Great listing. Weird to see CBS News on Ch. 9. IIRC, 4 didn't take the CBS Morning News until the 2 hour version with Bill Kurtis and Diane Sawyer, taking it live at 6am Central. You might be right, unless they also carried its predecessor, when Charles Kuralt and Sawyer hosted the weekday version of the "Sunday Morning" show. I know that didn't last long, though. Can't remember how they handled that one. Considering the ratings, CBS would have been better off keeping Captain Kangaroo!

I was pretty young, but I remember cartoons at 7:00am around '79-80; in '81, there was the Morning Report with Skip Loescher at 7 and then Charlie Rose at 7:30. Donohue was on at 8 forever.

Anyhow they had more shows from Channel 48 than they had room for (and they did not even have any of the Viacom shows except for Gomer and Dick Van DYke) and allowed Channel 57 to pick a bunch of shows like Brady Bunch and Dennis The Menace and Inspector Gadget and Heathcliff up. Not a bad station but the religious shows stood in the way of them becoming a leading independent. 57 WGBS (Ind.)

Anyhow a great station initially WGBS picked up all the shows other stations passed on - mostly because of lack of room rather than quality. WGBS had a weaker lineup of evening sitcoms but made up for it with the huge number of Viacom classic sitcoms not in the market since at least upon 48's demise and even before in a few cases. WGBS was not big on movies - Milton Grant tended to have his stations run drama shows in prime time - same in Miami and Chicago as well as Dallas & Houston (till Taft picked those stations up and picked up more movies for that pair of stations) - Kim Martin was WGBS staff announcer. WGBS did overdo westerns weekends though. Still they filled a huge hole in this market.

Also this station reached both Philadelphia market to the north as well as Scranton to the south. This station was technically in the Philadelphia DMA. Had barely a signal down there. Philly UHF stations, though had a grade A signal in the southern part of the Lehigh Valley and a Grade B signal to the norther area. Still some syndicators sold shows to Channel 69 that were already on in Philadelphia. Others would not. Do not know why. Probably something to do with contracts with Philadelphia stations defining their exclusive area. Some considered Allentown its own market though it did not meet the criteria to be its own DMA. My guess. Okay nothing great station. Still some aspects of their religious ties still show on the station today but to a lesser extent.

Still had weekday children's program Hatchy Milatchy - Wonder how much longer That lasted. Up until September 1987, when it moved to Saturday Morning and was replaced by "High Rollers" and "Split Second".

Quote 3 PM Little House On The Prairie a ton of shows normally found on a commercial independent. Curious - were these shows edited or unedited? were there "commercial" breaks with no commercials but with station promos and PSA's? Where did you find this airing at 3PM on WVIA? I don't remember it airing on WVIA until 1991. And to answer your question, they were unedited, with no commercial breaks. To fill the time left by having no commercial breaks, there was usually some sort of filler - I can remember them filling the time after "Dark Shadows" with either an Aubrey cartoon or "Jack Horkheimer: Star Hustler (as it was known at the time).

The August 7th, 1995 affiliation swap between WLNE-6 and WPRI-12 basically reversed a swap that took place between WLNE (then WTEV) and WPRI in 1977. BTW, this Monday night (December 31st) at 12 Midnight is the 50th anniversary of WTEV/WLNE. It's first broadcast began as 1963 got underway.

Ah....WTEV/WLNE....A history of 50 years of disappointment, mediocrity, frustration, failure, and abysmal ratings! Yet...Channel 6 holds a place in the hearts of so many in Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island. A group of former employees of WTEV/WLNE have even set up thier own nostalgic web site dedicated to the little station that couldn't.......and still can't!

These listings are interesting (at least to me) because they show the schedule for the illfated WJJY-TV/14, an ABC affiliate in Jacksonville that targeted the Quincy market and also reached Springfield. The station went on the air on August 18, 1969 and went dark sometime in April of 1971. You can read more about WJJY-TV here: http://www.brainmist.com/wjjy_tv/wjjy_tv.htm

Great find! I have been interested in WJJY and to share a listing is awesome! Any idea if the 7:30 and 8:30am shows were from the state educational system that WJJY used to fill their schedule?

I think it's safe to assume that "Classroom" at 10AM was from OSPI/WILL-TV in Urbana. I have no idea about the programs between 7:30 and 10AM. I would imagine the "Film" at 9AM originated at WJJY, but I have no way to verify.

And ironically WJJY was the only ABC station in this listing to air "All My Children" in pattern--while the then-10 1/2 month old soap was delayed on KTVO and WQAD and "didn't play in Peoria" on WIRL (now WHOI) at the time. And when did listings for Iowa Public Television station KIIN-12 (Iowa City--later listed as "12W" in black on white channel bullets) first appear in the Western IL edition? IIRC KIIN may have signed on in '70 as the second station for what is now IPTV (the first being KDIN-11 Des Moines, which dates back to about 1959).

I'm not sure when Ch. 19 added "All My Children," but Chs. 8 & 19 were running AMC in pattern at noon a long time before Ch. 3 ever did. Over the years, Ch. 3 aired AMC at 4:30, 3:30, 10:00, back to 3:30 (I think when it expanded to an hour), and finally in pattern at noon (in 1981 when the noon news was cancelled).

From the looks of this and the Nov. 21 schedule that has just been posted, it appears that other than the noon Farm Report, WIRL (now WHOI) had shut down their news department for some time.

In addition to the noon farm report, WIRL had news at 5:30PM and 10PM on weekdays (they were delayed till 11 because of football on this schedule), and 10PM on Sundays.

Retro: This Week in TV Guide, December 22, 1962 - MSP Edition

Christmas, 1962 - 50 years ago this week to the day. This is one of my favorite issues. And what did Christmas mean on TV in 1962? Church services galore, Bing Crosby, Jerry Lewis, Amahl and the Night Visitors, Hurricane Carter, and one of the great football games of all time. As always your comments, positive and negative, are welcome. http://www.itsabouttv.com/2012/12/this-week-in-tv-guide-december-22-1962.html Merry Christmas, everyone!

Mitchell By the greatest football game of all time, are you referring to the USC-Wisconsin Rose Bowl game played on January 1, 1963? The Trojans holding off the Badgers 42-37. With so much offense, the game went longer than usual and with no lights at the Rose Bowl, Mel Allen doing the game on NBC-TV had a hard time seeing the last plays of the game. If so, I agree. It's one of the great college football games of all time. Cincinnati Kid Good choice, Cincy. Though I've only ever seen highlights of that game, I can remember being enthralled as a kid reading about it. I thought the score was almost incredibly high (it would be pretty tame today), and I was (and remain) sorry the Badgers weren't able to pull off the comeback. I termed the Houston-Dallas AFL Championship game as one of the greatest ever primarily because of the drama; as far as the quality of the game, I don't know that either team would have been a match for any but the bottom-feeders in the NFL. But as

entertainment it was undoubtedly near the top. Of course, it also helps that I actually have a DVD of the game, so I can report on it firsthand!

KAGA Channel 5 (CBS) Atlanta 1:00 PM What's My Line? KDEF Channel 9 (CBS) Chattanooga 1:00 PM That Girl I know why Atlanta didn't carry The Young And The Restless (surely 17 or 36 could have carried it, since they had CBS daytime programs as well as NBC's daytime programs), but why didn't Chattanooga carry The Young And The Restless? Also was The ABC Afternoon Playhouse an adult version of ABC's Afterschool Special? How long did this show last? Were there any shows of interest that came from this?

Where are you getting this KAGA and KDEF nonsense? WDEF, by the way, is Channel 12; WTVC is Channel 9. But to try to answer your questions, The Young And The Restless didn't start airing in Atlanta until July 1976; Channel 5 carried it at 1 PM until it went to an hour. I don't recall when Channel 12 picked it up, around 1977 or '78 at the latest. 36 wasn't on the air in 1974; and

Ted Turner, for whatever reason (read: money) was no longer carrying daytime shows turned down by the affiliates. I was at the University of Georgia at the time, and Y&R fans watched it at noon on WSPA/7. As for the ABC Afternoon Playbreak, it may have been intended as an adult version of the ABC Afterschool Special; it ran about once a month and usually presented original plays. It sounds like a brainchild of Marty Starger, ABC's head programmer at the time. Starger seems to have seen himself as his generation's Pat Weaver; he was going to put on all these highbrow specials and miniseries (such as "The Strauss Family" on Saturday nights in the summer of 1973, a production of "The Glass Menagerie," a miniseries about Shakespeare, etc.), but ABC didn't have the series strength to financially support his plans and most of them were scrapped. When first Fred Pierce, and then Fred Silverman, came in, all the highbrow stuff went south, although they did give the world "Rich Man, Poor Man" and "Roots" as miniseries. Playbreak, as I recall, lasted from the fall of 1972 until sometime in 1975. CBS even tried the same thing during the week in February 1974 between the end of "The Secret Storm" and the debut of "Tattletales," called "Daytime 90." I don't think it ever aired again.

Where are you getting this KAGA and KDEF nonsense? WDEF, by the way, is Channel 12; WTVC is Channel 9 Oops, my mistake, WAGA was Channel 5 and WDEF Channel 12. My apologies.

"The Odd Couple" normally aired on ABC in the 8 PM (ET) hour. I noticed that it was pre-empted on this date, likely for a Cousteau special (with WSB opting for "Ironside" locally).

Retro: "South Cackalacky," Sunday, July 6, 1969

Here it is--the first in my Christmas series of rare retros to mark the fact that I have some time to burn this season, something I did not have during most of the year. So enjoy this Yuletide treat (if the dates are off-putting, just fantasize about the warm weather on them and that will do the trick--honest).

What's "South Cackalacky," you say? A humorous nickname for South Carolina, the palmetto (you've got to be a Southerner to understand).

(columnist Suzy Knickerbocker, Martin Gabel, Arlene Francis, Bennett Cerf) WMAZ Ch. 13 Macon (CBS/ABC) 1 PM Ronnie Thompson (country music) More Christmas merriment now, bp, with my trademark brand of snark and nonsense. This beats British pantomime as a Yuletide tradition any day, I think. WSB, 12 Noon: Strange, but I always thought competitive bowling (in a game show-like format) was something only seen on Northern stations back in the day. But Atlanta had a lot of "Yankees" even then, so this may have been for homesick folks wanting a taste of Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Cleveland, New Jersey, wherever. WSB, 5:30 p.m.: Ray Moore was a legendary newsman in Atlanta for years, I understand. Anybody know if he is still living? He would have to be in his nineties if so. WSB, 6 p.m.: The newscaster had a most convenient name for the season: a homonym for "Wassell" is "wassail" as in the traditional hot British cider drunk at this time of year. WSB, 7:30 p.m.: Now Ludwig would claim that, wouldn't he? If that's the case, then Mother Goose is the great-great aunt of Donald Duck, and thus the great-great-great aunt of Huey, Dewey, and Louie (how many times removed or what, I can't imagine--it would make my head hurt to figure that one out). WRCB, 1 p.m.: I imagine Bundy's appearance on Meet the Press may well have been the

first presentiment the public received about what would become the Corporation for Public Broadcasting the following year, 1967. As things would turn out, over a decade later, AFAIK, PBS would become the first U.S. network to employ satellite connections to the affiliates, instead of the phone lines. WGTV, 4:30 p.m.: I am almost afraid to inquire what THAT might have been about. Perhaps an art film from NET or something. In any case, I suspect this didn't get any takers--can't say I blame them. Whatever it was, it was definitely not for kids. WDEF, 10 a.m.: If this was a CBS production, it speaks volumes about the fact that commercial broadcasters still felt some responsibility for cultural uplift. By the time I came along, the only things of that sort left were the occasional "Festival of Lively Arts for Young People" seen on CBS on Sunday afternoons. And those were gone by the early 1980s. People didn't know how good they had things back then--I am dead serious about that. In this age of thousands of channels, I am sure there are others than me who would BEG for classical music, serious theatre, ballet, and other fine arts to get at least an occasional airing on some channels other than PBS. Makes you wonder sometimes whether the Public Broadcasting Act did more harm than good, by deflecting FCC pressure off commercial broadcasters and casting cultural programming into the public TV "ghetto." I know I could get a good thread started on that alone, so I will desist here. WDEF, 10:30 p.m.: Appropriate for Christmas time, this was a family panel: actor Martin Gabel was the husband of "WML?" stalwart Arlene Francis. WMAZ, 1 p.m.: I take it this was the show that launched Thompson into the mayoralty of Macon in 1967. Thompson gained notoriety during his eight years in that position for his hard-line law-and-order stance toward civil rights, peace demonstrations, and the like. He bore the (pardon the reference here, but it is historic) moniker of "Machine Gun Ronnie." Thompson was the unsuccessful Republican nominee for governor of Georgia in 1974, and faded from the public spotlight not long after that. Thompson, FWIK, began as a gospel singer and parlayed that into local fame. Hell, I didn't even make one joke during all that. What's wrong with me? Oh, well, I'll make up for it with my Christmas-time surprise coming over the next few days. The only hint I'm giving is that these listings are from the Sixties and are from two different Southern markets. Just like you cannot open your presents until Tuesday, so you will have to check back to see. Meanwhile, may your houses be Grinch-proof.

"What's My Line?" took a sharp drop in the ratings after Dorothy Kilgallen's death in 1965, and it was around that time that WAGA dropped the show (WBTV Charlotte also dropped it and was running Andy Williams on NBC in December 1966). Ironically, when WXIA dropped syndicated "Line" in favor of "Concentration" in 1974, WAGA carried the last year of that version.

And in answer to the posting about "L'Enfance du Christ," it was a CBS presentation that pre-empted "Lamp Unto My Feet" and "Look Up And Live." It would be nice to see some productions of this sort (I think of the New York Philharmonic concerts with Leonard Bernstein, especially the "Young People's Concerts," that used to be a staple on CBS), but money-grabby corporations aren't going to pass up a potential profit for telecasts of this nature. But just look at what the networks offered that Christmas Day 46 years ago: ABC: the one-hour "Directions" special "Christmas In The Marketplace" (1 PM) "Saga Of Western Man: Christ Is Born" (4 PM) for kids, "The Dangerous Christmas Of Red Riding Hood" (7 PM) CBS: "L'Enfance du Christ" (10 AM) a special "Camera Three" Christmas show (11 AM on Ch. 12, 12 N on Ch. 5) "Christmas In Spanish Harlem" (6 PM) NBC: "Christmas At Washington Cathedral" (11 AM) "Amahl And The Night Visitors" (6:30 PM) How many programs of this type do you see on Christmas Day on the broadcast networks today? Absolutely none. Instead you get the Disney World Christmas Parade (sorry, no slam at Disney intended) and an NBA doubleheader on ABC, and that's about it.

And we never will again, bp. Dignified, quality TV of the type we grew up on is dead. Hence we haunt this place for nostalgia to remember "the way we were" (nod to Barbra Streisand here). PBS is just about the best bet for anything remotely serious tomorrow, I expect. Schedules will vary from place to place, but you can count on music specials, especially choirs. Merry Christmas to you and yours, friend. I knew I could count on you to put up with my foolishness for the umpteen years I've been posting. Now if I can only persuade my family to do likewise (!!!)

When a station is crowded out of all

but three daytime shows and a half-hour in primetime (with neither of the other two taking most of it anyway), it should not be surprising that the FCC got concerned about protecting U start-ups. Had the Feds not intervened in the WRDU case in RaleighDurham in '71, WATU would probably have never returned, IMO.

As that time of year grows closer, bp, I've just gotta know: 1) Whether or not the University of Georgia paid the control room boys on channel 8 at least double time for coming in Christmas Eve night. I sure hope that was the case; if I had had anything to do with it back in the day, I would have paid triple--and a Santa package for any who had children. 2) Whether WSB (channel 2) ran all-night movies on, say, the weekends back then, or if this was a special Christmas Eve "treat," so to speak. One suspects that these were aimed at "mamas and daddies" doing their Santa Claus bit before turning in. But, if one or more parents weren't careful, they might wind up asleep in the recliner or the sofa when the kids woke up to open their presents, and the young ones might inquire, "Gee, Dad (Mom), did you and Santa watch TV last night together? You made us go to bed, so wy didn't you go too? Guess Santy didn't leave you anything." (!!!!!)

WSB's schedule of all-night movies was a Christmas one-shot; the station even ran an ad saying that it was "all night Christmas programming." No station in the Atlanta edition broadcast for 24 hours on a regular basis in 1966. WGTV's engineers should have gotten extra for Saturday night the year 'round, because even as late as the late '70s the station didn't sign on until around 7 PM and might--just might--stay on until about 1 AM. By contrast, Ch. 15 (now Ch. 29) in Cochran and Ch. 18 in Chatsworth had a full Saturday schedule by the '70s.

According to that day's Boston Globe, WXPO-50 aired a half-hour newscast at 10 P.M. and did not list a ski program at 10:15. I suspect that a fifteen-minute version of the newscast aired over WXPO on this evening at 10 P.M., followed by the ski program. The ski show was hosted by Doug Wheeler who later worked at WSBK and NESN and the set was Captain Bob's old set from WHDH-TV.

The ski show was important as a ski area in Vermont actually paid WXPO cash which was badly needed then. Captain Bob's set was destroyed when the studio was heavily damaged by flooding in early 1970.

During Chet Huntley's tenure in New York, the NBC evening newscast was always The Huntley-Brinkley Report. It didn't become NBC Nightly News until Huntley retired and was replaced on 3 August 1970 by John Chancellor and Frank McGee, with David Brinkley contributing split weeks from Washington with Chancellor...

I don't know if this is true, but I thought I once heard that NBC briefly used the title

"Nightly News" in the Fall of 1956 when Huntley and Brinkley began co-anchoring, but changed the title after a short time (a few weeks??) to "The Huntley/Brinkley Report". ...for whatever it's worth, Wikipedia (yes, I am considering the source) lists the only variant in the program's title to be the occasional insertion of the primary sponsor's name into the title, making it The Texaco Huntley-Brinkley Report. This was a preactice that went back before Huntley-Brinkley's NBC News predecessor, John Cameron Swayze's Camel News Caravan, to the radio days of World War 2, when CBS' John Daly on the Sunday World News Today would switch to not "Columbia's correspondent" (CBS more commonly ID'd itself during programs as "Columbia" during the period) but "Admiral's correspondent" in London, Cairo or Honolulu, and Mutual's Frank Singheiser was "Your Sunoco News Reporter" three nights a week...

Channel 56 (WKBG) would become the second Boston station to have local color after WHDH (5) What year did WBZ-TV have local color in the studio ( VTR and film they had from the mid 60's)

I think WBZ-4 converted one of its studios to color in February or March of 1967, but not the other (used mostly for Rex Trailer's "Boomtown") until mid-1968. I know they had a color film chain as far back as the late 1950's as I have seen Boston Globe TV listings showing color feature films airing on a very occasional basis on WBZ as far back as June of 1957; I think they got a color VTR in the early-to-mid 1960's to record NBC color programs for delayed playback in color. I recall that for a few weeks/months after my parents got our first color TV set in March of 1968 that the studio segments of "Boomtown" were in black-and-white, but the cartoons were in color. At the same time, most local WBZ newsfilm was in black-andwhite until around June of 1968 (In fact, I believe most WNAC-7 local newsfilm was also in black-and-white until mid-1968).

And the reason you did not see Rex's late horse "Goldrush" all that much after "Boomtown's" switch to color in fall of '68 was that the hot and bright studio lights needed for color broadcasting were too intense for "Goldrush" to handle. So, probably the only time you saw "Goldrush" was in the color film closing "Hoofbeats, hoofbeats hoooooofbeats.........." at the end of the show, with Rex singing the song.

Retro: Carolina-Tennessee Friday, December 18, 1970

From TV Guide, Carolina-Tennessee Edition NOTES: TV Guide doesn't indicate if the PBS stations have in-school programs; for daytime I will list what TV Guide has for Chs. 2, 17, 29, and 33. Also, this is the night Lester Maddox walked off Dick Cavett's show after Cavett made a remark about the "bigots" who elected Maddox governor of Georgia. I was living in Birmingham and had picked up Atlanta's Ch. 11, where a Hawks game was on. When

the station's 11 PM news came on Maddox was the lead story, but then-anchor (later sportscaster) Bob Neal said Atlanta viewers would have to wait until Sunday to see it, since the station already had a movie scheduled at 11:30.

Retro: This Week in TV Guide, December 16, 1967 - MN State Edition

The week before Christmas starts with a flock of Christmas specials, a pair of Truman Capote adaptations, the Baltimore Colts' bid for an undefeated season, and another edition of Sullivan vs. The Palace. CBS presents an interview with Secretary of State Rusk and Secretary of Defense McNamara on Vietnam. There's a profile of Ed McMahon, and the humorist H. Allen Smith writes about people who don't watch TV. Fortunately for us, he's against them. http://www.itsabouttv.com/2012/12/this-week-in-tv-guide-december-16-1967.html As always your comments, positive and negative, are welcome. And now the broadcast listings for Saturday, December 16. Unless otherwise indicated, stations are in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

Sorry to spoil the party, but I have a couple of corrections for you: 1) KGLO-TV's location was not specified, and it was not a Twin Cities station. It was then the CBS affil for northern Iowa and extreme southern Minnesota, licensed to Mason City, Iowa, but serving mainly the Rochester/Austin market. Today the station is KIMT, still with CBS but on digital 42 (PSIP 3)

2) The "NBC News" was actually "The Frank McGee Report," which was a full-length half-hour (sometimes a full hour) documentary seen on Saturdays and Sundays at the usual news hour on most NBC affils, a la "60 Minutes." Although NBC had tried a Saturday evening bulletin with Robert MacNeil and Ray Scherer anchoring in the early 1960s, NBC gave up on that for a few years in favor of McGee's program, which did not include, AFAIK, a normal newscast therein. It was not until January 1969 that the Peacock channel re-entered the weekend newscast game, with a Saturday version of "Huntley-Brinkley Report," that for a short time had Chet and David alternate weeks doing solo, until NBC decided, due to low ratings and station clearances, instead to have second-stringers like McGee at the 30 Rock desk, apparently keeping the "HBR" name, though. In short, NBC was very much in flux during this period about weekend news, largely because of the changing developments regarding Vietnam and civil disturbances at home.

Of course you're right about KGLO. In fact, in past "This Week" listings I've probably mentioned its location. This time the cut-and-paste failed! Don't have the issue in front of me right now, so I don't know how it was listed at the time. This is good info. McGee was very good on NBC, and I always enjoyed watching him. I've always thought he showed a professionalism during the JFK assassination coverage that was sorely needed, and his coverage of the space program was informing without being overly technical. It's quite interesting, don't you think, that Huntley and Brinkley were on Saturdays, even if they weren't on at the same time? Unthinkable today that any of the major anchors would do Saturday news. I wonder to what extent this can be seen as an extension of the old 5 1/2 day work week, where people often worked a half day on Saturday? I don't mean that Chet and David had to do that, just the idea that it would be understandable that Saturday wasn't quite as separated from the rest of the week as it is today.

Mitchell H: I suspect that on Saturdays, either Huntley or Brinkley was live and the other probably had a taped piece included during the half-hour as well as taping their part of the opening ("I'm Chet Huntley, NBC News, New York/And I'm David Brinkley, NBC News, in Washington") and closing ("Good night, David"/"Good Night Chet, and Good Night For NBC News").

Oh, yes. NBC decided at first not to go the route of CBS, which started up its weekend bulletins circa 1966 or so with Roger Mudd at the desk. I am sure having Huntley and/or Brinkley on Saturdays was a ploy more than anything else to get stations to clear the program, something that "Frank McGee Report" wasn't doing too well, apparently (I

don't have a lot of TVG copies from that period, so I can't say for certain--sorry to also say I haven't closely at some of the retros posted here to find out about what stations cleared it). And, yes, a greater amount of the public worked, not only office jobs on Saturday, but other occupations, especially farming and building trades, on Saturdays too. So, in many respects, life in the home was much the same for adults as on the weekdays--only Sundays were different in much of Middle America, with church and family activities (and NOT shopping and restaurant-going, unlike today) taking center stage then, with the only daytime viewers on that day of the week being mainly sports fans. Sure, on Saturdays by that point, you had kiddie cartoons in the mornings because of no school and ball games in the afternoons for the men who got through with their work in time, but otherwise, what surprises me is that it took the networks so long (and local stations even longer) to pick up on the fact that the husbands and fathers of America were just as interested in news early Saturday evening as they were Monday through Friday. As I stated earlier, I believe that Vietnam was the watershed moment for network execs to realize that they needed weekend evening newscasts also, with NBC making the first attempt during the Kennedy administration, and CBS subsequently jumping in the fray in '66. By the time NBC got serious in '69, the U.S. was knee-deep in daily crises of every imaginable sort, and it did not look good, particularly to the FCC, to have local stations not carrying news coverage. We have left ABC out of this because, as we know, no attempt was made there until 1975, and it was a flop. The Alphabet channel wouldn't add Sundays until 1979 and Saturdays (for good this time) until well into 1985, for crying out loud. NBC, by the way, added Sundays in conjunction with the retirement of Chet Huntley in 1970 to establish a seven-day-per-week "NBC Nightly News," with the infamous three-man rotation of John Chancellor, David Brinkley, and McGee, with, like the Saturday "HBR" originally, no weekend anchor.

Interesting that the one Independent station, KTCN 11, doesn't sign on till 9am and is off the air by the time the hockey game is over, around 1am. Not very good service. By 1967, most Independent stations, especially on VHF and in a large city, were on the air the same hours as the network affiliates. Only a couple of shows are in color. And it's a pretty boring line-up. Lunch with Casey I think ran Mon-Sat. and I suppose was cartoons and some chatter with a host named Casey. That's good. But KTCN fills the morning with pretty low-rate movies. OK, maybe Independent stations used to do that on Saturday mornings, but not a three-hour double feature. There's only one off-network show I recognize, Laramie. No off-network sitcoms. No Burns & Allen or Groucho or Honeymooners or My Little Margie. No other off-network dramas, no Rifleman, no Sea Hunt, no Highway Patrol. I guess in Minneapolis, if you're an indie, you do an hour of polkas on Sat. afternoon. And kudos for doing a weekend half hour of news at 9:30. But you put your agriculture

show on at 9am, not 6 or 7am? And you don't have anything to follow the hockey game on a Saturday night? By 1967, a few stations around the country were on the air almost around the clock. In a market the size of Minneapolis, someone would stay on till 4 or 5am on Fridays and Saturdays. But not KTCN. Early to bed, late to rise. WTCN (not KTCN), Channel 11 (now known as KARE) has an interesting programming history. It started out as the DuMont/ABC affiliate, then went independent when ABC moved to KMSP Channel 9. As an independent, they were the home of University of Minnesota sports, Minnesota Twins baseball and Minnesota North Stars hockey(and before that their minor league hockey team), as well as various state high school tournaments. The schedule I've excerpted is perhaps not the best one can look at to get a representative sample of what their programming in the late 60s was like. As I documented here (http://www.itsabouttv.com/2012/09/this-week-in-tv-guide-september-7-1968.html), the typical prime-time schedule by 1968 would include 12 O'Clock High, The Munsters, The Addams Family, Wagon Train, The Invaders and Run For Your Life, as well as Star Trek, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and Twilight Zone. Later on they'd add shows like That Girl, The Lucy Show and the Merv Griffin Show. You can add to that various nationally syndicated football games, specials, game shows and regular 70s and 80s features such as the Jerry Lewis Telethon. Lunch With Casey was an iconic kids show, much beloved until it went off the air in the 70s. (http://lunchwithcasey.com/main/), and featured exceptionally creative bits that were, in hindsight, clearly inspired by Ernie Kovacs. And the matinee movie was more than just a movie, hosted by the famed Twin Cities pitchman Mel Jass. (http://www.pavekmuseum.org/jass.html) By the late 70s, WTCN had become one of the highest-rated independent stations in the country, and thus it was quite a surprise when, in the great affiliate shakeup of 1979, WTCN chose to team up with NBC after Channel 5, the longtime NBC affiliate, switched to ABC. So I think we need to be fair to WTCN. It was a very popular station in the Twin Cities, and even though it's an NBC affiliate today, the memory of it is still much-loved by those of my era.

WTCN was a regional "SuperStation" they were on the cable systems in the Dakotas, Nebraska, northern Wisconsin and I even got them in a hotel in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Of course that stopped when they became NBC.

CBFJ Channel 4 St. Johns (SRC) (transmitter was shut down on August 31, 2012 and is now seen on cable; likely was and still is fed from Montreal) Around the late-1990s, it would switch to CBAFT Moncton, after that station became available via satellite.

WDIV Channel 4 Detroit, Michigan (NBC) 5:05: Leeza (if a network show, delayed from previous day 11:00 am) At the time it was an NBC show, though affiliates practically showed the program anytime they wished. CJON Channel 6 St. Johns (NTV/CTV) 7:00: The Price is Right (badly chopped-up half-hour slot for NTV, and day-ahead of CBS) I believe NTV has shown a hacked-up version of the daytime TPIR for many years, at least after it expanded to an hour program in 1975. The edited version usually consisted of only a couple of pricing games and the Showcase. WXYZ Channel 7 Detroit, Michigan (ABC) 11:30: Donahue (his final season; in earlier years, it was produced at WGN in Chicago) By then, it was taped in New York; during that season, his former host station in the Big Apple, WNBC, dropped the show, practically calling the death knell for the long-time program. CHCH Channel 11 Hamilton, Ontario (Independent) 5:00: Northern Response 6:00: Dial-A-Date 6:30: Northern Response All infomercials. 7:00: CHCH News or Canada Tonight 7:30: CHCH News 8:00: CHCH News or Canada Tonight I believe the 5:30 PM ET (7PM NT) telecast was "Canada Tonight" and originated from Vancouver, with Tony Parsons as anchor. CITV Channel 13 Edmonton, Alberta (Independent) 4:30: (1PM MT / 12 Noon PT) Days of Our Lives (most likely day-ahead of NBC) 7:30: (4PM MT / 3PM PT) The Young and the Restless (day-ahead of CBS)

I believe one of both of these may be day-of, perhaps to simsub over the Spokane stations back in Alberta. CBFJ was relaying CBFT Montreal at the time, but switched its parent to CBAFT Moncton in 2010 (this also applies to CBFNT, the SRC transmitter at Port-au-Port on the West Coast). Weather maps on the regional Telejournal show the island of Newfoundland (the Labrador tx relay CBFT) as well as St-Pierre-et-Miquelon, where Le Telejournal Acadie is shown late-night (and France O SPM has a news supply agreement with SRC Acadie).

WMSL (WAFF) Ch. 48 Huntsville (ABC) 3:30 Nat Tate (don't know who he is, time approximate) bp, a quickie for ya. Tate hosted the de facto local version of Soul Train on Saturdays on WMSL. The show consisted of black high-school students dancing to the latest soul/R&B hits. As far as can be determined, this was the first instance of a local TV show in North Alabama being hosted by an African-American. The show ran until about 1974, after which Tate, a disc jockey (probably on the pioneering WEUP radio, Alabama's first-ever black-owned radio station) went into business ventures and, in later years, the Baptist ministry. Tate died in 2007, a resident of nearby Decatur, Alabama. 1974 was also the year WMSL-TV changed hands from local ownership to a Vermont-based company, so I suspect that was the reason for the show's cancellation. The Vermont group would also later dump the station's most famous local program, Benny Carle's children's show on weekday mornings (Carle hung on for a couple of years as station GM before going into business for himself as a radio station owner in Florence, Alabama). In general, channel 48 never had much luck in the 1970s against NBC affil WAAY and CBS station WHNT, in part because it was a transplant from Decatur, from where it broadcast on channel 23 from 1954 until 1969. It was not until AFLAC bought the station in the late 1970s, the station lost its mountaintop building in a 1982 fire, and NBC's (which it joined in 1977) ratings resurgence in the 1980s that channel 48 became a force in the Huntsville-Decatur-Florence market. Also helping was the decision of the owners of Florence's WOWL in the late 1990s to get out of the business and ceded NBC entirely to WAFF for the entire region, including northwestern Alabama.

I believe that when that Vermont company bought Ch. 48 it changed the call letters to WYUR. Nat Tate's show sounds like "Teenage Frolics," which aired for probably two decades on WRAL and was hosted by an African-American, J.D. Lewis. In fact, the last time I saw the show, in 1978, it had a set that was almost identical to that of "Soul Train." Strangely enough, in the Raleigh-Durham market "Soul Train" aired on WTVD, while "Teenage Frolics" usually ran just

before or just after "American Bandstand."

WOWL (WHDF) Ch. 15 Florence (NBC) 6:45 Earline In Storyland Perhaps the strangest local production in the region. On the surface, not much to it: Earline [last name: ] was a local piano teacher who hosted this weekly 15-minute program, where she dressed up in little girl doll clothes and told childrens' stories. It was a longtime fixture on Ch. 15, going back to its earliest days. HOWEVER, it's mentioned in Tim Hollis' early 2000s book on childrens' TV hosts that Earline's act was anything but. "Doll clothes" and little-girl voice mannerisms made up this middle-aged woman's personality in her everyday life. --Russell

WCIQ Ch. 7 Cheaha State Park/WBIQ Ch. 10 Birmingham/ WHIQ Ch. 25 Huntsville/WFIQ Ch. 36 Florence (PBS) 10:30 Tribute To Jim Croce ...I know that Jim Croce and Maury Muehleisen had taped an installment of Made in Chicago at WTTW/11 Chicago before their fatal plane crash that September. By the following September, Made in Chicago had been renamed Soundstage and was much more widely distributed to PBS stations. I'm wondering if this program was in fact taken from that Made in Chicago taping and WTTW used this as a sort of pilot for Soundstage on a national basis?...

WSBK-38 used to be very prevalent on cable systems in Canada because it carried the Boston Bruins from 1967-68 through 2001-2002 (and later broadcast games of the Boston Red Sox and Boston Celtics as well). From 1969-70 until 1983-84, the station would carry at least 60 regular-season Bruins'

games a year (about three-fourths of the team's schedule), often more. In the 1970-71, 1971-72, 1972-73, 1973-74, 1981-81, 1982-83, and 1983-84 seasons, WSBK carried about 70 Bruins' regular-season games each year. During those seven seasons, it was rare that a Bruins' game would not be televised. WSBK also carried at least 95 Red Sox regular-season games a year from 1975 through 1983; in most of those years, over 100 regular-season games would be covered by WSBK. There were a couple of years in the early 1980's when WSBK carried around 120 of the Sox' 162 regular-season games (basically, all but a handful of the away games and about half the home games) In 1984, the number of games of the Bruins and Red Sox was reduced with the formation of the New England Sports Network (NESN), which WSBK was once a part-owner of. From 1984 through 2000 with the Bruins, and 1984 through 1995 with the Red Sox, WSBK and NESN each split the two teams' schedules (apart from national telecasts) about equally. For the Bruins after 1984, WSBK did mostly away games (with a handful of home games) while NESN did mostly home games (with a handful of away games). For the Red Sox, WSBK generally did Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, while NESN did most of the games during the week. During the final two years the Bruins were on WSBK, only about 25 regular-season games (usually Saturdays, whether home or away) were on that station with NESN getting the rest (apart from national telecasts).

at the front, then full 7-day listings for WCAX/WPTZ/WRGB/WMTW, and then shoehorning the Quebecois channels' listings on to 2 pages in the back

Two notes: (1) "Cavalcade Of Sports" that week carried bowling. Almpost always, the show carried live professional boxing matches, often from Madison Square Garden in New York City. (2) Neither of the NBC affiliates listed in Vermont Video Guide carried Jack Paar's "Tonight Show", which was broadcast from 11:15 P.M. to 1 A.M. To save line charges, could NBC have not fed Paar to some smaller affiliates?? I could understand WPTZ-5 not getting the show for that reason, but Albany/Schenectady was a much bigger market. Or was WRGB offered Paar but passed, and another station in the market ran the show instead?? In Boston, the old WHDH-5 and not then-NBC station WBZ-4 carried Paar from November, 1957 (when the station went on the air; prior to that, Paar was not seen on any Boston station) until he left and in fact carried Johnny Carson until September, 1966.

KIRO 7 ran Conservative Evangelical TV shows like Oral Roberts Sunday Morning? HARD TO BELIEVE - BUT THEY DID...Why am I so surprised? KIRO was owned by Bonneville International which is a Mormon owned company. These evangelists call Mormonism a non Christian cult. By bothe Catholic and Protestant standards Mormons are not Christians but a comparative religion. Why would Mormons sell time to any Christian group??? Yes they make money but I would think religious beliefs would take precedence. They could have just run the hour of CBS Children's shows reruns and the non religious CBS show Camera Three but still preempting the 2 Catholic CBS Shows Lamp and Look Up & Live. By the way WWL TV was Catholic owned by Loyola University till the late 80's. WWL TV, while running Sunday mass and another Catholic show, also sold time to Oral Roberts (who was not anti Catholic and affirmed Catholics as Christians), Marvin Gorman, and Jimmy Swaggart (who is more anti Catholic today than he was back then though he had come publicly against Catholicism back then as well). I still cannot understand why a Catholic owned TV station would sell time to a religious organization that contradicts their beliefs. I believe WWL TV was run as a business and ran plenty of

stuff Catholicism disagrees with from both the right (Fundamentalists Christians) and from the Left (humanists and relativists). So by right by the book Catholic standards even CBS programming at times would be a contradiction. Just my thoughts By the way - I prefer the schedules listing the stations individually rather than the TV listings style...But both are okay

Based on a 1980 case, "A Killing in a Small Town" casts Hershey as Candy Morrison, a caring and reserved wife and mother who is shocked by the brutal ax murder of a neighboring woman. The ensuring investigation, however, appears to implicate Candy and sheds a different light on her personality, which is further revealed under hypnosis, in courtroom testimony and in violent recreation of the crime that caps the drama. 7 8a 9 13k 13s Roseanne Roseanne and Dan [Roseanne Barr, John Goodman] get a blast from the past when old pal Ziggy [Jay O.

Midnight 14 Star Trek Sioux City would be 3 years, 3 months and 8 days away from becoming the first "Late Show with David Letterman" home office when KMEG-14 passed on Dave's first CBS season due to the station's claim that two of the above shows (Cheers and Star Trek) which were still on their late-night schedule in summer 1993 brought better local ratings than the likes of "Tonight Show" (after Jay Leno's first year) and Nightline. IMO certainly there was no excuse why the station could have brought back a similar scheduling pattern and have Dave at 11, then Star Trek at midnight again (by 1993 it had become a back-to-back combo of Cheers at 10:30 and the Starship Enterprise at 11). I remember seeing a Sioux City Journal article about KMEG's decision to pass on Letterman when my family was staying overnight there on the way home from a Black Hills vacation that summer. Also, the Nebraska edition would be the home TVG edition for Wahoo, NE--another one of Dave's Late Show home offices.

Although listed separately, 8a KCAN Albion NE was a satellite of 9 KCAU Sioux City. 17 KTTW was running some religious programming during the day from some religious net, I think FamilyNet. This was gradually reduced as they picked up more conventional syndicated fare.

So at first KTTW seemed to be a bit crummy on programming. No sign of daytime syndi programs, but they did have Arsenio and Star Trek on the weekend.

Channel 8 used to be KCNA in Albion, and was NTV. Then it went indie as KBGT, and 24/7 for a short time. Financial losses caused it to switch to a KCAU satellite (why couldn't they just take KETV and make it a satellite? Isn't Omaha closer to Albion?), before moving to Lincoln and becoming KLKN in 1996. -crainbebo And P.S.-when did KMEG ever get news?

KCAU bought KBGT for not very much (I'm thinking less then $2-million.) and originally did have a little bit of separate programming, but that ended quickly. I think KCAU saw it as a way to raise their national spot rates with the second signal. Later, they figured out it could be moved to Lincoln. KMEG had news when they first went on the air in the late 60s, but dropped it in the mid70s. They continued with a few one minute updates per day for a few years after that. Sometime in the 90s, they added five-minute weather at 6 & 10pm. Somewhere around 2000, they put in a full-fledged news department. I don't think KMEG has been very successful with local news. Last time I saw any ratings (at least a couple of years ago) KTIV had about twice the news audience as KCAU and KMEG combined.

Something tells me that ain't right..... Cheers & 73 Um, uh...it was Saturday.

During the 1970s, the final Monday Night game was played on Saturday.

Regarding the listing of "Big Valley" at 12 Midnight on KSTW-11 as being in black-andwhite: Maybe the pilot was shot in black-and-white and KSTW was broadcasting it that night. A few filmed shows that premiered in the fall of 1965 (like "Hogan's Heroes" and "Get Smart!") had black-and-white pilots but the rest of the episodes were in color. Maybe "Big Valley" did, too.

Sgt. Billie Roth calls it "a controlled riot." For "a million people walking down the street drinking," it's Mardi Gras 1990. But for the New Orleans Police Departments, it's almost two weeks of 15-18 hour shifts of trying to keep peace. With public drunkenness a given, officers are kept busy breaking up and trying to prevent fights, keeping an eye out for pickpockets and stopping people from hurting themselves. "We're probably the nicest police in the U.S.," says Off. Desiree Gaudet, whose personal police blotter on one shift includes stopping a man who is "just playing" with a stun gun, and helping to break up a fight. This, she says, is "the calm before the storm." When the storm gets heavy, the Mounted Patrol is called upon to keep French

Quarter streets moving. Frequently they're clogged, and in one sequence Gaudet and partner David Morel must gently reprimand a well-endowed woman whose balcony flashing has created a logjam that has pickpockets salivating on the street below. 27 32 Lawrence Welk A summertime concert includes "Stardust," "Sleepy Lagoon," "Southern Nights," "Till There Was You," "The Band Played On." 7:30 2n 4 5h 5s 6 Amen Convinced of a client's innocence, the Deacon aims for a mistrial by putting on an inept court performance, which is not lost on the DA [Ron Glass]. 7 8a 9 13k 13s Head of the Class Viki [Lara Piper] gets help on her home-ec project from Eric [Brian Robbins], who prefers that his hidden talents for fashion design and construction remain hidden. 8PM 2n 4 5h 5s 6 Golden Girls Dorothy [Beatrice Arthur] tries stand-up comedy; Blanche [Rue McClanahan] tries conning over the IRS; Rose [Betty White] tries winning over someone who doesn't like her. 2v 8b All Creatures Great and Small City vet Granville Bennet shows James [Christopher Timothy] a taste of the high life. 3 10 11 14 Famous Teddy Z Award nominee Harland [Dennis Lipscomb] not only directs Teddy [Jon Cryer] to accept the award in his absence, but also directs him on how to deliver his nonacceptance speech. 7 8a 9 13k 13s Movie Lukas Haas plays the title role in "The Ryan White Story," a fact-based 1989 TV movie about the hemophiliac youth who was barred from attending school in Indiana after he contracted AIDS.

This was the week following President Kennedy's funeral, and as such, schedules were in flux. Case in point: two listings for the Army-Navy game - one for the originally scheduled date, November 30, another for the date the game was actually played, December 7. The listings are similar, but for one striking difference. Elsewhere, a profile of the angry George C. Scott, the start of the Christmas specials season, and more. As always your comments, positive or negative, are appreciated. http://www.itsabouttv.com/2012/12/this-week-in-tv-guide-november-301963.html And for a change of pace, the listings from the Kansas City edition of TV Guide for Monday, December 2:

By 1960, a lot of TV stations had videotape machines, so it's possible that WAVE-3 Louisville's broadcast of Lawrence Welk might have been on a 90-minute delay (I believe the show was fed live to the Eastern and Central time zones then). WAVE could have taped the live feed from 8 to 9 P.M. CST, and played the tape back at 9:30 CST. The half-hour between the end of the live show and the start of WAVE's showing it certainly would be more than enough time to rewind and cue-up the tape for playback.

Looking at these old Kentucky listings, it's never been clear to me why WAVE carried Lawrence Welk for only 30 minutes; I'd think he'd have been popular enough to warrant the full hour. At any rate, once WLKY came on the air, Welk aired for an hour and in pattern (except there was one brief period in 1970, just before the end of the ABC run, when WLKY aired him on a one-week delay at 6:30 and substituted movies at 8:30; that didn't work, and when ABC rearranged its Saturday-night schedule in January 1971 it was Welk at 7:30, Pearl Bailey at 8:30, and Johnny Cash (moved from Wednesday back to his original timeslot, as several other ABC affiliates did) at 9:30. We could probably start a whole thread on stations that did move Cash back

Two notes: (1) "Lawrence Welk" back then was being done live from 6 to 7 P.M. Pacific time, and the show apparently was live across the entire ABC network (outside of those stations that aired it on a delay). Here on the East Coast, it aired from 9 to 10 P.M. EST?EDT. I wonder why the show was not delayed on the West Coast until 9 P.M. PST/PDT. Maybe Welk and his Champagne Music Makers, after finishing up their live TV show at 7 P.M. PT, performed at a ballroom or nightclub in the Los Angeles area later that evening and didn't want their TV show to be delayed to 9 P.M. PT and conflict with their live performance.

(2) Was Jay Stewart of KTTV-11's "Town Hall Party" the same Jay Stewart who was Monty Hall's announcer/sidekick on "Let's Make A Deal" from it's debut in late 1963 through the 1980/1981 syndicated version??

What did ABC do back in the late '50s during October as far as the left coast air time of Welk? Was the show done from 5-6 PM PST, in order to air 9-10 PM EDT? (This was when many markets stayed on DST until the end of October, but where Cali went back to standard time at the end of September. They didn't extend it to the end of October until 1962.)

Welk and the boys played the Aragon Ballroom until it was torn down; after that they played the Hollywood Palladium (JFK got use of that facility one Saturday night in October 1961 in order to defend his policies on Cuba--a year before the missile crisis). Jerry Lewis also did his short-lived ABC Saturday-night show live at 6:30 PT in order to air in the East at 9:30 (Welk was pushed back to 8:30 ET to accommodate him).

I think you mean NBC News at 4:25 on Ch. 3. I know KYW is a CBS o&o today, but you correctly stated that CBS's newscast aired at 3:25 on Ch. 10 ("Secret Storm" was on 4-4:30). KYW's daytime schedule always reminded me of WSB's when both were with NBC, particularly the noon news followed by a talk show from 12:30-2 (Ch. 2 didn't have a late-afternoon talk show). I also notice the name Lou Davis and wonder if he went to Atlanta, because I remember that name on WSB.

Request: Dallas/Fort Worth Saturday and Sunday Schedules from 10/1998 to 7/1999

During the late 1960's and most of the 1970's, the old Baltimore Colts' home games always started at 2:05 P.M. EST/EDT (I believe it was due to Blue Laws in Baltimore). Thus, when a TV network carried an NFL doubleheader and the Baltimore Colts were in the early game, the late (4:05 P.M. EST/EDT) game would be joined in progress (midway through the second quarter) on those stations that had carried the Baltimore game. In the case of the TV listings for Eastern Washington State for December 3rd, 1967 from TV Guide, the Baltimore game started at 11:05 A.M. PT; other "early" NFL games would be seen on the West Coast at 10:05 A.M. PT.
