Hewitt also said that CBS executives have discussed the possibility of creating a second prime-time edition of "60 Minutes," as ABC recently did with "2020." But he added that such an addition was unlikely. "The problem is not finding the on-air talent," Hewitt said. "But it's difficult to find 20 producers worth their salt who could turn out what we already turn out on '60 Minutes.' It's really a team effort, and it would really depend on finding those 20 producers." Hewitt announced that "60 Minutes" will be close-captioned in Spanish beginning Sunday. The Spanish subtitles will be provided by the Boston-based Caption Center, which already provides English-language captioning on CBS programs for the deaf and hearing-impaired. "I'm thrilled to finally be able to say to a large portion of this country, ' "60 Minutes" speaks your language.' " Such captions are transmitted in the same broadcast signal that carries picture and sound, but can only be accessed by using the remote control (on TV sets sold since 1993) or a special decoder box (on sets sold before 1993). Hollywood Film Fest Accepting Entries Submissions of independent feature films, short films, documentaries and animated and new media works are being accepted for the second Hollywood Film Festival. The festival will take place in August. The deadline is May 30. Submissions should be sent to Hollywood Film Festival, 433 N. Camden Drive, Suite 600, Beverly Hills, CA 90210. NBC, Fox's 'McBeal' Off to Impressive '98 Starts "Ceinfeld," "ER," "Dateline NBC" and the O Harrison Ford movie "The Fugitive" started the 1998 ratings chase with a solid win for NBC, while ABC took last week's silver medal behind the U.S. Figure Skating Championships, according to results issued Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. In a case of good news-bad news for CBS, which will air the upcoming Winter Olympics, ABC's figure skating coverage dominated Saturday but cut into CBS' "The Magnificent Seven," which lost about 30 of the audience that viewed its premiere. One of the week's more impressive performances, meanwhile, was delivered Jan. 5 by Fox's "Ally McBeal," starring Callista Flockhart, which drew 3 million more people than "Melrose Place" preceding it the show's highest rating to date. ABC also did reasonably well with its new Monday lineup of "America's Funniest Home Videos" and "2020," as the veteran newsmagazine roughed up CBS' "George & Leo" and the premiere of "Style & Substance." "Dateline NBC" then soared at 10 p.m. to its biggest audience ever, attracting more viewers that hour than "The Practice" and a "Brooklyn South" rerun combined. Despite all the hoopla surrounding the show's planned departure in May, "Seinfeld's" audience didn't reflect an immediate jump over its average this season. BRIAN LOWRY National Nielsen Viewership Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (Jan. 5-1 1) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research. They are based on the average number of people who watched a program from start to finish. Nielsen estimates that there are 254 million potential U.S. viewers age 2 and older. Viewership is listed here in millions. 1. Seinfeld NBC 32.86 2. ER NBC 32.23 3. Veronica's Closet NBC 25.74 4. Touched by an Angel CBS 24.05 5. Friends NBC 23.66 6. The X-Files FOX 21.37 7.
