Maurice Chevalier. When a glamorous midwife turns men's heads in a small Italian village, the women of the town pull a "Lysistrata" and go on "strike." Filmed in Italy, the sce- nics are the main attraction in this slow-moving comedy. Fall line-up may hurt CBS ratings By Jay Fredericks After years of reigning as King of Saturday Night, this may just be the season that CBS's supremacy is challenged seriously and even overcome. ., For the past several seasons, the blockbuster CBS Saturday night lineup has started at 8 p.m. with "All In The Family," which grabbed the viewers at the start of the prime time evening and then kept them tuned to CBS through the Mary Tyler Moore, Bob Newhart and Carol Burnett shows. The weak spot in the otherwise formidable array was the half hour between "All In The Family" and "Mary Tyler Moore," which CBS filled with a variety of shows -"Bridget Loves Bernie," "Friends and Lovers" and, most lately, "The Jeffersons" -- none of which even approached the quality of the rest of Saturday night's offerings. But, as has been noted, someone reading the alphabet - if they had the spot between "All In The Family" and "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" would get impressively high rat- m This season, CBS is moving "All In The Family" to 9 p.m. on Mondays, presumably so the show won't have to be cleaned up to .fit the requirements of the "family viewing hour" that is supposed to consist of nothing but non-controversial and squeaky clean programs until 9 p.m. each night. And the network is leading off its Saturday night line up with "The Jeffersons." Sunday Solo "SANDCASTLES" (1972) *' 11:30 p.m. 0. Jan-Michael Vincent, Bonnie Bedelia. Even if the two leading players are nice to look at, it's still a silly ghost story, with a strong stress on sentimental love. Miss Bedelia falls for .Vincent after he's been killed in an auto accident . . . yes, that's AFTER he dies! 7:00 O © Truth or Consequences ® Porter Wagoner ® Ironside © Wally's Workshop 0 What's My Line ffl Klassroom Kwiz 0 Candid Camera ® Music Scene 9 One of a Kind ffl Let's Garden ; 7:30 O Nashville Music © Untamed World 0 To Tell the Truth ® Community Report 0 $25,000 Pyramid ® ffi Hollywood Squares 9 Episode ffl Martin Agronsky 8:00 O ® ® ® © Baseball 0 ffi Gunsmoke 0® Rookies 9 ffl Raitt, Butterfield 9:00 0 Maude 0 ® SWAT ffl Movie 9 Tim Weisberg 9:30 O Rhoda 9 Realidade.s ffl Victory At Sea 10:00 9 Sinners 0 ® Caribe 0 ffi Medical Center ffl Family At War 11:00 O®®© ©02)0® Lo- Cal news, weather, sports 9 Captioned News 11:30 O ® ® O © Tonight Movie Wide World i Janaki ,1 think this is a mistake. "The Jeffersons" is not a very good show. Its ratings are, I think, dependent on its spot between-Archie and Mary Tyler and deprived of those cushions, I think its weaknesses are going to be quickly exposed. The first -- and major -- weakness is that .its protagonist, George Jefferson is not a sympathetic character. With all his faults - and he has a bushel -- Archie Bunker still gives the impression that he is human and that, in his own way, he loves his wife and his daughter. But George Jefferson and his wife spend their time spitting put-down wisecracks at each other, at the other members of the family, and at all their neighbors. There is little sign of any affection at all among the Jeffersons. And, like all Norman Lear shows, "The Jeffersons" depends largely on decibel count to cover weaknesses in the script. When in doubt, the Lear approach goes, yell. And in "The Jeffersons" the yelling is practically constant. »· In past 'seasons, NBC has managed to build its opening Saturday night show "Emergency" from a shaky start into a steady second place offering, which-and I would think this might show CBS something -- picks up viewers after the first hour. That means a lot of "All . In The Family" watchers are switching over right after Archie mangles his final sentence. "Emergency" viewers, according to the demographics, are younger people -- mostly kids --and without "All In The Family " to challenge it for viewers this season, I think a lot of families are just going to let the kids have the set from 8-9 p.m. on Saturdays and may even stick around for the NBC Saturday night movie. If they do that in any numbers, that means Mary Tyler Moore and Bob Newhart and Carol Burnett are going to slip in the ratings too. This could be Carol Burnett's last season if her audiences decline too drastically since CBS viewers tend to slide away anyway at 10 p.m. At any rate, I'm willing to bet right now that CBS loses its Saturday night dominance this season, giving NBC its best shot in years to become the number-one network.
