B y J A Y SIIARBUTT NEW YOliK '(AP) -- When the A:C. Nielsen ratings company asked a J'.auhattan family 10 keep a diary of its television watching for a week, the young man .on the phone accepter readily. He wanted Eo see liow the system works, so he didn' loll the company that the man they were looking for - hi grandfather --- had been dcai 11 years. .. He only .explained that hi home had three residents ant three black and white TV sets. And so 1 it came to pass tha he, - his 23year-old sister their -13-year bid mother eac were mailed a N'ielsen diary, covered a period from 6 p.m on Thursday. 1 March 15. to 1:5 a.m. on Thursday, .March.25. : They had become a Niclse family in ' America's larges richest television market. Nrelscn says it mailed 3,700 willing viewers in the New York area in'March.

They aren't part oT the na tional Nielsen surveys of viewing habits, which are done" in two ways. One is with an Au- dimeter, hooked to TV sets in 1,230 homes. It records what is watched, but not who is watching: The "other method is a diary kept by 2,400 across the United Stales. Each "diarist records who is watching what and 'when. Each son ally delivered [ying n ial shows, And they put down lhat they an wnlch programs on seven 'IIP channels"-- three stations cing ncUs'ork-owned -- and our UHF channels. For their'help, they 'received "token" of Nielsen's appre- ialion -- four.' quarters. We have' 'given , them false names for this article -- the 2.1- 'ear-old will be called "Jack," lis : sister. ;; "Jill," -and their nolhor "Prudence.". What sort of jurors were they? Ideal, from one stand point: Their age span was 21 to 43. The networks consider view ers aged 10 to 49 the most de sirable audience. Such folk usually Iiave more money I' spend (lian ether age groups. Two other pluses; Each wa employed and each was atlcnt illg college, a,good combinatio of spending power and beltei than-average education. A check of their diarie showed that Jack, Jill and Pri deuce bad, over a week's time watched a : total of 42 hours o - - TV. Nielsen says that wa households. H | )0 - u i lne average for a hous will affect n l ) W ; l n 1975,. . B u t the networks didn't far loo well. The jurors only saw hours of network program only yfi hours of that in prin evening time, and they watche no daytime network shows all on weekdays. They also proved no fans local TV news programs fered by Fun City's si* coi mercial stations. They didn watch any. .Nor did they wat diary is per by a Nielsen agent who gels from each louschold data dear to adverti- PIS -- ige c e\ education in ome, that sort of thing. Nielsen says t h e ' nulicina! liaries 'cover 34 weeks of view ng. with only a third of the 2, 400 homes filling in diaries on a given week. The rest have to vait their turn. BY CONTRAST By contrast, our New; York area Nielsen farmlj on|v got lo fill in the diarv for a week no more. The family's fun ended March 25. The results of the survey won't be available to Nielsen subscribers until * this week The family put down their ige sex nee Ihe non-English languages (bey speak -- Czecl and French, in this case -- am the language they speak when together, English, They also noted the number of TV. sets in their home.' that all three sets worked: and that one was plugged in to both cable TV and to Home Box Of- any show, early-morning not even NBC's nelwo Tod a; sliow .

"Because I find the programs are so much better," she said briskly.
