3t GREELEY (Coto.) TRIBUNE Thurs., April 19,1S73 How did season turkey forecast hold up? By JAY 8HARBUTT AH Television Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Last September we issued our annual Fearless Forecast. It predicted -- or firmly hedged on -- which new TV shows we felt would or wouldn't survive for another season. Now that the networks are well into reruns, let us see how the Fearless Forecast held up. SUNDAY -- "Anna and the King" and "The Sandy Duncan Show," as predicted, expired. "M-A-S-H," forecast as a questionable starter next fall, will be back. No question about it. We get an accuracy score of 66 2-3ds per cent here. MONDAY - We said the "New Bill Cosby Show" would catch on and prosper. Oops. "The. Rookies" was declared too early to call. ABC called and said it'll be back this fall. Would you believe 25 per cent right? TUESDAY - "Maude" was declared doomed. Bad call. "Temperatures Rising," which also was counted out, also will return. But with a new star. Let's split the difference and give us 35 per cent right. WEDNESDAY - NBC's "Mystery Movie" got a 50-50- chance. Two shpws in Ihis trilogy were dismissed, but "Bana- cek" will return. "The Paul Lynde Show" was counted out and out it went. "The Julie Andrews Show" drew our go- ahead for a second season. ABC disputed the call. In fact, it up and cancelled the show. "Search" also was predicted to have a long life ahead. Wrong again. Call the accuracy rating 10 per cent. It makes us feel better somehow. THURSDAY -- "The Wai- tons" correctly was given a good chance of a second season. "The Men" was given little chance and subsequently got the big ax. One hundred per cent right here. t'KIDAY - "Little People" drew a second-season forecast. The forecast was right. Not so for "Ghost Story," which was declared a tossup and later tossed out. "Banyon," given a year at most, expired in mid- season. We'll grade this at 33 1- 3ds per cent. SATURDAY -- "Bridget Loves Bernie" was given three years. CBS sure fooled me. It tossed the thing out. However, "The Bob Newhart" and "Streets of San Francisco" series were called definite second-season entries, and the networks agreed. Rate this day's forecast at (J6 2-3ds per cent. Totaling things up with the help of a pocket calculator -he's a gnome we keep in the vest to work the abacus -- we come up with a 47.5 per cent accuracy rating. Or maybe 23.9 per ceil. Or somewhere in betweeni The gnome is new on the job and a bit dim to boot. However, we have an idea how to ilnprove next year's score. BulWe'll need the help of every vtewer who tells the rating services what shows his family is wafching every night. What we'd like these viewers to do is simple: when the fall season begins.Kust tell the rating services You've decided against watching anything for a year and are listening to radio instead. That will help \he Fearless Forecast no end. George Burns still on stage By MARY CAMPBELL AP Newsfeatures Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- George Burns has some advice for young people starting in show business: "Stay with it. But," he adds, "I think if they don't make it by 77, they should go into some other business." Burns, for years best known as straight man for his wife Gracie Allen, at 77 is more or less starting a new career. He has a recording out, "A Musical Trip with George Burns," and he gave his first concert as a singer in New York's Philharmonic Hall. The record prigi- nally came out, with then-current hits of the Beatles and Rolling Stones, etc., in 1968. Burns' says sales of the reissue prove that he was ahead of his time. "Then, nobody bought the album except my sister Goldie and I had to buy it back from her the next week." Things are different now than when he was young in show business, Burns says. Then, before radio or TV, a song might Thursday evening take three years to become a hit and equally as long to.fade away. A person might stay in vaudeville for years, never realizing whether he had talent or not, while today a recording can come out, sell enough copies so the artist has enough money to retire and the next week disappear so he has to write a new song to remain in the public eye. He wouldn't want to be retired. Burns says, or even semi-retired, which he decided he'd try a few years ago. "You get old too fast. "Jack Benny just bought $30,000 worth of rosin. We're going to stay around. We're booked." George Burns and Jack Benny have been friends more than 50 years. How have they stayed friends? Easy, Burns says. "He tells me I'm a great singer and 1 tell him he's a great violinist." Burns recounts a usual Los Angeles day's routine. "I get up early, have orange juice and coffee, smoke a cigar to loosen up my vocal chords. I go to my office at 10:30. At 121 quit. I go NEW YORK (AP) - Remarks a widower gets tired of hearing: "You'll love to meet her, Joe--she's just your type." "You've got to quit thinking of the past. After all, you're still a young man--comparatively speaking, anyway." "Why don't you come eat with us tonight, Joe? Me and the missus aren't speaking, and maybe you could help break the deadlock." "Listen, old pal, will you do a buddy a favor? How about me borrowing your apartment tonight? You could go to the movies or something." "How's your love life, kid? A guy with his own salary to spend -- I'll bet you have to beat them away with a baseball bat." "You'll thank me later for introducing you to her, Joe. She sews her own clothes and likes opera." "This is the second time you've had us up here this month, sir. Don't you know you're not supposed to try to flush hot grease and paper towels down the toilet simply because you sink is full of dishes?" "Did you ever think you might be too particular, Joe? You know you're not getting any younger, and beggars can't be choosers." p.m. 6:30-- 2 Andy Griffith 4 Holly wood Squares 6 Art Studio 7 American Adventure 9 Amazing Kreskin 7:00-- 2Truth, Consequences 4 Flip Wilson 6 Beautiful Machine 7 National Geographic 9 Mod Squad 7:30-- 2 Dragnet 6 Insight 8:00-- 2Bonanza 4 Bob Hope 6 Humanities 7 CBS Movie 9 KungFu 9:00-- 2 News 4 Dean Martin 9 Streets of San Fran 10:00-- 2Movie 4 Eyewitness News 7 News 9 News 10:30--4 Tonight Show 10:35--7 Movie 11:00--6 Inform 9 Possession 12:00--4 Joyce Brothers 12:30-4 Yawn Patrol 9 Its Your Bet Friday evening p.m. 6:30--2 Andy Griffith 4 Price Is Right 6 Week in Perspective 7 Bobby Goldsboro 7:00--2 Truth, Consequences 4 Sanford and Son 6 Future Is Now 7 Soney and Cher 1 9 Brady Bunch 7:30--2 Dragnet 4 Little People 6 Book Beat 9 Partridge Family 8:00--2 Bonanza 4 Circle of Fear 6 Week in Review 7 Movie 9 Room 222 8:30--6 Black Journal 9 Jose Jimenez 9:00--2 News 4 The Champions 6 Masterpiece Theater 9:30-9 ABC Special 10:00--2 Science Fiction 4 Eyewitness News 6 World Press 7 News 9 News 10:30-4 Tonight Show 6 Silent Years 10:35--7 Movie 11:00-9 In Concert ll:10-2Sci-Fi-Flix 12:00-4 Midnight Special 12:30-9 It's Your Bel 12:35-7 Laic Movie 2:35-7 All Night Movies » to the H,llcrest Country Club , ;You ^ , t he , s t for lunch.

I lost my father-in-law last month, and I been wondering if you wouldn't like to help console my mother-in-law.
