You would have noticed, above, that ‘Calling Occupants’ jumped back up eleven places and nearly hit the Top 40 again in early December, 1977, after falling twenty-two places from its peak. The week that it jumped back up the charts was the week ‘Carpenters At Christmas’ was screened in the US, I think, so it seems that this special might have boosted the sales of the single, even though the song didn’t appear on the show.
