Amid the beer and cigarette ads, the issue featured a splash page for every new show:
Some would be big hits:
Some, not so much...plus, here's a Lucky Strike ad Don Draper would never have approved
"The Insiders"...can you say Miami Vice rip-off?
Behold! Another failed post-Baretta Robert Blake vehicle...and another failed TV series based on a movie
Here's some of the listing pages...was Hulk Hogan really a role model?
As you can see, at 5:30 we had our choice of three different Andy Griffith episodes. On the right is an ad for a 1980s version of Netflix. Available in VHS or Betamax! And what a selection!
Some amazing viewing choices on this Saturday night. There's a Spielberg directed TV movie, a Laurence Harvey film I've still never seen, an episode of the great Route 66 TV series and several segments of USA's Night Flight, which was always an edgy and interesting program. There's even a rerun of the A&M/Alabama game in case you missed it.
I guess when folks weren't smoking cigarettes and watching TV, they were listening to music. Here's an ad for RCA music service, which was sort of a second rate Columbia House. Tears for Fears, anyone?
