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:

## Program Network Rating
54 Roll Out CBS 12.4/20
56 Temperatures Rising ABC 12.2/19
57 Toma ABC 12.2/19

64 Calucci’s Dept CBS    6.1/10

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?

  1. 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.
