Week 14 of the 1973-1974 season started on Monday, December 10th, 1973 and ended on Sunday, December 16th, 1973. The highest-rated program was All in the Family on CBS with a 32.8/53 Nielsen rating/share. Here are the 10 lowest-rated programs:
|59||ABC Suspense Movie (“You’ll Never See Me Again”)||ABC||11.6/19|
|60||CBS Festival of the Arts||CBS||10.4/18|
|61||CBS Thursday Movie (“The Last Escape”)||CBS||10.4/17|
|62||The Rock & Roll Years||ABC||10.2/16|
Yes, the chart published in The Los Angeles Times jumped from 54th to 56th, skipping 55th. Was it a simple typo? Was there a 55th program inadvertently left off the chart?

THE PARTRIDGE FAMILY is noticeably missing from this week’s list, but then, according to http://www.epguides.com , it was preempted this week. A check of my childhood newspaper’s archives shows that ABC ran a Christmas special, “The Night the Animals Talked”, in its place, and that special avoided the Bottom 10 anyway.
What’s the “The Rock & Roll Years”?
