Why ABC Lost the 'War'

December 03, 1988

ABC's "War and Remembrance" was probably the best dramatic presentation seen on television in a long, long time.

Yet Jay Sharbutt's Nov. 29 article, " 'War' Proves a Ratings Misfire," pointed out the sad fact that it was well behind in the ratings, with shows like Vanna White's TV feature debut, "Goddess of Love," and "The Cosby Show" significantly outdrawing it.

This is a devastating commentary on the vapid tastes of the American public and its unwillingness to think or even care about such a significant chapter in the world's history.
