TV REVUE AND PREVUE laugh-In' Climbs Again in Ratings QgdenStandard-Examiner, Friday, .October;!,: 1971 7B By RICK DU BROW HOLLYWOOD (UPI) —Although two top NBC-TV series, the Jimmy Stewart Show and "Bonanza," fizzled surprisingly in 1be premiere week ratings, another program on the network, "Laugh-In," indicated signs of a strong comeback. Toward the end of. last season, it looked as though "Laugh-In" was finally about to make a steep plunge in the ratings after several years of ranking near the top. It was definitely not helped by the • ABC's new , j „„_. pro football games. On the other hand, even a failure this season would not have diminished admiration for the ability of "Laugh-In" to continue as long as it has with such a .demanding amount of v.ieekly material. surprise in the poor rating of; another movie name, Henry Fonda, whose returning ABC show,' "The Smith Family," about a police officer, his wife and kids, was a strong contender last season. In' this season's premiere, it came in competition of Monday night Fonda got knocked off in this rating by CBS-TV's "Medical Center," still popular, and the new "NBC Mystery Movie," with Peter Falk as a detective. "Medical Center" and Falk also clobbered Miss MacLaine's_new series, and Falk But the premiere week ratings reveal that "Laugh-In" ranked 10th among all shows, which is very strong. What is ironic is that it came in back- to-back with its head-on CBS competition, "Gunsmoke," which placed ninth. There is obviously a demographically divided audience at this viewing hour, with "Laugh-In" viewers undoubtedly younger, though not necessarily wiser. "Guns- moke" is a fine show too. FLIP DOES WELL On Nov. 1, "Laugh-In" will present its 100th show, featuring "graduates" of the series — Arte Johnson, Judy Carne, Tiny Tim, Henry Gibson, Jo Anne Worley, Teresa Graves and the program's first John Wayne. cameo guest, The ratings also reveal that I!** Tt7il<?fvn*r. tf-"h/\nr d^-mc TTIOTft Flip Wilson's show seems more popular than ever this season finishing second only to "Mar •*«•-•——J "Marcus Welby, M.D." The Wilson hour, on NBC, simply murdered ABC's "Alias Smith and Jones" and CBS's new Rod Taylor series, "Bearcats." Both "Alias Smith and Jones" and "Bearcats" are derivatives of the Butch Cassidy-Sundance Kid type of lightehearted western. Tony Curtis, meanwhile, has had a peculiar reaction from audiences in his new ABC adventure series, "The Persuaders," which costars Roger The premiere episode Moore, scored very well in the OV»U11.U r*-*J ,,~~. -overnight ratings in New York and Los Angeles, .yet in the national rankings the series came in a dreadful 56th.

TONIGHT'S HIGHLIGHTS 6:30-7:30 (CBS) — O'Hara, United States Treasury has its most interesting episode to date: David Janssen is working with the Secret Service branch which, the show informs you, is the oldest general law enforcement agency in the country, and handles counterfeiting and forgery, as well as its more famous chore of protecting the President. Stolen bonds are at issue here and Janssen once again goes undercover, but this time in more elegant settings.- 6:30-8:30 (NBC)—NBC World Premiere Movie has' '^River of Gold," a cliche adventure tale which benefits from having been filmed in Brazil. The opening shot of Rio's famous beach and a later one of Christ of the Andes, where a scene is played high above the city, are sensational to see. GOOD PERFORMERS Vic Morrow and Claude Akins, two very good performers, play soldiers of fortune hired for a job in the wilds that involves: trucking nitro across dangerous roads, mercenaries in a border country, bandits who are really good guys, and a mysterious female. Louise Sorel plays the latter and, in a skimpy bathing suit, she vies with the Brazilian scenery. 7:30-8:30 (CBS) — Mannix (Mike Connors) spends most of this show in great trouble and] is bewildered as to why.
