Marilyn Fletcher, who is operations manager at WTIP-WTIO, writes to tell me that she is in full agreement - and that the repeated (and repeated and repeated ad nau- seum) pleas for the Girls Clubs of America, the National Safety Council, the American Cancer Society, etc. are the fault not of the local stations but of the network. . "You would certainly expect a large network (such as NBC) to do their homework as well or better than we do," she says, "but such is not the case." And WTIP General Manager Mel Burka tells me that he has asked and asked and asked the network to change the public service messages but to no avail. "I think the trouble," he said, "is laziness." Anyway, it's nice to know that the station recognizes the problem and is trying, at least, to correct it -- although without network cooperation there's little they can do. Just one more thing, Marilyn and Mel -- who do we contact about throwing away those nauseous Certs commercials? The fall television season opens Sept. 8 -- officially. But NBC-TV is planning to steal a march on the opposition by launching four new shows a week ahead of time. On Sept. 4, NBC will premiere "The Montefuscos," "Fay" and a new two-hour episode of "Medical Story." On Sept. 7, the network will show the first episode of "The Family Holvak." CBS will get an even earlier start with its "Upstarrs Downstairs" copy, "Beacon Hill." That will begin Aug. 26. erage of six hours and 11 minutes a day which seems like a lot. But it gets us no better than a second place tie with Canada in the world television watching sweepstakes. Honors, according to Les Brown of the New York Times, go to the Japanese who watch television an average of seven hours and 17 minutes each day. The Japanese, according to Brown, are the hands down winners for looking at television in the morning. Five of Japan's 10 most popular shows are on the air between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. Television mad citizens of the United States watch the tube an av- Brown also tells me that the single program with the largest audience in television history is -guess what - "The Wizard of Oz." "Of the thousands of movies that have played on network television," writes Brown, "the 25 all time highest rated are led, in order, by 'Airport,' 'Love Story,' 'The Godfather' (second half), 'The Poseidon Adventure,' 'True Grit,' 'The Birds,' 'Patton,' 'The Bridge On The River Kwai,' 'The Godfather'(first half), and'BenHur.' In llth place is 'The Wizard of Oz,' for its telecast in December, 1959. It is also in 12th place for January 1964 showing. And in 14th place (January, 1965), and in 16th :November, 1956), and 21st (December, 196Z) and 23rd (January, 1960) and 25th (December, 1961)." That makes seven .times "The Wizard of Oz" has been on the top 25 list. While most movies have no more than two, sometimes three, network plays before being syndicated to local stations, "The Wizard of Oz" has been on the network (networks, really, since it's been featured by CBS and NBC) a total of 16 times and recently was sold for five more showings on CBS at a price of around $1 million per showing.
