NBC Storms Ahead In Key Demographic, Despite Miserable Premieres


Blair Underwood Raymond Burr

NBC stormed to its second straight weekly ratings victory, taking first place in the key 18-49 demographic - the most important to advertisers.

The network bested ABC, CBS and Fox in the lucrative demo, averaging a 2.76 rating for the week of September 30, compared to CBS' second place rating of 2.14, ABC's 2.13 and Fox's paltry 1.7.

Essential
Not only is Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window one of his best pictures, it's one of the best films ever made altogether.

The master craftsmanship on display (placing virtually the entire film within the confines of the apartment of hobbled photographer L.B. Jeffries -- the inimitable James Stewart -- referred to as "J.B. Jeffries" on the back of the DVD case) has few parallels in modern cinema. The story by John Michael Hayes is one of Hitch's simplest yet most gripping: Jeffries spies the cleanup of a supposed murder across the way from his Manhattan apartment -- a sinister Raymond Burr cleaning knives and whatnot. He tells his girlfriend (Grace Kelly) and she laughs. His nurse (the unforgettable Thelma Ritter) mocks him also, urging him to marry instead of peeping out the window at strangers. But slowly, the truth is revealed, and even his most ardent naysayers join in the plot to uncover the reality of what happened in the apartment across the way. By the end of the picture, Kelly is prepared to break into Burr's apartment via fire escape because she's certain of what has happened inside.
