TNN ‘Country’ hour taking to the road

The Nashville Network (TNN), which is going all out to increase the profile of its flagship hourlong series “Prime Time Country,” will take the show on the road for four weeks next year.

“Prime Time Country,” the only nightly music-variety series on cable TV, will leave its home base in Nash-ville this week for the first time to tape its shows in Las Vegas in conjunction with National Finals Rodeo Week. “Country,” which usually runs Monday through Thursday, will add a Friday cablecast in Las Vegas. Dick Clark is executive producer of the series.

Gary Chapman, the country/gospel musician and songwriter, took over as host of “Country” in the middle of last year from Tom Wopat. Households ratings in October climbed 9% over those of the same period a year ago, and the show’s numbers shot up 66% among women 25-54 from October ’96 to October ’97.
