In contrast to ABC, which introduced 11 new series in September and moved several other shows to new time periods, Fox seemed to benefit by largely standing pat, scheduling just four new programs to avoid the new -season crush and returning most shows in the same time slot. "Time is precious to viewers," said Giles Lundberg, Fox's senior vice president of research and marketing. "To carve out another 30 minutes or 60 minutes for a new television program, it's really got to be worth their while." From a scheduling standpoint, all the networks have immediate trouble spots to consider including NBC, which may have spread its comedy troops too thin. NBC had cause for enthusiasm regarding the performance of such shows as "Caroline in the City" and "Suddenly Susan" Sept. 20, as well as "3rd Rock From the Sun," which moved to Wednesday and nearly equaled the audience for ABC's "The Drew Carey Show."

NBC's position as the top-rated network nevertheless appears to be in scant jeopardy, if only by default. Neither CBS nor ABC has caught fire early with new shows, and NBC will pad its season-long average by televising the Super Bowl and World Series perennially two of the year's highest-rated sports events. Coming off a disappointing year, ABC can probably rule out a rapid turnaround based on its initial results. The network still faces problems Thursday and Saturday nights, where it has introduced four new series, and faces a stiff challenge from NBC on Tuesdays, where ABC's "Hiller and Dill-er" a new comedy that occupies the key half-hour following "Home Improvement" didn't fare particularly well last week. ABC did see some growth in its Sunday performance from last year with "The Wonderful World of Disney" launch, the hit movie "Toy Story." Still, the overall rating came in short of expectations, and ABC won't have titles of that caliber to offer every week. The franchise will be watched closely, given its importance to Disney as the most overt manifestation of its role as ABC's corporate parent. CBS remains strong Saturday and Sunday behind such shows as "Walker, Texas Ranger," "60 Minutes" and "Touched by an Angel." The network even held its own . Thursday, providing an alternative to NBC's "Must-See TV" shows-with the Gerald McRaney drama "Promised Land" (which scored its. highest rating ever last week) and-. "Diagnosis Murder." j ' The network's biggest gamble,-however acquiring the ABC; shows "Family Matters" and "Step by Step" looks to have misfired, with few of the children and teenagers who favor those programs finding them on CBS' older-skew-, ing lineup. Last Friday, three times as many kids watched ABC's "Sa-, brina, the Teenage Witch" as "Family Matters," and totals, among teenagers were even more lopsided. From a financial standpoint, CBS also has to grapple at some point with the fact that its programs don't do as well in the younger age brackets sought by advertisers,, which most directly determine' prime-time profitability. : The next few weeks could pro-1 vide a window of opportunity for" ABC and CBS, with NBC and Fox each preempting regular program--ming certain nights to televise the Major League Baseball playoffs.1 Baseball principally appeals to men; and doesn't usually peak ratings-' wise until well into the League; Championship Series, with the-World Series to begin Oct. 18. Various forces are conspiring toi whittle away at the network audi-' ence, including cable and the, fledgling WB and UPN networks.-The WB scored record ratings. Monday with "Buffy the Vampire. Slayer," which lived up to its name, by actually winning its time period in Los Angeles on KTLA-TV, Channel 5. UPN remains a factor Wednesdays thanks to "Star Trek: Voyager" still the highest-rated program on either new network.
