tune-out as the prime-time schedule
fills up with reruns.
For the week ending June 4, die
three networks had a combined
audience share of 59, the lowest
since last September -hen it dip-
ped to 58.
' The only shows that aren’t in
reams are news programs and the
occasional pilot that didn’t make it
to series. But NBC got a surprising
reaction to ‘'Shannon’s Deal,”
which landed in the top 10 in die
A.C. Nielsen Co. ratings last week.
The two-hour pilot, about a for-
mer corporate lawyer who lost it all
because of a gambling problem,
was written by independent
filmmaker John Sayles (“Eight
Men Out”) and aired as NBC’s
“Shannon’s Deal” had a 14.5
rating and 25 share and ranked
10th, in a tie with CBS’ “60
Minutes.” NBC had been saying
there were no plans to take the pilot
to series, although Sayles has writ-
ten two more eptjpdes After the
ratings came in, the network said it,
was considering keeping the show
“Shannon’s Deal” dealt a poor
hand to its competition on CBS,
“The Tony Awards,” honoring the
year’s finest on Broadway. It had its
lowest rating ever, a 9.3 and 16
NBC won the week, its 50th in a
row, with an average prime-time
rating of 12.7. ABC came in second
with a 9.6. CBS had a 9.4.
Each rating point equals 904,000
households with television. The
share is a percentage of sets in use.

sion ratings as compiled by the
A.C. Nielsen Ca for the week of

People are the same. We find what we are looking for. If
we go to worship with God's family on Sunday; If we look
to criticize the singing, gripe about giving and castigate the
preaching, then before the day Is over, we will find reason
to dislike everything. •
Yet another person can attend the same service; he is
thrilled with the singing, lifted by the prayers and the
preaching, and goes away totally delighted. We get what
we are looking for. But what we look for may say more
about us than the worship we attended. It might say that
we are either a buzzard or a hummingbird at heart.
We need to memorize these lines that students had to
memorize back in 1545:
Cod be in mine head and In mine understanding.
Cod be in mine eyes and in mine looking.
Cod be in mine mouth and In mine speaking.
Cod be In mine heart and In mine thinking.
Cod be at mine end and in mine departing.
