Dorothy

"I was terribly upset,” he said. "I feared that no matter how well I told the story it would be compared to the TV show. If I hadn’t written a finished script and started casting, I might have drpped the whole thing.”
