WLWT (Channel 5) won the 11 p.m. news, as it has consecutively since May of 1987, and tied for first place at 5:30 p.m. with WCPO-TV (Channel 9) in January Arbitron ratings released Tuesday. Channel 9 was second at 11 p.m. WKRC-TV (Channel 12) ranked third for both newscasts. Arbitron also reported that Super Bowl XXIII drew an incredible 66 rating and 90 share of all available Tristate viewers on Sunday, Jan. 22. That translates to 462,000 TV homes watching the San Francisco 49ers defeat the Cincinnati Bengals. Ratings for the Super Bowl week special shows broadcast live from Miami at 11:30 p.m. nightly will be available later this week. Late news ratings showed that 35 of all available viewers watched Channel 5's Jerry Spring-er-Toria Hammill newscast at 11 p.m. That's an increase from the 29 of all viewers who were watching NBC programming on the station at 10:30 p.m. "It appears that people make a fairly conscientious decision to find us," says Cliff Abromats, Channel 5 news director. "I'll take a 35 share any time." Viewers also are definitely flipping to Channel 9 news at 11 p.m. and deliberately turning away from Channel 12 news. Although 28 of all possible viewers were watching ABC programming at 10:30 p.m. a shade below Channel 5 s 29 Channel 12's late news audience sank to 18. "People just aren't sampling us, which we know," says Terry Connelly, general manager at Channel 12, which debuted a new anchor team last September. 'Dove' gives CBS its best week BY KATHRYN BAKER The Associated Press The final episode of Lonesome Dove was the highest-rated prime-time show last week, and although the four-part CBS Western only corraled a tie with NBC for the week, it was CBS highest rating in two years. The Monday and Tuesday installments of the eight-hour mini-series landed in the top 10 in the A.C. Nielsen Co. television ratings, but NBC's sitcoms and a new Perry Mason movie kept the No. 1 network's unbeaten streak alive at 34 weeks in a row. Lonesome Dove, Part 4 had a 27.3 rating and 41 share. The miniseries wound up with a four-night average rating of 26.1 and TV highlights Evening 8:00 (12) (2) Growing Pains: The kids throw a surprise 20th-anniver-sary party for Jason and Maggie.

"This station is doing remarkably well to overcome that (network deficit) as much as possible," says Frank Gardner, Channel 9 general manager. The 5:30 p.m. news ratings tie, by Channels 5 and 9, brought smiles in both newsrooms. Channel 9, the usual early news leader, saw its ratings improve over last January, despite the tie. Channel 5, usually second in early news, was happy with the tie, despite a ratings drop from a year ago. Channel 9's new 5 p.m. newscast continued to win its time period, beating Channel 5's Cosby Show reruns. "Our news still beats the biggest entertainer in television," Gardner says. Magazine shows popular Ratings for syndicated series showed that Donahue and Oprah Winfrey handily win their time periods, and that Tristate viewers are tuning in the nightly news magazines, just like the rest of the nation. Channel 5's new Inside Edition premiered strong in January, drawing 16 of all 7 p.m. viewers (compared to 12 for USA Today in November). The news magazine ranked third at 7 p.m. behind Wheel Of Fortune (30) and Night Court reruns (19). The move to 7:30 p.m. increased ratings for USA Today (to 14), but the program still finished fourth behind Jeopardy (28), a revitalized Entertainment Tonight (20) and MASH (15). a 39 share, good enough for 14th on the all-time-high miniseries list. It is the highest-rated multipart movie in 4Vi years. NBC had expected to lose the week, because of the unexpectedly high audience levels for Lonesome Dove. But NBC prevailed by a fraction of a rating point and, after rounding, was tied with CBS. Both had a 16.7 rating for the week ending Feb. 12. That was CBS' highest rating since March 1987. ABC had a 12.8. Top 10 network shows 1. Lonesome Dove, Part 4 2. The Cosby Show, NBC 3. The Cosby Show Special, NBC 4. Lonesome Dove, Part 3 game show; a cantankerous judge jails Dan for contempt.

But they're also worshipped, exploited, studied and slaughtered. Wonder Years (9 p.m., ABC): Kevin and Paul conduct a science experiment with hamsters. Local mystery: The 1982 death of appliance repairman Permon "Gene" Gilbert will be featured on NBC's Unsolved Mysteries next Wednesday, says segment producer, Tim Rogen. Gilbert, 46, a Brown County resident, was found shot, beaten and naked near Bethel, Ohio, on May 22, 1 982. Unsolved Mysteries spent a week taping the segment here in late November. Bridgetown real estate salesman Joseph Zahneis plays Gilbert in the TV re-enactment. Sweeps bleeps: The hits just keep on coming. Tonight's special "sweeps" news series are: Channel 9 profiles the TV pioneers' lunch bunch featured by Jim Knippenberg on last Sunday's Tempo cover (5:30 p.m., Channel 9); "When Violence Hits Home," about domestic violence (11 p.m., Channel 12); and the troubling lack of quality at auto emission test centers (5:30 p.m., Channel 5), though I'm told Noel Morgan's Channel 5 series won't name places and names, as Dave Fehling did last year in a similar Channel 9 series. News leak: The TV news wars have turned ugly at Great American Broadcasting's station in Tampa. Michael Shapiro, WTSP-TV's assistant news director, was arrested on 14 felony counts last week for "break-ins" and "attempted break-ins" of the newsroom computer system at rival WTVT-TV, Shapiro's former employer. Shapiro, caught by a phone line tap placed on WTVT-TV's computer, was charged with reading and destroying computer files relating to news stories. JOHN KIESEWETTER 5.
