Journal, Lloyd

Here’s the next installment in the “What I Was Watching” series. Let me know when you find these posts unbearable. Here’s the first instalment. And here is the complete prime time schedule for 1981-1982 so that you can play along at home.

7:00 7:30 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30
S CHiPs Alice The Jeffersons Trapper John, MD
M That’s Incredible M*A*S*H x Lou Grant

W Real People vs. The Greatest American Hero The Facts of Life x Quincy
R Magnum P.I. Diff’rent Strokes Taxi Hill Street Blues

  • x: Nothing on, didn’t watch.
  • vs.: Whichever one wasn’t a rerun
  • NOT Dallas: Seriously? Falcon Crest, but not Dallas?
  • No B.J. and the Bear [sniff]
  • Tuesday is a sweep for ABC in the lucrative 11-12 year old market
  • Mork & Mindy jump the shark with the addition of Jonathan Winters
  • I was in love with Trudy, so I couldn’t watch The Fall Guy with any regularity.
