When "Hunter" first hit the air in 1984, the initial episodes were so ridiculed by critics and so ignored by viewers that the police series was nearly canceled. Now in syndication, the same episodes are again proving to be lethal--lethal, that is, to all of "Hunter's" Los Angeles competitors. In the recently concluded February ratings sweeps, reruns of "Hunter" won the highly competitive 6-7 p.m.

Eight years after the NBC show "Hunter" left American airwaves, the unorthodox cop played by Fred Dryer remains a popular hero in the most unlikely of places--the People's Republic of China. Through reruns of "Hunter" that still appear in syndication on Chinese television, Dryer himself has emerged as such a hot commodity that the Communist Chinese now want the ex-NFL football star to make a feature-length film in their country later this year.

It was a slow night during Mayor Fred Hunter's debut as a radio talk show host. Hunter and his guest, City Manager Robert Simpson, spent an hour extolling the virtues of Anaheim but only netted one caller: the head of a local realty board who praised the "progressive things" the city is doing. Still, the show pleased Hunter. With the launching of "An Evening With the Mayor Starring Mayor Fred Hunter," he becomes the only Orange County official to host both weekly television and radio programs.

Stunt man James H. Bernard, 26, who became a real-life hero by saving a man stuck in his car in 10 feet of water off Newport Beach, has been given the Villa Nova Outstanding Citizen Award. Bernard, of Newport Beach, who works on the "Hunter" television program, saw a car lurch down a hill, flip over and land nose first in the water. Bernard dived into the murky water, forced the door open and rescued 77-year-old William Stancil and gave CPR to start him breathing again.
