Its best performer, "Little House on the Prairie," was pre-empted. "Medicine" was no more of a ratings disaster than most documentaries these days -r- it ranked 62nd in a field of 68 with a 22 per (jent share pf tjie Audience — but three hours of substandard ratings were not what the doctor order^ to perk up NBC's ailing standing in the Nielsens. The Nielsens also reflected a settling in the schedules and among audiences.^ Of the bottom 10 shows in the ratings, "Medicine" aside, only two were series that are scheduled to continue, with the others already on the casualty list. Those two were "Maude" and "Baretta," and both had tough competition. CBS' "Maude" was surrounded by the Orange Bowl game for sport nuts on NBC and the three-h^rikerchief drama, !'Breaking.Up," on ABC. ABC's "Baretta" had standard competition from "Police Woman" on NBC, which proves that the people who like cop shows also like pretty girls better than sweaty men, and the movie."Great Scout and Cathouse Thursday" on CBS. The top 10 network programs for the week etiding Jan. 8, according to the A.C. Nielsen Co., were:. 1: "Happy Days"; 2: "Fish"; 3: "Three's Company"; 4: "60 Minutes"; 5: "Breakihg Up"; 6: Orange Bowl game; 7: "Alice"; 8: "All in the Family"; 9: Bob Hopespecial; 10: "One Day at a Time."
