"ER" and "Seinfeld" continued their giving ways, while a special "Mad About You," without commercial interruptions, delivered the Paul Reiser-Helen Hunt comedy's biggest audience since its season premiere in September. ABC claimed second place behind its highest-rated "Monday Night Football" game in more than a year, pitting the Denver Broncos against the San Francisco 49ers. On the down side, the network's nightly news again finished third, and "Ellen" fumbled away nearly one-third of the audience watching "The Drew Carey Show." The standard-bearer in that dubious-achievement department is the ABC comedy "Hiller and Diller," which inspired more than 40 of those viewing "Home Improvement" to reach for the remote control on Dec. 16. NBC's annual showing of "Home Alone" roughed up the other networks Friday, dropping ABC's "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" and Fox's "Millennium" to their lowest ratings for original episodes. Exclusive rights to "It's a Wonderful Life" also paid off, providing NBC a rare victory over CBS' Saturday lineup. -BRIAN LOWRY National Nielsen Viewership Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (Dec. 15-21) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research.

ELDER Continued from F4 ongoing effect the boycott threats have had. The show's protesters have not been forthcoming to the press about who they are and how many people are involved. Until executives under new station manager Bill Sommers spoke last week, KABC remained virtually mum on the subject. The amount of advertising revenue KABC has lost in the last two years has been reported at $3 million. The show remains fully sponsored, but at lower ad rates. KABC does not lose money on the show, but it doesn't make as much as it would like to. KABC executives insist they have stood by Elder since the boycott effort began, although Elder's show was cut back from four to two hours last month. "Larry Elder is on the air, and he has never left the air," 'said Sommers. KABC community relations representative Nelkane Benton said, "I think the TV ads might have stirred the pot I can't figure out the reason for fund-raising for someone who's still on the air." In an interview at the time the ads launched, Horowitz said the sole reason for the ads was to "lend support" to Elder, who Horowitz said was someone whose right of free speech was being threatened. The boycott was in the form of fliers and letters sent to advertisers, accusing Elder and fellow KABC host Dennis Prager of using anti-black hate speech in an ongoing campaign to denigrate African Americans. Elder and KABC executives have always denied he made such statements. "If he had really said those things, he would be off the air," says bmmers KABC acted no differently than many other media outlets when faced with boycott threats, but station executives realize the decision to remain mum may not have been wise in hindsight. Benton admits she and others at the station figured the situation would blow over, so they just "circled the wagons" and decided not to speak out. Several protesters were invited to KABC for a meeting; Benton says they were not open to real discussion of ending the boycott In two phone interviews, a man who identified himself as Re Ta-harka denied the Talking Drum was behind the boycott but insisted that "thousands" in the black community were still actively boycotting. He insisted the boycott was more about KABC parent Disney than the individual host; he pointed out many Jewish executives of Disney and KABC, saying the issue was one between Jewish and black individuals. According to community activist Ted Hayes and Malaika Evans who used to associate with the Talking Drum Talking Drum's members have often used intimidation tactics against those who disagree with their views. Evans herself says she has been harassed after breaking with the group. Elder will still have an uphill battle in establishing himself as a national radio personality. Though talk radio thrives on controversy, a host like Schlessinger who emphasizes morals over politics has recently become more popular with listeners and advertisers than a conservative political commentator, such as Rush Limbaugh. The moralizing therapist is in more than 400 markets, and has been gaining steadily on Limbaugh since before her show was sold to Jacor for $71.5 million in September.
