Week 9 of the 1973-1974 season started on Monday, November 5th, 1973 and ended on Sunday, November 11th, 1973. The highest-rated program was the movie Airport (an installment of The ABC Sunday Night Movie) on ABC with a 42.0/46 Nielsen rating/share. Here are the 10 lowest-rated programs:
|58||McMillan & Wife||NBC||9.7/14|
|61||Bob & Carol &; Ted & Alice||ABC||9.7/15|
|62||New Perry Mason||CBS||9.6/14|
|64||NBC News Special Report||NBC||7.1/13|
I’m not entirely sure when the NBC News Special Report at the bottom of this week’s ratings chart aired. President Nixon delivered a televised speech to the nation concerning the ongoing energy crisis on Wednesday, November 7th, 1973 from approximately 7:30-8PM ET. It’s possible NBC broadcast a special report following the conclusion of the speech.
