What I was watching 1979-1980

First, I should point out that this is Lloyd. Lauren has better taste in all things, so she was maybe watching something completely different… more sophisticated, no doubt. Here’s the complete prime-time lineup for the 1979 – 1980 season.

  7:00 7:30 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30
S Mork & Mindy One Day at a Time Alice The Jeffersons Trapper John, MD
M Little House on the Prarie M*A*S*H WKRP in Cincinnati Lou Grant
T Happy Days x Three’s Company Taxi x x
W Real People Different Strokes x x x
T1 Quincy Buck Rogers in the 25th Century 20/20
T2 The Waltons Barney Miller x 20/20
F Fantasy Island vs.
The Incredible Hulk
The Dukes of Hazard NOT Dallas
S CHiPs B.J. and the Bear vs.
The Love Boat
Hart to Hart

Notes:

  • x: Nothing on, didn’t watch.
  • Thu 1: Dad not home
  • Thu 2: Dad home
  • vs.: Whichever one wasn’t a rerun
  • NOT Dallas: This is the only show I remember not being allowed to watch.

What about you?

    I liked all those shows. A milder, kinder time.

    I watched many of those shows, but none that were on ABC. We didn’t get that channel. I’ll have to research Real People. I know I watched that, but only vaguely remember it.

    Some of these shows I’ve never watched -- mostly the cop shows.

    Also, I don’t know what was wrong with your Missouri programming, but Love Boat and Fantasy Island were both on Saturday night, if I remember correctly, which I probably don’t.

      I remember Love Boat and Fantasy Island on Saturdays too. That would have been in Iowa.

        They were both on Saturday, but not this season. It is amazing how much the daily lineups changed from season to season in the early 80’s.

          You beat me to it. I was scrolling through the different years too. How did people keep up with what show was on when? TV Guide, right? I remember seeing them in grocery store checkouts all the time.

R, mateys!

Well, we did it. I have to say, if you are ever going to celebrate a holiday in preschool, save it for a Friday. The week is over and you don’t have to worry about a repeat of the day’s shenanigans because you ‘ll have a weekend for them to forget all about it. Today […]

Fire

With a title like that you might think this is Lauren. Well, it turns out that anyone can make fire. Lauren let me make the fire when we went camping last week. I think she’s trying to make me want to go camping again. I did have a nice time making the fire, but I lost […]

I shall vanquish thee!!!

My job involves teaching for most of the day, and around mid-afternoon I go do do other parts of my job. Every so often that involves loading the dishwashers with the snack dishes. Today was one of those days. There were too many dishes for one washer, so I unloaded the clean dishes out of […]

Most excellent lighting idea.

Whoever invented this, I want to kiss them! It’s a nightlight that is part of the faceplate of the outlet. You just snap it in place – no wires – and it robs a tiny bit of electricity from your home to power itself. Very cool! It will be mine, oh yes – it will […]
