NE M YORK (AP) - Roseanne
Barr has the nation's most popular
TV program. At least, that was the
case before she screeched the na-
“Roseanne" led the ratings last
week with a 14.6, according to A.C.
Nielsen Co. figures released
Tuesday. Each point represents
ABC’s “Roseanne,” which won
during a week of abysmal summer-
time viewing levels, aired the day
before its star massacred the na-
tional anthem at a San Diego Pad-
res game, drawing the wrath of
baseball fans and President Bush.
Overall, ABC pulled even with
NBC the perennial winner. Both
averaged an 8.9 rating for the week.
CBS was third at 8.4, but all three
networks averaged only a 17 share,
or 17 percent of the televisions in
“The three networks’ share was
a 51 for the week. That’s among the
lowest, if not the lowest ever recor-
ded,” said David Marans, a media
research analyst at the J. Walter
Thompson advertising agency.
“They received about half the
available viewers. That has to be a
cause for heartache for them.”
Another rerun, NBC’s “Cheers,”
was No. 2, and CBS’ rerun of its
1987 miniseries “Murder Or-
dained" on Sunday tied for third
with NBC’s “The Cosby Show.”
NBC won the ratings on three
nights: Wednesday, Thursday and
Saturday, but posted its worst Sun-
day night ratings in history — an
11 share, Marans said.
Fox Broadcasting Co., which airs
its hit shows “The Simpsons,”
“Married ... with Children” and
“In Living Color” on Sunday, ran
into trouble experimenting with
two new shows and a special on
Fox’s “Molloy,” “Glory Days”
and the special “Hollywood Dog”
were the lowest-rated programs on
“They’re not exempt from
viewer defection and viewer deser-
tion,” said Tim Dempsey, another J.
Walter Thompson analyst.
Reruns are outperforming tlie
original programs the networks
have offered this summer,
“There’s always bedn a'general
feeling during the summer season
that all these shows are failed
pilots,” he said. “They’re being
perceived as filler, and that they
weren’t strong enough to make it
onto the lineup permanently.”
Here are the top 10 reruns, with
their networks and ratings:
“Roseanne,” ABC 14.6;
“Cheers,” NBC, 14.4; “The Cosby
Show,” NBC, 13.3; “CBS Sunday
Movie" (“Murder Ordained ).
CBS, 13.3; “Empty Nest,” NBC,
13.1; “Golden Girls,” NBC, 12.9;
“60 Minutes,” CBS, 12.9; “A Dif-
ferent World," NBC, I2J; “Unsol-
ved Mysteries,” NBC 12.3;
“America’s Funniest Home
Videos, "ABC, 12.2.
in the network evening news
ratings, ABC won again with an
8.9. CBS had a 7.8, and NBC a 7.6.

Dear Ladies And Gentlemen
Of East Ttexas ~~
The honest motivations for this letter are professional, sentimen-
tal, and yes, even selfish.
I hope you will take the time to read it through.
Living here in East Texas is a priviledge that most of us take
for granted. But we all have a responsibility in helping to build
the GREAT EAST TEXAS EMPIRE.
Why send your money out of state, when you can get the same
or better products or services right here? By buying from locally
owned businesses, your dollars keep circulating in the East Texas
economy—where they do the most good. Every dollar you spend
here enriches our area 7 times.* But likewise, when your dollars
go elsewhere, you've missed the opportunity of helping our area—
and yourself—7 times. Our home-owned businesses paid the taxes
and supported the schools, arts and charities long before the na-
tional chains showed up.
This is not to suggest that out of town concerns have not made
welcome and needed contributions to our area. I'm just asking for
your conscious efforts to give East Texas' businesses first looks.
They deserve your partnership.
Since 1954, Combined Underwriters Life Insurance Company
has played a vital part in the East Texas economy. We've grown
from a small company to one now with over 100 home office
employees in Tyler and hundreds of independent agents, living,
working and recycling their incomes right back into our local
economy. Combined Underwriters' continuing commitment to
EAST TEXAS has resulted in the creation of our now famous EAST-
T-PLEX PLANS offering low-cost affordable Life and Major
Medical coverages..plus, many other major insurance innovations.
So keep your loyalty and your hard-earned dollars where you
live and work—right here in East Texas..building the great East
At Combined Underwriters, we specialize in Life, Major
Medical, Disability Compensation, Cancer plans and other impor-
tant coverages for self-employed people, small business people and
non-profit groups. As an East Texas institution, Combined Under-
writers would consider it a priviledge and honor to have you as
a policyholder. Call us today. We all have a part to play in the future
of our great area!
