January 10, 1999

Out of curiosity, I checked the Nielsen ratings for last week's WORLD'S
GREATEST HOAXES show.  It was Fox's sixth highest rated show for the period
(41st overall out of 125 overall).  That's pretty good for Fox, and while
MAGIC'S GREATEST SECRETS beat it, I'd still think we could see a sequel.

This week is pretty slow, but I do think we'll see some buzz in the
"community" about the NOVA Nessie program.  Check out the preview of it at
<A HREF="http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/preview/2601/288.html">http://www.pbs.or
g/wgbh/nova/preview/2601/288.html</A>.

My new FATE feature should run for the first time in the April issue, and my
deadline for that is January 15.  If you'd like information on contributing
weird reports from around the world for it, just let me know.
