NEW TELEVISION SEASON: THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGING : With Independent Stations, Cable Services Producing More Shows and Affiliates Bypassing Networks With New Technology, TV Today Is a Marketplace of Options : A BURST OF CHOICES FOR VIEWERS

--A dozen sitcoms with new episodes produced especially for independent stations or individual network affiliates, not the networks. These include recycled network concepts such as "The New Gidget" and "9 to 5"--this version starring Sally Struthers--and brand-new shows such as "What a Country!" and "THROB" with Diana Canova.

Rupert Murdoch, the newspaper publisher who owns 20th Century-Fox, has purchased the six-station Metromedia Group, which created ''Small Wonder,'' about a little girl who is really a computer-driven robot. Next fall, as the newly renamed Fox Television Network, it will add ''9 to 5,'' with Sally Struthers taking the role as a secretary that Rita Moreno played on ABC for two years.

''When I started in the syndication business 12 years ago, the syndicators were considered scrap-metal salesmen,'' said Michael Lambert, executive vice president of domestic syndication at Fox. ''We're still stepchildren, but when the stations had to buy reruns of network programs at a price per episode that often exceeded the original budget of the show, they began to say, 'Hey, why don't we make the shows for ourselves?' ''

''M*A*S*H,'' for example, has been sold three times. According to station sources, in 1979 each episode cost a large-city station $200,000, for which the station could broadcast it six times. In 1983, an episode cost $800,000. In 1986, episodes sold for more than $1 million apiece. Episode Guarantee Lowers Fees

To make a half-hour situation comedy costs approximately $350,000 per episode. Mr. Rich said that comedies for syndication can be made for slightly less money since ''the two areas of tremendous cost, actors and writers'' will often lower their fees in return for a guarantee of 25 episodes.

''Now I have the luxury to have time to create a character,'' said Miss Struthers of ''9 to 5.'' ''With any luck at all, we'll go six years. On a network, you're lucky to go six weeks. I spent several months making a pilot for CBS that never got put on the air. I have a 6-year-old daughter and mothering is important to me. I want a 9-to-5 job - no pun intended.''

Sally Struthers went from being on the No. 1 TV sitcom for eight years to being unemployed when she gave up ''All in the Family'' in 1978 to ''pursue other interests. I thought they`d be banging on my door with offers, but nothing happened. It took me four years to get back on the air (with the short-lived series ''Gloria''). And it`s taken me another four years to get another series (the syndicated ''9 to 5''). You`ve got to eat some humble pie every now and then.''
