NEW YORK - This month's
televised Watergate hearings and
those that June may bring pose
two problems for the World of
daytime TV. One is a small but
growing backlog of game shows
and soap operas taped in advance
of thei actual appearance on the
The other is far more serious.
Network staffs have gone on red
alert to make certain they keep
in correct sequence the d a i I y
soap operas pre-empted by live
TV coverage of the hearings.
IT WOULD never do for a sap
opera couple to end the day'n
saga with pledges of eternal love,
only to reappear after three days
of Watergate hearings embroiled
in a fistfight over child custody.
When the hearings aren't on,
the CBS, NBC and ABC net-
works are broadcasting a total
of 31 soap operas and game
shows each weekday - 15 soap-
ers and 16 games per day.
All but two of them are taped

weeks for the soap operas, a
week to a month for the game
shows - and network officials
late last week said production o
them still is proceeding apace.
IT MEANS that with few ex-
ceptions, each day tho Watergate
show is televised live, another
batch of daytime ohowa is ba,.k-
lng up in the vaults, owaitinb the
days live coverage of the hear-
ings isn't planned.
With only five televised hear-
inga son far, the videotape back-
log situation is far frocm acute,
according to network officials.
It's the future number of tee-
vised Watergate sessions Ohat
worries them.
"We don't like to get t o o
many shows ahead becaiise there
are all kinds of problems that can
pop up when you do that," says
Lin Bolen, NBC's director of day-
time programs.
"IN THE SERIALS," she says,
referring to NBC's five soap
operas, "you like to tie the story

The hearings, which begai May
17, forced the only two live soap
operas on TV - CBS' "As the
World Turns" and "Edge of
Night" - to switch to videotape.
There was no sense having their
casts just hanging around, vat-
ing for Watergate to let out.
