What's on TV? Friday, September 19, 1975

An interesting Friday night to look at; one of the reasons I was drawn to this date was that there are lots of programs here that you don't ordinarily associate with Fridays. M*A*S*H? Only for three months, but this date fell in that range. Hawaii Five-O? I always think of it on Wednesday or Thursdays, but here it is on Friday, for those same three months, as was Barnaby Jones. Five-O, Barnaby, Rockford, and Police Woman make up four hours of crime dramas on Fridays, and a crime drama (The Kansas City Massacre) for a movie. Quite a way to end the week, isn't it? Let's get started; we're looking at the Minnesota State Edition.

  1. 2 of these game shows listed may still exist in 1 form or another. I've seen an episode of CELEBRITY SWEEPSTAKES at the NYC Paley Museum, donated by Andy Warhol himself, that featured Gavin McLeod in position #1, and he's listed on the show this week, and THE CHINA SYNDROME is known for having a background clip of THE MAGNIFICENT MARBLE MACHINE with Joan Rivers playing the machine with a contestant partner.

    I'm sure I spent many weekdays the previous summer watching that CBS afternoon game show lineup. I loved watching MUSICAL CHAIRS in particular, and I liked TATTLETALES even more than MATCH GAME.

  2. 1. Joyce Bulifant has a book coming out detailing her 4 marriages and how alcohol and co-dependency played a part. 2. On "Musical Chairs," one of the stars that week, Don Stewart appeared as lawyer Mike Bauer on Guiding Light. 3. Lawrence Welk pre-empting Sanford and Son? As Fred G. himself would say, "You Big Dummy!"

  3. Uh, is it just me, or is there too much money on Pyramid? The $100,000 version didn't come along until 1985 in syndication; at this point, the ABC version was still The $10,000 Pyramid, which had two fine game players in Anne Meara and Tony Randall. BTW, it would not be long until the show's top prize would be increased to $20,000. That happened the following year, in 1976.

  4. CBS specifically moved those shows to Friday to blunt the surprise success of NBC's lineup.

    1. Channel 10 in Rochester,MN is KTTC

    2. Of course. with M°A°S°H, Hawaii Five-O, and Barnaby Jones, how could they go wrong. You know how CBS rolled. Paley, Dr. Stanton, and Silverman did not play.

    3. I must correct myself. Channel 10 in Rochester, MN was KROC. However, they became KTTC in July '76

    4. Of course. With M°A°S°H°,Hawaii Five-O, and Barnaby Jones, how could they go wrong? You know how CBS rolled. Paley, Dr. Stanton, Dann, and Silverman did not play. They weren't called "The Tiffany Network" for nothing.
