Survey Shows TV Viewer Tired of Morbid Shows Actress Is >recsative Of Blessing HOLLYWOOD lAP) - When the movie "Hush, Hush, Sweet Charlotte" was on location near, Baton Rouge, La., a group ofi nuns visited the set. They were charmed by the hospitality of Bcttc Davis. As the nuns departed, they thanked her and one said: "God bless you, Miss Davis," With a typical wave in the Davis style, tiie actress replied: "Thank you. At this stage in my career, I can use every bit of help I can get." NEW YORK (AP) - The American viewer still loves television and has made it his boon companion of leisure hours, but he is becoming more selective about what he, watches and more critical of what he sees. While expressing satisfaction with television coverage of real events — news, specials and sports — he was disappointed in the past season's dramatic shows. He found them depressing, morbid, and concentrated on troubled personalities. He yearned for more rollicking escape-type dramatic shows. That, in essence, was the finding in an audience study of over fiOfl viewers in 14 different areas made by the. Chicago firm of Social Research. Inc., reported in the current issue of the trade magazine Broadcasting. On the happy side of the ledger, the report found the public was grateful for the "incredible array of top-notch, free entertainment available," appreciated ifs cultural influence, and is not crtmplaining so much those days about the. commercials. On the critical side, it noted the medical, psychiatric and social-illness themes in many dramatic programs — the report called the past year "the sick season" — and expressions of a desire for more shows with the good guys winning over the bad , guys — also more physical violence, of all things. The interviewers also found Smallest Theater i In N.Y. Employs | Pair Full-Time NEW YORK (AP) - The! smallest theater in the city has! room for only 26 spectators but; provides full-time work for the; two men who began it as a i hobby 12 years ago, Francis J. I'esc'hka and W. Gordon Murdock. The performers at the Little; Players arc five hand puppets,, operated hy Peskha, and from • October to May each season' present weekend repertory ranging from Shakespeare to opera ! for subscribers. i Originally shows were put on : for friends, but became so pop- 'ular that four years ago the two men quit other jobs, and, with the help of a foundation I grant, became marionette irn- i presarios. the audience was not as stimulated as they once were with comedy shows and variety programs. McHtigh and Hoffman, the Birmingham, Mich., television-radio consulting firm that commissioned the study, passed on the conclusion that this past season's high ratings of comedy and variety shows were in reality a measure of "how few of this year's television dramas have appealed to the broader American public." The "problem shows," they deduced, sent. the viewers flocking to comedy and variety for "refuge and relaxation."
