(R> Q3 TIC TAG DOUGH Cable Subscribers Ask For Quality Programs LOS ANGELES (Sp) — Research indicates that cable and pay TV viewers are demanding higher quality programming than ever before, a trend that is reflected in falling loyalty to shows on network television. This view .was expressed in remarks by Gerald M. Levin, group vice pissident-video of Time Inc., at the opening session of the iN'CTA National Cable Programming Conference at the Biltrnore Hotel in Los Angeles. Citing A.C. Nielsen research, Levin said current data show trends toward a decline in network TV usage and a parallel increase in alternative TV usage, which suggest a slackening in network viewer loyalty. "It's no longer just our impression that TV usage is in the pro- oooo of changing," he said. "The data we have now clearly differs from information we had three years ago when Nielsen first started publishing its Status Reports." Levin said the data show that earlier interpretations of how the growth of cable would affect network viewing need rethinking. "It used to be argued that people would continue to view the three networks as much as they did before, but that overall usage of television would increase as new viewing alternatives become available. This new viewing . would be incremental. It was also claimed that even though there might be a drop in network viewership, the networks would still deliver more homes because the number of TV households would increase. "Over the last two years, in fact, viewing of the three networks in pay homes has decreased by 11 percent in primetime and 17 percent in daytime," he said. "While the number of TV homes did grow over the last two years, there was also a loss in the three- network rating of 3.8 points in primetime and 1.5 points in daytime, resulting in an actual decrease in the number of network homes delivered. Levin added that as more channels are offered through cable, more are being viewed. In homes where 1 to 4 channels were received, the aveage number of channels used was 2.6. In homes were 26 channels were available, people used an everage cf 10. "Cable critics say most people use only a few channels and that multichan- nels are unnecessary," he said, "but they ignore the fact that while people use only a few channels, different homes use different channels. "On the other hand, while usage of the three networks is shrinking, the use of pay and basic cable channels and viewing of independent and public TV stations are increasing rapidly in pay homes. Between 1979 and 1981 the usage of pay television in pay homes increased by 17 percent in primetime, usage of basic cable channels almost doubled, and viewing of independent and public stations was also up." The era of a single network dominating a given night also seems to be over, according to Levin. "In the past it was common for one network to win an evening by dominating all time periods. Now audience flow seems to be ebbing, and viewers are showing less network loyalty. Thirty percent of HBO subscribers switch channels regularly, and in HBO/Cinemax multi-pay homes, the figure rises to 37 percent.'

"To me, she was the ideal. I think I probably put a great strain on her by treating her like that. I did net allow her to show me her vulnerability, her needs. But in the last years of her life, we got most of it out and 1 was able to see that hers was not an ideal life." — Lana Wood, actress, on her relationship with her sitter, the late actrass Natalie Wood.
