Viewing dipped a bit in the second week but the Summer Olympics were still the dominant force on television last week, according to figures released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. NBC's seven nights of coverage from Atlanta landed the top seven spots in prime time. For the week, NBC's nighttime Olympics programming, hosted by Bob Costas, averaged a 20.3 household rating--down about 11% from the first week of the Games but still more than ABC, CBS and Fox combined.

A week after former KNBC news anchor Tritia Toyota signed with KCBS-TV Channel 2, KNBC weatherman Kevin O'Connell has followed suit. He is expected to begin appearing on the Channel 2 news next week, a KCBS spokeswoman said Tuesday. However, a decision on which newscast he will work was not immediately made. KCBS management is still deciding how it will staff the various news programs now that Toyota is on the premises. She is due to make her first on-air appearance Monday.

Thank you for your informative interview with John Beard ("At Channel 11 News, 'It Just Feels Better,' " Jan. 8). We concur absolutely with Beard regarding KNBC-TV local news coverage--frankly, it's a joke. KNBC, along with KCBS and KABC, delivers news that insults every viewer's intelligence. We could care less about the Michael Jackson situation until all the facts are in. (Thanks anyway, KNBC!) Whereas KABC previously led the pack in sensationalizing the news, KNBC has now taken over that ranking.
