presentatives, were set forth by
CBS-TV programming vice presi-
dent Fred Silverman, who gave
a rundown of his organization's
new fall schedule. One case he
outlined in a night-by-night break-
down was this:
ON SATURDAYS where CBS-
TV currently has a lineup of.
"All in the Family," "Bridget
Loves Bernie" and the M a r y
Tyler Moore, Bob Newbart and
Carol Burnett series: "This has
been one of the biggest nights in
the history of television - yet
one troublesome half hour has
surfaced . . . From the day it
went on the air, 'Bridget Loves
Bernie' was losing close to 25
per cent of the 'All in the Fam-
ily' audience.
"The figure rose to 35 per cent
in the first quarter . . . And
more often than not, the show

'Emergency' . passed "Brid-
get' by. The ratings, in this case,
bore out a general feeling that
the show was not, qualitatively,
on a par with the rest of the
Saturday lineup. It was, in fact,
highly vulnerable, and could have
severe problems in the fall when

THE "FOR FUN
WHODUN WHAT!

ABC installs a 90-minute slis-
pense movie series . .
"Recognizing the importance of
the current 'Bridget' slot as the
pivot for the night and indeed
the key to our continued Satur-
day leadership, we decided' that
'Bridget Loves Bernie' had to go.
"THE PROGRAM selected for
this ; coveted spot is 'MASH' -
one of the brightest and smart-
comedies in our schedule. Here
is a show, in spirit and appeal,
that is a. perfect companion
piece," Silverman said, for the
programs that will bracket it,
"All in the Family" and Miss
Moore's series.
Silverman says MASH "ap-
pears to be tough competitively,"
adding: "In what is considered
to be one of the most trecher-
ous half hours in network tele-
vision, Sunday at 8 p.m. EDT, its
performance has steadily improv-
ed - reaching a 33 share in-the
last national Nielsen. We have
not seen a 33 here since Ed Sul-
livan in his heyday."
The executive says CBS-TV be-
lieves the new Saturday slot will
help "MASH' become a "super-
star" entry.

"The picture is devoted, almost in its entirety, to
breaking new emotional ground . ." N.Y. POST.
"His feeling is spontaneous, s i n c e r e, generous,
naive, natural. It bubbles up like the spring of life
itself. A spectator who sits down to this picture
feeling old and dry will rise up feeling young and
green." TIME. "I'm so taken with the beauty and
novelty and wit and loving high spirits of Francois
Truffaut's JULES & JIM that I scarcely know where
to begin singing its praises. I look forward to seeing
this film at least once or twice a year for years to
come." NEW YORKER. "Will rank among the great
lyric achievements of the screen." Pauline Koel.
"Truffaut's finest film."
This is the weekend for Jules and Jim,
