IS 'DOG' BOUND FOR THE POUND?

Posted on

Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park may be doing monster business, but his CBS series, Family Dog, is whimpering. The series’ first two episodes (which aired back-to-back on June 23) finished 40th and 42nd. At least Spielberg and Dog cohort Tim Burton can take comfort that their series is doing better than fellow filmmaker Robert Zemeck- is’ new CBS show, Johnny Bago, which debuted in 71st place. The good news for the Big Three networks this summer is that their newsmagazines are flourishing. In addition to the established 60 Minutes, 20/ 20, PrimeTime Live, and 48 Hours, ABC’s Day One (16th), CBS’ Eye to Eye With Connie Chung (25th), and NBC’s Dateline NBC (30th) are all showing strength. The bad news is for Fox’s fledgling info show, Front Page, which bowed in at 78th. Top Twenty
