First things first, TV Column fans: The Redskins-Saints game on Channel 9 Sunday afternoon averaged a 33.1 Nielsen rating and a 63 percent audience share from 1 until 4:02 ... And that crooshal Baltimore Orioles-Toronto Blue Jays game Friday night, an added starter for Channel 20, drew a 7.5 local Nielsen rating and a 13 percent audience share between 7:30 and 10:15. ... That's not at all bad, considering there was little chance for promotion, except for repeated on-air "crawls" advertising the game on WDCA all that afternoon. ... WDCA had already been through the 39 regular season and eight pre-season Orioles games offered this year by Baltimore's Channel 2 network but snapped at the last-minute chance to pick up the extra game, with the American League East title in the balance. ... Each local ratings point represents 17,278 TV homes. ... Well, as a change of pace, TV Column fans, let's play the Network News Magazine Game this morning. ... Thursday night, ABC's "Primetime Live" ran into the season premiere of CBS's "Knots Landing" and ka-boom, back to a national Nielsen average of 8.3/15 ... off 33 percent from the previous week, when Diane and Sam visited the White House (each national point representing 921,000 tubal homesteads). ... Saturday night, according to the Nielsen overnights, the aptly named "Saturday Night With Connie Chung" on CBS, averaged a 7.7/15 in 21 major markets (and here you thought Jane Fonda wasn't a draw!). ... In Other NewsCBS News executives are expected to meet in New York today with Mike Hoover, the freelance cameraman the New York Post claims staged battle footage in Afghanistan in the mid-1980s for the network. ... Hoover was in New Zealand, studying caves, when the accusations surfaced in the newspaper last week and CBS executives are dying to chat him up. ... Meanwhile, the fear of the Devil himself grips PR types at CBS News, who won't offer two words (beyond "No comment") about what's happening at the division lest president David Burke get wind of their windiness. ... Perhaps it's time to bring back outside PR whiz John Scanlon, whom CBS hired to handle the media when the Gen. Westmoreland trial against CBS News got underway in 1984, amid a lot of publicity questioning the integrity of the news division. ... In an article in the September/October Columbia Journalism Review, Bruce Porter recalls that "first, {Scanlon} put a stop to CBS's practice of giving out 'no comments' whenever it was attacked by Westmoreland or his lawyer, Dan Burt." Scanlon told Porter, "Before, the story would be 'Westmoreland attacks CBS,' and down in the fifteenth paragraph there's some kind of denial. Now it was a real contest, and the press loves a contest." ... Jim Bellows, former managing editor of "USA Today: The Television Show," has filed a breach of contract suit against GTG East asking $1.8 million in damages. ... The suit was filed yesterday in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan. According to Bellows's attorney, Michael Zweig, the journalist "was summarily discharged without notice" last week by the production company. ... A spokesman for GTG East in New York yesterday said the production company -- a partnership between Grant Tinker and Gannett -- had no comment on the filing. ... Bellows was hired last October by GTG to aid then-executive producer Steve Friedman, whose costly start-up plans for the TV version of USA Today, the newspaper, had resulted in poor ratings and an even poorer press. ... Friedman was eased out of daily operations as Bellows took over. But the former editor of the Washington Evening Star was later replaced by longtime Gannett executive Tom Kirby. Since then, Bellows had been working on pre-production plans for a new magazine show at GTG East called "Star Track." According to Zweig, GTG recently "cut him out of the show," which has been renamed "Celebrity" and is scheduled for the syndication market starting next fall. ... GTG reportedly wanted Bellows to return to the show, now called "USA Today on TV," in a lesser role. ... Bellows's two-year contract ran through October of next year, according to GTG East. ... Speaking of Friedman, who reportedly got a $1 million settlement when he finally left GTG East, he's been mentioned prominently by a couple of TV Columnists lately as a likely candidate to replace David Neull as executive producer of "Entertainment Tonight," when the latter takes off for NBC News to become senior executive producer of "Today" at the end of the year. ... Yesterday, Frank Kelly, executive vice president for programming at Paramount Domestic TV, which produces "ET," sent the following memo to the staff thereof: "Jason from 'Friday the 13th' has a better shot at executive producing 'Entertainment Tonight' than Steve Friedman. There's absolutely no chance that Friedman will be involved with 'Entertainment Tonight' in the next century." ... Moving Right AlongBecause of football overruns Sunday night, the Nielsen overnight ratings for the three-movie competition on the networks weren't quite on the money yesterday. ... But it appears that Liz Taylor and "Tennessee Williams' Sweet Bird of Youth" on NBC trailed the competition, at least between 9 and 11 p.m. ... "Bird" averaged a 13.6/21, compared with a 17.0/26 for the first two hours of the network premiere of "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom" on ABC and a 16.8/26 for "Night Walk" on CBS. ... ABC News has signed former Sports Illustrated writer Armen Keteyian to do investigative sports reporting for "World News Tonight." He's the author of "Big Red Confidential: Inside Nebraska Football," a book, which precludes his election as dog catcher in Lincoln this November. ... The season opener of NBC's "Saturday Night Live" on, well, Saturday night, averaged a 10.2 rating and a 30 share in 20 Nielsen overnight markets. According to NBC, that's up 11 percent from last year's opener and gives us the opportunity to sneak in the announcement that: On Oct. 7 Rick Moranis and Rickie Lee Jones will be on hand at SNL; the Oct. 14 broadcast is preempted by wrestling; the Oct. 21 show will be hosted by Kathleen Turner, with Billy Joel; and on Oct. 28 James Woods will host, with Don Henley as guest musician. ... It's plain from the above that NBC research obviously didn't get the word last week -- that A.C. Nielsen has added Indianapolis to its list of overnight markets, for a total of 21 major market areas, which include 43.1 percent of the population of the United States. ... (You might want to take some time out here to freshen up while we list the other cities on Nielsen's Top 21: New York, Chicago, San Francisco-Oakland, Detroit, Dallas-Fort Worth, Atlanta, Seattle, Denver, Hartford-New Haven, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Boston, Washington, Houston, Minneapolis-St. Paul, Miami-Fort Lauderdale, Sacramento-Stockton, Milwaukee, St. Louis and Phoenix ... Starting tomorrow night, "Anything but Love" and "Doogie Howser MD" will flip-flop on the ABC schedule, with "Doogie" moving back to 9 from 9:30, "Love" moving up from 9 to 9:30. ... And FinallyFox Television's "America's Most Wanted" landed another suspect Sunday night. ... Roberto Urbaez, 38, wanted in the shotgun slayings of a brother and sister here in the District, walked into the main San Diego jail about 8:30 p.m. (PDT) shortly after his case was featured on the nationally televised crime show. ... Authorities said Urbaez was arrested on two counts of murder after satisfying authorities that he was the man wanted in the January 1988 slayings of Tesfaye Shifraw and his sister, Mona, with whom Urbaez had an affair. ... FBI supervisor Tony DeLorenzo said Urbaez called the program's hot line shortly after the Shifraw slayings were reenacted on the show and told an FBI agent he was prepared to surrender. A Fox spokesman said it appeared that a viewer on the East Coast had called Urbaez and told him he had been on the program. ... Jack Breslin of Fox said Urbaez was the eighth criminal suspect to surrender since the program debuted in February of last year. Of the 184 criminals profiled on the program since, 114 are now in custody, 74 as the direct result of viewer tips, according to Breslin. ...
