The CBS romance, pairing James Garner and Julie Andrews, capped a week in which feature films also exhibited their ability to attract mass TV audiences despite prior exposure on pay cable, video or even a network. NBC ranked first Saturday thanks to its seventh annual airing of "Home Alone" and fared well Sunday especially among National Nielsen Ylewershlp Here are the rankings for national prime-time network television last week (Nov. 22-28) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research.

"Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" closed its 18-day run with record tune-in Wednesday, and having the quiz show precede "Dharma & Greg" Nov. 23 yielded a best-ever rating for that series.

We have no way of knowing the outcome exactly with certainty." Duh! Talk about dense. When he said that, you looked for his lo-botomy scars, for having "no way of knowing the outcome" was exactly the point. It was and always is the compelling argument against such live coverage. No safety net, no controls, just free-fall. It's Russian roulette all over again. Why not, as more responsible Los Angeles stations did, tape the shooting, think about it, and then decide whether to include it in a newscast, instead of instantly beaming it live? An ongoing separate issue is whether live chopper coverage of such freeway chases is warranted, shootrhg or not. Nearly always, as in this case, the answer remains no. On the face, the coverage is ludicrous, serving a viewerdom that delivers a mixed message by watching the same TV mayhem that it so frequently protests. Call it the mayhem some of America loves to hate. Once his station committed to covering the Thayer chase live, KTLA news director Jeff Wald said in a Times story Saturday, it had an obligation to show the outcome, no matter how violent. "Otherwise," he insisted, "we get into the position of censoring the news." Say what? As if he and other TV news executives don't make decisions every day about what to cover and what not to cover? If they aren't "censoring," as he put it, they aren't doing their jobs. This did not occur in a vacuum. It was only last year that Los Angeles stations telecast live a suicidal, partially nude fugitive motorist pulling the trigger of a shotgun on a freeway overpass and leaving his brains on the pavement. They anguished about that, too. So much so that some vowed to consider using a seven-second delay mechanism in future live coverage of volatile incidents. But that was last year, and Friday was Friday. Amnesia prevailed. No seven-second delay. Not everyone was sorry. "We feel very good about the way we handled this," KNBC news director Nancy Bauer Gonzales told The ; Times. Well, as long as she feels ' good. As police swarmed over the downed Thayer, Shocknek (surely following orders), asked the KNBC chopper "to pull out your shot a Openings Continued from F3 Three Nights of Percussion, soloist Schick performs music by Kai-ja Saariaho, George Lewis, Javier Alvarez, Roger Reynolds and Vin-ko Globokar. 7:30 p.m. USC Early Music Ensemble (Alfred Newman Recital Hall, USC, 213 740-7111).

We don't need to see it quite that close." But viewers did need to see the shooting "that close"? On at least two occasions after the shooting, Shocknek (again surely heeding instructions), also issued warnings to parents, verbalizing KNBC's public service mode. "If you're a parent and! if watching this is too intense for you," said caring Uncle Kent, "you may want to leave the room if you're watching with youngsters. We know you will act responsibly on their behalf as we show you live pictures of the final outcome of this chase." And a bit later "If you are a parent with young children in the room, we know this is a school-off day because of the Thanksgiving holiday. You're going to want to act responsibly for the kids' sake. You know what is too intense for them to see and not to see. So please be a responsible viewer."

They were golden if you liked 15-minute newscasts. They were golden if you liked quiz shows that were rigged.

Of course, there were exceptions, one being "Omnibus," a weekly magazine (black and white and mostly live) whose diverse and classy menu of arts, literature, science, history and entertainment is unmatched by any single series today. "Omnibus" was its own golden age. That comes across in Friday's rewarding special, "Omnibus: Television's Golden Age," narrated by Hume Cronyn, who, with his late wife, Jessica Tandy, performed on "Omnibus," whose sleek, urbane, informed, highly literate and involved host was a Brit named Al-istair Cooke. His fame would grow later during years of speaking for "Masterpiece Theatre." Included in this retrospective are Mike Nichols and Elaine May, Leonard Bernstein moving musicians like chess pieces in inventively dissecting Beethoven's Fifth Symphony, musings by Frank Lloyd Wright and amazing action X-rays of humans doing such things as eating and digesting food. Created by Robert Saudek, "Omnibus" was on commercial television, incredibly, airing Sundays from 1952 to 1956 on CBS and ABC respectively, and irregularly on NBC from 1957 to 1961. - The series moved to the TV rhythms of an earlier era. If operating today, how would it approach last week's live chase coverage? Perhaps by X-raying the brains of those responsible for it. "Omnibus: Television's Golden Age" can be seen Friday at 9 p.m. on KCET. Howard Rosenberg's column Appears Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
