ET_F_13_F13_LA_1_07-17-02_we_1_CMYK 2002:07:16:14:51:24 TODAY ON TV B aseball took center stage in prime time last week, though its batting average was decidedly mixed, with strong ratings by cable standards for ESPN’s coverage of the “Home Run Derby” but record-low viewing of the All- Star Game on Fox, based on viewing estimates issued Tuesdayby Nielsen Media Research. Even with a lower slugging percentage—sliding 9% below last year—the All-Star Game topped all programs. Meanwhile, “Home Run Derby” averaged 7.7 million viewers to lead cable fare, which would have placed it No. 33 among programs on the broadcast networks last week. CBS’ “Big Brother 3,” meanwhile, opened to a respectable audience last Wednesday— beating Fox’s “American Idol” in head-to-head competition—then dropped sharply on Thursday and Saturday. Viewing of the three-times-a- week unscripted series has tended to fluctuate—especially on weekends. HBO’s Robin Williams special and TNT’s movie “Door to Door,” starring William H. Macy, also attracted significant audiences Sunday. NBC cashed in with a Saturday telecast of “Men in Black”—timed to the sequel’s release—while ABC corralled its largest Monday night movie summer audience in three years with “The Horse Whisperer.” Brian Lowry Baseball Dips, but It Scores National Nielsen Viewership Here are the rankings for national prime- time network television last week (July 8-14) as compiled by Nielsen Media Research. They are based on the average num- ber of people who watched a program from start to finish. Nielsen estimates there are 269 million potential viewers in the U.S. age 2and older. Viewership is listed in millions.

TONIGHT,TOM’WAT7:30 OSCAR FELIX ANewLookat THEODD COUPLE BY NEILSIMON DIRECTED BY PETERBONERZ seat theater in North Hollywood, and the most probing question from the floor was why booze isn’t served at events. Then again, a few of those who do take part tend to get carried away, leading during the past few years to internal feuds in which anonymous letters have circulated among board members. At times, these shenanigans have been more entertaining than most of the sitcoms in Emmy contention, but they may also have fed a perception that getting involved might be more trouble than it’s worth. Another major question mark hovers over who will televise the Emmys and how much they’ll pay for those rights. An agreement under which the four leading broadcast networks share the show on a rotating basis expires this year, and sources say preliminary talks about a new deal began this week. Academy officials—citing the $50-million and $20-million annual fees, respectively, reaped by the Oscars and Grammys—have stated a desire to significantly increase the $3 million or so the Em- mys earn, which provides more than a quarter of the group’s revenue. Unfortunately, going for the gold comes with a risk. In the past, the academy has raised its fee by striking exclusive deals with a single network, but doing so alienated rival broadcasters, who threatened to boycott the ceremony. Academy negotiators thus find themselves between the proverbial rock and hard place. Sure, the networks love being honored with awards, but tight-fisted executives aren’t of a mind to spend more for anything as their stock prices tumble. Yet seeking a more lucrative deal elsewhere—perhaps even at a cable network—would not only deny some viewers access to the show but also undermine it as a unified celebration of television’s best. For all these headaches, the academy does considerable good that shouldn’t be overlooked. Its charitable foundation oversees college internships and awards as well as the Archive of American Television—a noble endeavor that remembers the industry’s pioneers (even if current TV executives have forgotten) by conducting and preserving lengthy interviews with them. Moreover, though fans often quibble over choices and oversights—including a historic stodginess when it comes to recognizing new talent—the Emmys can at least point to a relatively pristine voting process and telecast, setting them apart in notable ways from other TV awards. That includes the People’s Choice and TV Guide Awards—where winners are tipped off in advance to ensure their attendance—or the Golden Globes, which despite gaining prestige since moving to NBC still seem to correlate strongly with the size of stars’ “Q” popularity scores and studio gift baskets. Installing a president empowered to implement goals and bring continuity to the organization would certainly be a step in the right direction, as would securing a TV deal providing a respectable bump in pay that doesn’t require shifting the Emmy telecast to the Outdoor Life Network. So load up the coffeemaker and set the alarm for before dawn if you’re desperate to know who’s up for an Emmy. If you’re awaiting answers regarding the academy’s behind-the-scenes dramas, however, you might just want to stay in bed. Brian Lowry’s column appears Wednesdays.
