‘Twin Peaks’ collapses
By JOHN HORN
AP Entertainment Writer
LOS ANGELES (AP) — The
much-heralded season premiere of
ABC’s “Twin Peaks” bottomed out
in 41st place in the ratings.
"The Civil War,” meanwhile,
was the most-watched series in
PBS history and was seen by an es-
timated 14 million people each
In the Sunday night time slot, the
two-hour “Twin Peaks” finished
behind NBC’s “Perry Mason”
movie and CBS’ movie “The Face
of Fear.” The Fox comedy “Mar-
ried ... With Children” beat “Twin
Peaks” for the night, too.
Led by a No. 1 finish for the
second consecutive week by
“Cheers,” NBC won the week with
a 12.9 average rating, the A.C.
Nielsen Co. reported Tuesday.
CBS, which won the opening
week of the fall season for the first
time in six years, was second with a
123. ABC had a 12.0. Each ratings
point represents 931,000 homes.
The combined network share of
the TV audience during the fall
season’s second week was down to
63 percent from 68 percent the
previous week. NBC attributed the
decline to “The Civil War.”
PBS said its acclaimed 11-hour
documentary had a 9 rating in the
nation’s 24 largest TV markets.
Reruns uf Fox’s “Tiie
Simpsons” continued to struggle in
head-to-head competition against
new episodes of NBC’s “The
Cosby Show.” “Cosby” finished in
third, while Bart and his family
dropped to 73rd. New episodes of
“The Simpsons” arrive Oct. 11.
ABC won the network news
ratings for the 38th consecutive
week, with an average of 10.0.
CBS had an 8.6 and NBC an 8.5.

SUNDAY — OCTOBER 7
READ: 1 CORINTHIANS 11:23-34
For if we would judge ourselves, we would not be judged. ^
— 1 Corinthians 11:31
In the 1960s, an exclusive club in New York State
refused membership to a young Jewish man. A minis-
ter who belonged to the club opposed this prejudice
by denouncing it from his pulpit. What made his
remarks so arresting was that many members of his
congregation belonged to that club. He said, “I must
iiloioi uiai utc iiiv.inia'v.io vji my vuii^icyauuH iar\c a
stand against a policy that is morally reprehensible.”
Shock waves rippled down the aisles. But that
wasn’t all. He said, “Anyone who has in any way — by
thought, word, or deed — acquiesced with this posi-
tion is no longer welcome to receive holy communion
until he has worked out his own peace with God.”
The apostle Paul also made self-examination a con-
dition for partaking of the Lord’s Supper. Christians at
Corinth, instead of being united, were splitting up into
little groups (1 Cor. 11:18). Some of them were even
getting drunk (v.21).
Self-examination is still important today. We all
come to the Lord’s Supper as sinners, but we must
first repent of any sinful attitudes and deeds.
The communion service is a blessed time as we
unite with other Christians around the world. But it is
also a time of self-judgment and confession of any sin
that has come between us and our Savior. — d.j.d.
Forbid it. Lord, that I should boast,
Saue in the death of Christ, my God;
All the vain things that charm me most —
I sacrifice them to His blood. — Watts
