What I wasn’t watching 1983-1984

October 23, 2014

Journal, Lloyd

There was absolutely no change in the shows I watched from the 82-83 season to the 83-84 season. So, instead of finally just putting this series of posts to rest, here are the shows that I was least likely to watch. And here is the complete prime time schedule for 1983-1984 so that you can play along at home.

7:00 7:30 8:00 8:30 9:00 9:30
S Archie Bunker’s Place Gloria ABC Sunday Night Movie
M Square Pegs Private Benjamin N.F.L Monday Night Football
T Father Murphy Gavilan Hart to Hart
W Tales of the Gold Monkey Alice Filthy Rich Tucker’s Witch
R Joanie Loves Chachi Star of the Family Too Close for Comfort It Takes Two Knot’s Landing
F The Power of Matthew Star Dallas The Quest
S T.J. Hooker Gimme a Break! Love Sidney The Devlin Connection


  • There are so many of these that I have absolutely no memory of.
  • I actually don’t dislike these; they just lose in their time-slot
    • Hart to Hart
    • Alice
    • Too Close for Comfort
  • I actually ended up watching Joanie Loves Chachi fairly often because my sister, who normally has pretty good taste, really liked it.

    I at least recognize most of them, though I have no memory of the show you feature in the banner picture. I do remember that my mom liked Hart to Hart and that the family watched it together.

    Ha! I also did not watch these shows. I tried to like Joanie Loves Chachi, but it didn’t happen.


  3. Peggy Said on:

    I watched several of your not watched shows. I too liked Hart to Hart and always watched it. My mom used to call it the ‘daahling’ show, because the Harts were always calling each other ‘daahling’.

    I also like Joanie Loves Chachi & Love Sidney.

    You might be noticing the absence of a new post today. I have a headache, so today is a day off. Peace out.
