Help fill out the TV Guide crossword puzzle!

We don't usually do audience participation here at It's About TV, but this week I thought we'd try something different.  If it works and you like it, we'll make it a recurring feature.  It has to do with one of the most popular parts of TV Guide - the crossword puzzle.

Below is the puzzle from the September 14, 1974 issue we've been looking at this week. Pick out one or two of the clues, and enter your answers in the comments section below.*  (I've got next week's issue, which means I know what the correct answers are.)  Remember, this TV Guide is from 1974, so keep that in mind when answering the clues.  Between all of us, let's see how many of the answers we can come up with.  I'll print the correct puzzle next week.  Ready?  Let's get started!
