Los Angeles Times
NEW YORK - Dissatisfied with the
television industry's age-based ratings
system, several members of Congress
intend to introduce legislation that
would effectively force the TV net-
works to provide content-based TV rat-
ings.
Sen. Ernest Hollings (D-S.C.) plans
to introduce a new "safe harbor" bill in
the Senate today that would require the
television industry - which includes
the major networks, cable stations and
syndicators of programs - to either
label shows for violence or move them
to "safe harbor" hours when children
are less likely to be watching.
And in the House today, conservative
Rep. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) will team
up with liberal Rep. Ed Markey (D-
Mass.) one of the leading critics of the
industry's ratings system, to introduce
Hollings' "safe harbor" bill.
Rep. Joseph
Kennedy (D-
Mass.) plans to Tir
introduce a bill
tomorrow that misses b
would establish a
toll-free 800 tele- entirely
phone number at
the Federal - Sen.
Communications
Commission to
track parents'
concerns about the TV industry's sys-
tem.
Meanwhile, other members of
Congress are considering introducing
legislation that would mandate content-
based TV ratings, sources said.
This burst of legislative activity
comes as the TV industry is preparing
to face a barrage of criticism at a hear-
ing tomorrow on the ratings system
held by the Senate Commerce
Committee. Eight members of
Congress, including Republican and
Democratic senators and representa-
tives, plan to testify against the net-
works' system, while only one, Rep.
Sonny Bono (R-Calif.) plans to speak
in support of the industry's guidelines.
The networks have been labeling
their shows since Jan. 1 with age-
based labels (TV-PG, TV-14 and other
categories) that are modeled after the
ratings for movies. But critics of the
current system want the networks to
provide labels that would rate TV
shows according to the amount of sex,
violence and foul language they have.
"The intent of Congress in creating
the 'V-chip' was to help parents screen
out violent programming," Hollings

FANS'
Continued from Page 1
need them to be not quiet. We need
them to be vocal."
Walter Harrison, vice president for
University relations and a fixture at
Michigan basketball games, cited the age
of a majority of the crowd as a reason for
the relatively subdued atmosphere.
"A lot of the crowd are old folks, and
a lot of us older folks could stand to be
a lot more animated," Harrison said.
"We could certainly use more vocal
support (at Crisler Arena)," Harrison
added. "We need to get off our fannies."
LSA sophomore and basketball fan
Bintoo Desai said he thinks the crowd
will be energetic tonight, regardless of
Fisher's plea.
"I think it will help" Desai said. "But
1 don't think it'll make all that much
difference."
Desai said the crowd realizes the
importance of tonight's game and the
support the team needs as it tries to pull
off a victory.
"I think the fans understand how
important this game is, he said. "It will
definitely be loud in there"
Although tonight's game is a sellout,
the number of student season-ticket
applications has plummeted this sea-
son, down by more than 1,000 from last
season and by more than 1,300 from a
high during the 1993-94 campaign,
according to the Athletic Ticket
Department.
A factor that might work in
Fisher's favor in getting fans more
involved tonight is the game's status
as the last home game in the student
ticket package.
Wisconsin coach Dick Bennett has
brought his team to Crisler only once in
his two years as the Badgers' coach, but

that one visit occurred on just such an
occasion.
Bennett said the crowd played a large
part in Michigan's 65-51 victory.
"The crowd did a good job, he said.
"Any time your-fans are intense from.
beginning to end, it helps."
Bennett also publicly called for
increased fan support several years ago
as coach at the University of Wisconsin
at Green Bay.
He said the fan reaction to his request
was outstanding, helping to motivate
his team.
"The response was overwhelming"
Bennett said. "I think the players appre-,
ciate that. There's no question that play-
ers love it."
He added that there is a time when a
large, intense crowd can instead hurt
the home team.
"Sometimes the worst thing that can
happen - and I've experienced that
is when you have a big crowd at-home,
and you're not doing so well, and they
get quiet," Bennett said.
"That actually puts more pressure on.
Then the anxiety level just goes sky-
high."
Since Crisler Arena seating was
restructured six years ago, 3,100 sea-
son tickets have been made available
each year in the student section. In
the past, applications for season tick-
ets have exceeded that number, forc-
ing the Athletic Ticket Department to
split season-ticket packages. These
packages provided some students
with tickets to all home games while
others got tickets for only a certain
number of games.
This season, however, the number of
applications fell to 2,800, after topping
3,800 last season and reaching 4,100 at
the high-water mark of the 1993-94
season.

said, referring to an electronically
encoded device that must be built into
television sets starting in 1998. The
chip will be linked to the industry's vol
untary TV ratings, allowing parents td
block the broadcast of programs the
consider unsuitable for viewing by their
children.
"The networks keep saying, 'Give
our system a chance to work,"' Hollings
said. "But their system misses the target
entirely. It doesn't tell you specific
information about what's in the TV
shows."
Under Hollings' plan, networks and
other distributors of TV programming
would have to label their TV shows
according to their levels of violence or
else broadcast violent programming
during late evening hours. The FCC
would define what constitutes "violent"
programming and specify the "safe har
bor" hours.
"If the net.
works provide
sentenbased
te target they should, the
'safe harbor'
p r 0 v is i n s
would not be
Ernest Hollings t r i g g e r e d,
(D-S.C.) Hollings said.
1 o i n gs
introduced a
similar "safe harbor" bill in Congress
last year, but it was not linked to TV rat-
ings, and it never made it to the Senatd
floor.
Hollings' bill is based on an FCC rule
that limits "indecent" programming on
television and radio to the hours between
10 p.m. and 6 a.m. The indecency provi-
sions have been upheld in the courts.
The. National Association of
Broadcasters said they will decline to
comment on Hollings' bill until it has
been introduced. But broadcast-indus
try executives said they believe the plan
is an unconstitutional infringement of
the networks' right to free speech.
"This bill sounds ,constitutionally
suspect. Is the government now going
to decide that we can't air 'Schindler's
List?"' asked one entertainment-indus-
try executive, referring to director
Steven Spielberg's graphically violent
film about the Holocaust that was
broadcast by NBC last Sunday.
Still others in the industry expressed
concern about the climate of criticism
in Congress. "The TV-ratings system
was supposed to be voluntary, one
executive said. "But nobody seems to
be remembering that now."
