FamilvAffair" fromViacórn,naturall y . Viacom builds sitcom




You know the strength of back-to-back sitcoms in fringe time. They can build bigger, better audiences at each successive half-hour break. And set you up with the right audience going into prime time. One example:19 stations with 3 consecutive fringe -time sitcoms increased their number of 18 -49 women by an average 77% and their total viewers by 71% over the 90- minute span. And another:16 stations with 4 or more sitcoms in a row boosted 18 -49 women 227% and total viewers 62 %, on the average, in their120- minute -or-longer laugh span. There's one sure way to get the best results. Make sure you get the best sitcoms. From Viacorn Source: NSI, Nov. 1973. Audience estimates are subject to qualifications available on request. media.

Blinn MUM ii "After the fine experience we've had with BCS, we shudder to think of starting our station day without it" says Les Lindvig, Vice President KOOL Radio /Television, Inc., Phoenix.

"We at KOOL are extremely pleased with Kaman's Minicomputer System," continues Mr. Lindvig. "The ease of operation -the ease of training people who have never been near a computer is a tremendous accomplishment." "Plus the access capability opened up to our national representatives makes this the most sophisticated computer system yet devised for broadcast operation." BCS is the only traffic and accounting system developed by broad- casters for broadcasters. BCS, first in the business, has been proven in radio and television stations since 1969. BCS pioneered the mini- master computer concept. BCS costs less, long term, than any other. Find out for yourself why our customers say "Kaman's BCS System more than pays for itself."

Among other detriments, Mr. Moore claimed, the resulting monetary setback would hinder small operators in their efforts to comply with FCC tech- nical performance requirements. "Sooner or later," Mr. Moore said, "the FCC and everyone else concerned has got to recognize that a man with 250 -850, or even 1,850 CATV subscribers just is not in the same league financially as the big, new, public money market systems which NCTA represents. "Unless this comes to a halt, and soon, the small rural CATV systems are going to face drastic cutbacks in service and perhaps even financial disaster," he said.
