'80s Game Show Schedules
« on: May 30, 2019, 09:38:02 PM »
In researching for the other topic, I came upon something weird in Milwaukee...

NBC must've really wanted the low channel number of WTMJ, because the latter party sure did not want a lot of NBC's game shows, especially in the early '80s. (They were also famous for dumping Carson in favor of Quincy reruns in the mid to late '80s.)

All schedules taken from October 1, or close to it if October 1 fell on a weekend.  Overnight listings were limited.  Any omissions were unintentional.  I threw 1990 mainly because I was trying to remember what station aired Challengers in my market.

Could you enlighten me as to what NBC's possible interest in the low channel number has to do with the number of game shows said station did or did not air?

Apparently the show aired in syndicated reruns during the '84-'85 season. I noticed our ABC affiliate aired it in the morning around that same time.

10:00 a.m. WISN 3's a Crowd

Either this was A) The "Three's Company" spinoff (I'm pretty sure it was, actually), or B) a major screw-job towards Milwaukee's hometown boy.

It was the "Three's Company" spinoff. Considering it only had 22 episodes, it only took ABC 4 weeks and a couple of days to run all the episodes. :)

Yep, WHTM (ABC) in Harrisburg also aired these at 10:30am.

Summer of '84 OTA in NW Alabama was fun:

6 - ABC Birmingham
15 - NBC Florence
19 - CBS Huntsville
31 - ABC Huntsville
42 - CBS Birmingham
48 - NBC Huntsville

09am - 19/42 - Pyramid
0930  - 19/42 - Press Your Luck
10am - 19/42 - Price
         - 48      - Wheel
1030  - 48      - Scrabble
11am - 6/31   - Family Feud

1230 - 6         - Love Connection

2pm - 15/48 - MGHS Hour
3pm - 15       - Body Language
330  - 15       - $ale
4pm - 15       - Wheel
430  - 15       - Scrabble

6pm - 42       - Joker's Wild
630  - 42/48  - Tic Tac Dough


Channel 15 in Florence was great - through most of the 80s they inverted the NBC daytime schedule and were a CBS secondary even though there were 2 CBS affiliates in the area.  I could record the CBS daytime while in school, come home and watch NBC daytime after school, and record CBN/USA in the afternoon and not miss a show.

I spent my childhood between Dallas and Norfolk in the mid-to-late-80s. Below are the October 13, 1986 Dallas-Ft. Worth and July 11, 1988 Daily Press listings, with a few notes.

Dallas/Fort Worth
KDFW-4 (CBS)
KXAS-5 (NBC)
WFAA-8 (ABC)
KTVT-11 (IND)
KTXA-21 (IND)
KDFI-27 (IND)
KDAF-33 (IND)
KXTX-39 (IND)

KDFW
9:00 am
(4) $25K Pyramid
(11) Strike it Rich

9:30
(4) Card Sharks
(11) Crosswits

I distinctly remember Strike it Rich and Crosswits airing in the mornings, and seeing it at my daycare. I know it was a few months prior, but IIRC, Perfect Match also aired in the mornings, on KXAS.

10:00
(4) TPiR
( 8 ) Celebrity Double Talk

11:00
(5) Scrabble

11:30
(5) Wheel of Fortune

2:30 pm
(5) Hollywood Squares

3:00
(4) All New Dating Game

I could've sworn at one point, KXAS aired Super Password in the afternoons, but I can't find anything from this TV Guide issue. Looks like it replaced Scrabble in 1987, according to another issue I have.

4:30
(5) Jeopardy!

5:30
(27) $100K Pyramid

6:00
(27) $1M Chance of a Lifetime

6:30
(4) New Newlywed Game
(5) Wheel of Fortune

I've told this story before, but as a kid, the Lorimar-Telepictures logo used to scare the hell out of me, and as a result, I refused to watch Chance, but would watch Rafferty's Card Sharks, which I swore came on at 6:30 on (27). The TVG shows Harper Valley reruns, however.


Norfolk/Portsmouth
WTKR-3 (CBS)
WAVY-10 (NBC)
WVEC-13 (ABC)
WYAH-27 (IND)
WTVZ-33 (IND)

9:00 am
(13) Jeopardy! (reruns?)
(33) Slime Time

9:30
(13) Love Connection
(33) Treasure Mall

Slime Time and Treasure Mall aired only on Fridays; I had no idea it even aired here, nor that it was a weekly show.

10:30 am
(3) Card Sharks
(10) Classic Concentration

Apparently WTKR dropped Card Sharks that fall, replacing it with Sweethearts. By January 1989, they added Family Feud and Hollywood Squares from 9-10 am. Looks like WAVY dropped $ale of the Century by summer 1988, although I do remember it seeing it at some point and being mesmerized by Jim's lighted podium.

11:00
(3) TPiR
(10) Wheel of Fortune

11:30
(10) Win, Lose, or Draw

12:30 pm
(10) Scrabble

5:00
(27) (Super Sloppy) Double Dare

7:00
(13) Wheel of Fortune

7:30
(3) Win, Lose, or Draw
(10) Hollywood Squares
(13) Jeopardy!

Weekend reruns of Wheel/Jeopardy! on Saturdays, WVEC, 7-8 pm.

That fall, WYAH added Finders Keepers at 4:30 pm, while WTVZ added Fun House at 5:30. Family Feud joined WTKR's daytime and evening lineups in early-1989; Relatively Speaking aired on WTVZ at 1:00 pm by that same time.

Off-topic: I bought the TV Guide issues mainly because of another vague memory that's sat in the back of my mind at least 30 years. When I lived in the Dallas area c. 1986-87, I could've sworn The Greatest American Hero reruns aired in the evening or late at night. Anyone recall this who lived in that area at the time?
