ABC's Switch Wasn't Right Down Their Alley

April 03, 1993

In Larry Stewart's notes on March 26, he wrote: "ABC angered tennis fans last Saturday when it interrupted coverage of the Lipton Championships final between Steffi Graf and Arantxa Sanchez Vicario to switch to bowling."

FYI, we bowling fans were upset when the tennis action cut into the bowling telecast. ABC didn't return to the bowling until the 10th frame of the first match. To make matters worse, ABC then cut immediately to a commercial, thus depriving bowling fans of seeing all of the crucial final frame.

Don't forget, there are many more bowling fans than tennis fans. Otherwise, why does bowling always bury tennis in the TV ratings?
