Here’s the next installment in the “What I Was Watching” series. I’m pretty sure that I’m the only one who finds this fascinating. Here’s the first instalment. And here is the complete prime time schedule for 1980-1981 so that you can play along at home.
|S||CHiPs||Alice||The Jeffersons||Trapper John, MD|
|M||That’s Incredible||M*A*S*H||x||Lou Grant|
|T||Happy Days||Laverne & Shirley||B.J. and the Bear||Hart to Hart|
|W||Real People (unless Daisy was guest starring on Enos)||Diff’rent Strokes||The Facts of Life||Quincy|
|F||The Incredible Hulk vs. Benson||The Dukes of Hazard||NOT Dallas|
|S||WKRP in Cincinnati||(2nd half of) Barbra Mandrell & The Mandrell Sisters||The Love Boat||Fantasy Island|
- x: Nothing on, didn’t watch. (way fewer of these than in 1979-1980)
- !?!?!?!: This was a real conundrum. Here were the choices:
- Mork & Mindy / Bosom Buddies
- The Waltons
- Buck Rogers in the 25th Century
- vs.: Whichever one wasn’t a rerun
- NOT Dallas: This is the only show I remember not being allowed to watch.
- I fully admit that I should have been watching Hill Street Blues instead of Fantasy Island
