What's on TV? Monday, July 13, 1970

This week's listings come from the Twin Cities, and while there isn't anything earth-shattering on tap, it's one of those days when you get a pretty good idea of what television was like in the day. It's a night with a mix of reruns and syndicated summer shows, and somewhere in there you'll hopefully find some of your favorites.

I'm not positive, but since school's out for the summer, I suspect KTCA was off the air until 4:30 p.m. Oh well, signing on for the day with Mr. Rogers isn't the worst thing in the world. Today, he teaches kids how to whistle.

The 7:30 p.m. movie Dial Hot Line is the pilot for the upcoming fall series Matt Lincoln, starring Vince Edwards as David Leopold. If all that sounds a bit confusing, it's because - according to the always-reliable Wikipedia - the name of Edwards' character was changed after the movie to avoid comparisons to the Leopold-Loeb thrill killing of the '20s. (Wikipedia also tells of a typically tart essay on the show by Harlan Ellison.) In the end, none of this mattered - the show failed to last more than 16 episodes.

He Said! She Said! is really a product of its time - none of the celebrities' spouses have names of their own, despite Brett Somers being a celebrity of her own; of course, her real fame comes with Match Game a few years later. And then there's Meredith MacRae's husband, Greg Mullavey, best known for Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman; he's still acting. For the record, Carlin's wife was Brenda Hosbrook. TV

  1. The Wild Wild West was canceled the year before because of its violence. CBS decided to bring the reruns back that summer in a later time slot. The show was a summer hit getting better ratings than its old Friday at 730 slot.

  2. Another game show listed here, IT TAKES TWO (ch. 5, 9 AM), was in its last month on the air this week. It involved 3 couples separately guessing numbers, such as how many years did the oldest dog live, from which a lucky audience menber got to guess which couple came closest to the correct numerical average. Only the husbands (or boyfriends/partners) are listed here, so whichever of Mickey Rooney's 8 wives he had at the time probably appeared with him. The Family Channel briefly revived the show with the couples being contestants (friends or same family members) in March 1997. NBC replaced the show on August 3 with DINAH'S PLACE, a weekday show hosted by Dinah Shore.
