Week 9 of the 1972-1973 season started on Monday, November 6th, 1972 and ended on Sunday, November 12th, 1972. The highest-rated program was the ABC Sunday Movie (True Grit) on ABC with a 38.9/63 Nielsen rating/share. Here are the 10 lowest-rated programs:
|56||ABC Election Coverage||ABC||11.3/18|
|57||Dick Van Dyke||CBS||11.2/16|
|58||“What Happened Last Night”||CBS||10.7/19|
|61||Amer. Independent Political–Monday||ABC||7.3/11|
For the record, program titles are written exactly the way they were published in 1972.
Broadcasting‘s list for this week does not include network election night coverage. I’ve opted to use the list found in The Los Angeles Times, which does include election coverage.
