What was on TV January 20th through 26th, 1979
This week's issue is a week behind, but timely since it features the 1979 Superbowl. Special thanks to friend John for supplying the humor.
This critic complains that life on TV isn't realistic enough. I wonder what he thinks of reality tv now. Careful what you wish for.
Libby's Libby's, Libby's on the label, label, label, you will like it, like it, like it, on your table, table, table.
Wojo and his girlfriend discuss commitment issues? Sounds like a very special episode of "Barney Miller."
I think Dk Fusion was doing a little fibbing when they touted "no fakey rug look." It looks pretty fakey to me.
This is how weird my young life was. I know who Bill Hayes/Doug Williams is. My mom watched "Days of Our Lives" every day (still does). I know the characters, the music, the plot lines. Every snow day and summer vacation day I had to endure it for one hour until I could get back to cartoons and games shows. Oh, and hey Bill, you made an album you're so happy about you can't stand it? The feeling's mutual.
The mystery gift with the "Olde World Cuckoo Clock" COULD be worth $5 but chances are it WILL be worth $.25.
Way to try to cash in on "Smokey and the Bandit" while advertising this Burt Reynolds stinker.
"Kate is Young, In Love...AND DYING!!!!!" The 1970's were full of melodramas like "Sunshine".
I'm sure William Shatner gave a muted and understated performance as an astronaut with the power to communicate with dolphin's and control people's minds. Nah! He was probably hamming it up left and right.
That's a sweet Frank Frazetta painting but I can't quite figure out what it has to do with Battlestar Galactica.
The Hong Kong dollar may only cost a dime but the kicker is that they are worth less than a penny.
Whatever you do, don't google "beef marathon" today.
Oh Lord, the Superheroes Roast. Rhoda Rooter? Ghetto Man? Wha? Here's a small clip, if you can stand it.
I remember when "The Dukes of Hazzard" premiered. My Mom said, "I love those shows where they make the cops look like fools." I swear to you she said that.
The new NBC didn't last too long.
Look at all the standard features on that Chevette! A battery? A steering wheel? Tires? AM radio? Man, that thing is LOADED!
