TV-AMUSEMENTS Tuesday, August 30, 1983 Albuquerque Journal Page 11, Section A TV Rating Services Differ on Who's Gaining Today's Crossword Puzzle KOAT- I V Channel 7 continues to be Albuquerque's most-watched station, both for news and for prime-time programs, according to the just-released ratings figures for July. However, one of the services shows the station's newscasts losing viewers, while the other finds that they are gaining viewers. And KOB general manager Max Sklower questions whether either set of figures is really accurate. Let's start with Arbitron. The 10 p.m. news ratings showed Channel 7 w ith a 37 share, compared to a 44 share in May. (A 37 share means that 37 percent of the people watching TV at 10 p.m. were watching Channel 7.) KOB had a 24 share (compared to 23 in May), while KGGM had a 10 (the same as in May). At 6 p.m., Arbitron shows KOAT down from a 37 share in May to a 30 share in July, with KOB up slightly from a 24 to a 26 share. (KGGM's now-defunct 6 p.m. "Stopwatch" program had an 8 share in July. It has since been replaced by an expanded early evening newscast.) The Nielsen figures show quite a different trend, according to that service, Channel " is up both at 6 p.m. (from 29 in May to 3 in July) and at 10 p.m. (from 34 in May to 35 in July). Nielsen, like Arbitron, shows Channel 4 holding relatively steady a 24 share at 6 p.m. (the same as in May) and a 24 share at 10 p.m. compared to a 26 in May. It shows KGGM remaining anemic with an 8 share. Channel 7 remains in first place overall in prime time (from 7-10 p.m.), but both services show a closer race than the May numbers indicated. According to Arbitron, the ABC affiliate has a 23 share in prime time, down from its 27 share in May. KOB-TV, Channel 4, remains in second place with a 21 share, compared to a 24 share in May. KGGM-TV, Channel 13, had a 20 share, compared to a 22 in May. KNME Jeane Dixon's Horoscope Tom Jacobs TVRadio Writer Channel 5 and KGSW Channel 14 each averaged a 3 share for prime time, while KNAT Channel 23 had a 3 Nielsen shows that Channel " had a 23 share, down from 25 in May. KOB had a 20, down from 23 in May, KGGM had a 20, identical to May. KNME. KGSW and KNAT each averaged a 6 share for the prime-time hours (Mon.-Sat 7-10 p.m. and Sunday, 6-10 pm.) Not surprisingly, both KOAT and KOB chose to play up the figures that make their stations look best Channel 4 emphasized the Arbitron ratings, with promotion manager Pan Klintworth saying they show "We are holding our own, but they (Channel 7) are losing viewers " KOAT's Max Sklower expressed suspicion of the Arbitron figures, however, saying that the ratings service based its figures on an unusually small number of households In fact, he is unsure of the accuracy of either set of figures, saying "the sample sizes are too low in both of them " He added that even if his station has lost viewers at 10 p.m., that is due in part to the fact that, nationally. ABC's prime time ratings this summer have been dow n That being the case. "We came out better than I had hoped for," he said "Thicke- of the Night." the new talkvanetv hiw starring Canadian talk show host Alan Thicke, will be seen in most markets opposite Johnny Carson's "Tonight Show " Industry observers are calling the Thicke program the most serious challenge in years to Carson's dominance of the Lite night time period In Albuquerque, however. Thicke will be seen (beginning Monday night) from s to 10 30 pm on Channel 23 The Carson show, of course, comes on at 10 30 on Channel 4 Since Channel 23 is "ow ned in part bv Johnny Carson, the obvious question is whether the Thicke show has been programmed earlier to avoid a head to-head match up According to KNAT Station Manager Bob Brewer, the answer is no He said Carson has not interfered m the station's program ming, and added that the Thicke program is being scheduled for v pm " we think it'll work there " - ' Brewer feels the whole "Thicke vs Carson" controversy is overblown He believes that Thicke will attract a younger, "hipper" v lewers than Carson, and finds it unlikclv that the Canadian would steal many "Tonight Show" viewers "We think it's going to be the type of show that creates an audience." he said Besides "Thicke of the Night." KNAT s fall week day schedule will consist of -police Woman" with Angle Dickinson at 5 p m . "Alice" at 6. 'Taxi" at n 30, "Hawaii Kive-O" at "Oumcy " at S. Benin Hill" at 10 30 and mo ies at 11 Canceled 'Cajinev & Lacev' Mav Get New Life as loie YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY: Dynamic action in October and November will propel you up the career ladder Cultivate talented associates and you could put together a championship team.

'Young man, what are we g mg to do to save that show''"' Rosenzweig said "He's quite a fan We talked about some possible sti itegv "Even as a failure, the series attracted 25 million viewers every week It had a v ry activ e audience, not unlike the audience for Star Trek ! think audience can be counted on to go to a Cagncy & I-aeey' movie." Rosenzweig said his chances of selling Orion, primarily a motion picture production company, on backing the project were "medium " " Television has to put something on the air " he said "Movies don't Thev can be more selective W Today Channels with select programs from Albuquerque and El Paso stations, ail programs listed will not tf shown E after HBO channels indicates eastern scheduling cycle, programs are shown three hours earlier than listed times FOR COMPLETE ALBUQUERQUE AND EL PASO descriptive listings, check the Journal's Entertainer magatine every Friday.
