THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19, 196S THE REGISTER-NEWS MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS 5-B Only One Sob A Week By BOB THOMAS Associated Press Writer * HOLLYWOOD (API - Next month "Peyton Place" cuts back to one chapter a week on television. At the end of the season, the long-run serial will shuffle off the network, leaving a number of plots still tangled. As it must to all TV series, "Peyton Place" will soon be breathing its last, consigned to daytime programming by anemic ratings. Paul Monash, the man who conceived the series and saw It through the five years and 500-plus episodes, has "this feeling about the end : "It 's like watching an old friend die. You know it's a terminal disease, and that makes your friendship more precious than ever. Bui you keep your emotional distance in order to prepare yourself for the loss." He has no regrets. After all, "Peyton Place" has had a good, long ride on ABC. The viewing public took immediately to the innovation of a continuing story on two nights a week. The suc­ cess was such that the network added a third night, which ; seemed to some critics as being a bit greedy. The third chapter was later dropped, and now the second one. Monash complained about how that was done: "ABC kept us on Monday opposite "Laugh- j in* 'Lucy* instead of Wednesday. 1 where we were doing pretty well. That seems to be a sign that the network is abandoning the show, except in skeletal [form. No show can hope to do (well opposite 'Laugh-In'," Can "Peyton Place" be saved? "The only thing that can do it is an avalanche of mail," said the executive producer. Switching the metaphor, he reported, • "so (ar there has been a current, but not a flood." He added his own diagnosis of the show 's ills: " 'Peyton Place' suffered fromi a virus that is bound to infect this kind of show. The longer it goes on, the more complicated the plot becomes. After we hud done 250 i shows, the viewer who tuned in and tried to follow the plot was apt to be fairly well confused. "I have seen no survey on this, but I suspect that the bulk of our viewers have been watch- ins 'bo show since its begin- : nings. The others drifted away, and noi enough new fans have been added. "It's the fault of the form. Actually our shows this season I have never been better; they're more vital, alive and contempc- jrary. But we've succumbed to !the erosion of five years of being on the air." O •* • ' # A.'.Mv--J !^.N >vN.v; NEWS BK1E1 MIAMI. Fla.
