NBC was still last week's ratings champ, as "ER" returned from its spring vacation to emerge as the top-rated show, more than doubling combined viewing of ABC and CBS news programs in its time period. The network's "Fired Up," starring "NYPD Blue's" Sharon Lawrence, premiered after "Seinfeld" with results about on par with those for previous occupants of that coveted slot. In terms of other series premieres, Fox's latest Aaron Spelling soap, "Pacific Palisades," won its time period with viewers age 18-34 but attracted fewer people than "Party of Five" recently has in that hour, while ABC's dramas "Gun" and "Leaving L.A." got off to slow starts on Saturday. And CBS' "Orleans" continues to do poorly, losing nearly 30 of the audience that watched "JAG." CBS also experimented with some success airing "Chicago Hope" and "Early Edition" in place of its Sunday movie. Programmers are considering a shift to series that night next season, seeking to break up the three-way movie logjam on ABC, CBS and NBC. -BRIAN LOWRY National Nielsen Vtewership Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (April 7-13) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research.

' ' "'I ' itfiirraflg"iirr" r ' ft "1 ' ' ALEX G AFJCIA Los Angelee Times John Wayne "was playful and good natured," Clark Sharon says. From the Sands of Newport According to "John Wayne: On Board With the Duke," if the actor hadn't visited Balboa Island in 1926, he never would have been in the movies. He was a 19-year-old USC freshman on a football scholarship. He came down to Balboa on spring break and tore the muscles in his shoulder while bodysurfing. Because of his injuries, he was dropped from the team, lost his scholarship and was forced to leave school. He took a $35-a-week job in the prop department at Fox Studios, where he met director John Ford, who gave him his first roles, as an extra in several movies. D.M. Continued from F2 "I thought it was very fantastic and generous. That kind of generosity you never forget. I think it's important to help and to inspire young people to have the courage to stand in front of the dancers and say, 'Make a step here and a step there and try to do this.'

To help offset the high costs of operation and maintenance, Wayne began chartering the boat to such friends as Dean Martin and leasing it out as a floating prop for movies. Sharon was a newspaper reporter when he met Wayne in 1975. After Wayne's death, he served as a Wild Goose crew member on charter cruises. He hatched the idea for the documentary at Planet Hollywood in Santa Ana on Dec. 31, 1993, over lunch with an old friend, computer specialist Bill Le Due. Sharon had recently finished the book with Minshall and mentioned to Le Due that he still had access to "all these great home movies" of Wayne. "It would be fun to do a movie," he said, almost as an afterthought. Le Due asked Sharon what the budget would be. Sharon picked a figure out of the air, and Le Due said he'd "kick in $30,000 to get it started. I about choked on my hamburger," Sharon recalls. "It's funny how quickly your mind will shift gears. I said to myself, 'Wait a minute. Maybe this is possible.' " Le Due's $30,000 was seed money for the production, which cost more than $100,000. "As I forged ahead on the project, I'd run out of money and have to raise more," Sharon says. "I was surprised actually how people would jump in." He noted that all six of his backers lived in Orange County and were impressed that, for 14 years, Wayne had lived here too. In the process of making the documentary, Sharon made one foray to Los Angeles to have the Super 8 movies transferred to broadcast-quality videotape. The rest of the work was done at Orange County locations. Sharon, who attended Cal State Fullerton on a partial music scholarship, shares the musical direction credit for the video with an old high school band buddy, Jim Ishii,a musician, composer and arranger from Santa Ana. According to the video, Wayne once said to his daughter Aissa: "When I die, I don't want to miss the ocean. I want to stay here. I want to be cremated when I die. Then take me out and scatter me over the sea because that's where i my heart is." He didn't get his wish. He is buried in an unmarked grave on a hill overlooking Newport Beach. But the Wild Goose, sold about a week before he died, is still berthed in Newport Harbor, where it is available to the public as a charter party boat. m"John Wayne: On Board With the Duke" is avaUable for $19.95, plus shipping and handling charges, by calling (800) 333-2042.
