Nielsen Top Ten, February 20th-March 5th, 1967

Thanks to a generous reader who would like to remain anonymous I can provide Nielsen Top Ten lists for the remainder of the 1966-1967 season. And they won’t be combined two week NTI reports but instead the individual top ten for each week. Here are the lists for the 24th and 25th weeks of the season.

First up, the top ten programs for the week running Monday, February 20th through Sunday, February 26th, 1967. A CBS special, “Andy Griffith’s Uptown-Downtown Show,” topped the list with a 35.5 Nielsen rating. It ran from 8:30-9:30PM on Tuesday, February 21st, 1967 with guests Don Knotts, Maggie Peterson and the Bruce Davis Quintet and Tennessee Ernie Ford. In second place was NBC’s live-action/animated “Jack and the Beanstalk” starring Gene Kelly. It was broadcast on Sunday, February 26th from 7:30-8:30PM.
