YOU CAN GO HOME AGAIN

In a rare triumph of family values over gossip, CBS’ A Walton Thanksgiving Reunion (4th place) trounced the first part of ABC’s JFK: Reckless Youth. Viewers seemed unmoved by shows marking JFK’s assassination (except for Walton, which dealt with the clan’s reaction to the event). CBS’ Jack tied Youth for 69th, while Dan Rather’s Who Killed JFK? (67th) and NBC’s Fatal Deception: Mrs. Lee Harvey Oswald (50th) didn’t do much better. Westerns helped CBS ride to a slim lead in the November sweeps so far. Return to Lonesome Dove wasn’t nearly as popular as the original, but its final two parts still finished 11th and 16th, and Dr. Quinn (7th) and Walker, Texas Ranger (31st) roped their highest ratings ever.
