(AP) "Sometimes you get the feeling we're all by ourselves," said Tom Snyder of his "Tomorrow" show, aired at 1 to 2 a.m. "Our available audience is only 10 per cent of any other network show because of the time period." But this doesn't deter Snyder, known for his brash questioning of guests, raucous wit and opinionated re- joiners. "People ask me if it bothers me that Tomorrow' has a small audience," he explained. "I say even if you work for a 250-watt station you owe the audience the best you can give them. "That's why it's so disappointing when a show turns into a turkey. You know it's a turkey. You know it the first five minutes." Few of his guests have ; been failures, but then there was the man who was a champion eater. "We were on the air before we realized you can't talk and eat at the same time," he sighed. NBC estimates that be- iuui dim nvc numon television viewers watch the one-hour "Tomorrow" show Monday through Thursday. "The Midnight Special," which really cleared the way for late-late-night television, runs Fridays. "Tomorrow" - nremiered.0ct^l5 after NBC executives decided there was an audience of insomniacs, young people and shift workers they could tap. "Tomorrow" isn't straight news like "Today" or pure entertainment like "Tonight." It is somewhere in between, with nationally Miuwirnewsriiakers and Snyder's light-headed approach. "There's no script or format," Snyder says. "All I have are a few pages of notes. I feel the key to a show like this is listening to people and hopefully they'll listen tc yo»: . ."It's .conversation,. not a question and answer show. Snyder, 38, who is also anchorman of KNBC-TV's "Six O'Clock News" in Los Angeles, said he doesn't i;ir~ ·· _. · · · _ _ _ _ _ ,, .nvC'lO" -go'into"tlie"shows with prepared lists of questions. »· "When Martha Mitchell was our guest we had quite a few clippings," he said. "You can figure out what to ask. All the notes went out the window. "She has such a scattergun mind. Not scatterbrained. I mean she goes from one subject into the next with such facility. "But I go in with something in mind : wuj; ^ ost guests you have a pretty good idea of what they want to talk about. But thev H~-'* fake Howard Hughes autobiography, and a mother and daughter who talked about their liberal sexual attitudes. What does he look for in a guest? "First of all, people whose mouths work," he said. "People who can say something without a long preamble and long-winded rhetoric that doesn't say anything." The show is taped at 9:30 p.m. at NBC's Burbank studios, although sometimes Snyder takes the show on the road. He has been to New York, the Tennessee State Prison, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville and on a tour of nighttime Los Angeles. He plans soon to go to Las Vegas. There is no studio audience, although one was tried during the New York visit. "The audience at home at I a.m. has had it with applause signs and hooplah," he reasoned. "They like a quiet show." »· The 6-foot-5 Snyder came to Los Angeles from Philadelphia in 1970 to anchor the "Six O'Clock News." A few years earlier he had_been uicu uy anotner Los Angeles station because Louella Parsons beat him to the air with the announcement that Debbie Reynolds had given birth. When he took over the KNBC news show it was behind in the ratings. Snyder's manner pushed it into the top spot. The NBC flagship station in New York tried to lure him there, but he turned down the job. While Snyder is witty, he contends he is not a "happy news" anchorman. But he doesn't hold with doomsday reporting and acting as if the news was written on stone tablets. "I think it just comes out of me," he said. "I've never had any trouble talking. Sometimes it takes a long time to get my foot out of my mouth." Snyder has been the object of speculation and rumor that he wants to succeed Johnny Carson on "Tonight" or that he will be the new host of "Today." But he says, "I don't have any great ambitions to go beyond where 1 am now. Johnny Carson does that show so fine, so well. I can't do those things he does. My background is news and information. I don't think I'd be comfortable or could do it well/' As for the "Today" show, he said he finds it too struc- "tured and rigid for the freedom and flexibility he likes. "I hear all the rumors," he says. "I try not to get caught up in it. I hear I'm supposed to go to New York. I've heard these rumors so c» i aon't listen any more. "I figure if NBC wants me to do something they'll tell me in their good time." Chrysler Airtemp Heating t Cooing ·ittriMcr^Mltr. TlRODYM CORP. 1325 Dunk»rA»e., Orator, W.Vi.
