R $795 JsALt #650 S TV film successfully tackles bowl games NEW YORK (AP) - CBS' female- appeal movie "Intimate Strangers" bowled over the college football competition on NBC and ABC and keyed the second-ranked network to its third weekly ratings victory of the season, according to figures released this week by the A.C. Nielsen Co. This year, football-filled New Year's Day fell on Wednesday, normally one of CBS' weakest nights, providing the network an opportunity to counter-program against the prime-time perennials — the Orange Bowl and Sugar Bowl. "It was savvy scheduling," said Gerald Jaffe, NBC's vice president for research projects. "If CBS had gone with its regular series throughout the night, they wouldn't have won the week." Last year, CBS' theatrical movie "Victor-Victoria" was able to capitalize on the male-favored New Year's bowl games. "Intimate Strangers," starring Terri Garr as an MIA nurse who escapes from Vietnam after 10 years, pre-empted regular CBS series and was the week's No. 3 show with a 26.4 rating, the fourth best movie performance of the 1985-86 season. Meanwhile, NBC's Orange Bowl, which determined the national championship when Oklahoma beat Perm State, ranked 14th with a 21.3 rating. ABC's Sugar Bowl matching Miami and Tennessee was 61st out of 63 shows with a 6.8 rating. For the week, CBS had five shows in the Top 10 and averaged an 18.7 rating. NBC had the other five highest ranked programs, including the No. 1 "Cosby Show," and finished with a 17.9. No. 3 ABC didn't have a single program in the Top 25 and averaged a 12.0, the worst regular season performance since ABC had an 11.9 New Year's Week one year ago. The calendar played havoc with ABC's already weak prime-time schedule. It was the first week with- 1 out "Monday Night Football," ABC's normally winning Tuesday night lineup was deflated by low viewing on New Year's Eve, and the network's most popular series, "Dynasty," was pre-empted by the Sugar Bowl. "The Cosby Show" was the most popular program for the week of Dec. 30-Jan. 5, gaining a 34.9 rating and a 50 share. A rating measures the percentage of the nation's 85.9 million homes with television. A share measures the percentage of homes with their sets on that are tuned in. The bottom five shows, in descending order, were NBC's news magazine, "American Almanac," and CBS' canceled "Stir Crazy," which tied for 53th, the Sugar Bowl game, ABC's canceled "Our Family Honor" and ABC's "Shadow Chasers." Exactly midway through the 30- week regular prime-time season, NBC leads with a 17.6 rating to CBS' 16.8 and ABC's 15.3.
