  1. While I was digging into some historial newspapers for the Full Episode List, I found this fun excerpt in the March 11, 1984 edition of a paper called "The Journal" Although it's only a regional pre-emption, that doesn't help my episodes project, I can't help but wonder about the "something big" that was happening on the show in the week of March 5-9, 1984, involving Craig Montgomery being forced to confront his evil ways. Is this around the time he bombed Steve's truck?
  2. Ok, so I've recently been digging into some historial newspapers to find listings, and I have reason to believe that in 1981 Thanksgiving Friday was NOT pre-empted. I realize that although I've assumed both Thanksgiving days to have been pre-empted from the early 80s onwards, I have no actual Thanksgiving Friday pre-emptions confirmed before 1986, forcing me to re-think a lot of the info I have on the early 80s. I'll need to do some double checking on the years between 1979 and 1986, which will take some time. I only wish I had found this before real life started to kick back in again, but I'm really happy about this info regardless. To be continued...
  3. Another thing I've just noticed is that the episode numbers between the confirmed April 27, 1979 and June 17, 1980 episodes line up perfectly. If it is true that all of these episodes aired, it means that 1979 had no pre-emptions for Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Year's Eve, nor did 1980 have a pre-emption for New Year's Day. Another thing, though, is that UCLA has episode #6055 in their collection, which according to their info was taped on (Wednesday) August 29, 1979. Following the above logic, that episode would have aired on (Tuesday) September 4, 1979, less than a week after taping. Does anyone know if that sounds about right for those days?
  4. Funny enough, I already had that episode number linked to the episode in my file on my computer, but I see I forgot to update the 1982 section in this thread. I was able to figure out the episode numbers to a lot of 1982 episodes based off of the few episodes Patricia Bruder Debrovner uploaded a few months back. But it's always good when any of the episode numbers I've figured out are actually confirmed, so thanks as always! Bumping up 1982: We have almost connected 1982 to 1981, but what's odd is that there need to have been 6 pre-emptions between November 2, 1981 and February 1, 1982. Even if both Thanksgiving days were pre-empted (which they always were from 1982 onwards, but likely weren't in 1980!), as well as Christmas, New Year's Eve (which likely wasn't pre-empted in 1980 OR 1982) and New Year's Day (fell during the weekend in '83 and '84; was always pre-empted from 1985 onwards, EXCEPT for 2004 for some reason), there would still be another pre-emption unaccounted for. Still: I am amazed that we have nearly all of '80, '81 and '82 figured out, as well as half of '83.
  5. Me again! Would someone be able to confirm that the guy with Barbara / Eduardo at around 16.32 is Mark Kevin Lewis as Gregory Varner? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1W2sFg4o0Z8
  6. Sorry to re-open this thread, but does anyone know what happened to these tumblr pages? I have been enjoying reading old ATWT recaps for the last few months, but I notice they stop in the early 90s. The SOD covers page is updated through 2014, so I'm wondering if more will be posted, but since the pages seem to have been inactive for a while now, I have to assume the worst... Is there any other place where I can find early to mid-90's recaps (pre-soapcentral)?
  7. Great catch @adrnyc ! Sorry for not responding to this earlier. Since the February 16 episode ends with Dan Region inviting us to join again on Monday, I had marked the February 19 episode as having aired, but obviously, an unplanned pre-emption could have taken place. Since the 21 episode picks up directly after the 20 episode, and I assume ATWST hasn't mis-labeled an entire week, I am going to assume February 19 may have indeed been pre-empted. Please share if you find more during your watching. The only way we are ever going to find the real pre-emptions is by actually comparing the ends of episodes to the beginnings of subsequent episodes. This also means that between December 8, 1989 and May 11, 1990, in addition to the January 1 and February 19 episodes, only 1 more episode was pre-empted.
  8. OK, let's see if we can figure this thing out. Two questions (which you may not have an answer to, but I'll ask them anyway): 1.) When you say "rotated in this manner" do you mean they kept going in that specific order (NBC-CBS-ABC-NBC-CBS-ABC etc.), or just that they rotated in whatever order? 2.) When you say "CBS covered 19 days", do you mean CBS took on 19 days of the rotation cycle, or CBS aired Watergate 19 times in general (including the hearings that were covered by all networks)? I copied the Watergate-section of 1973 below to have some workspace. If I have interpreted your info correctly, we get this: 1973 5 17 Thursday ??? Watergate! CBS / ABC / NBC 1973 5 18 Friday ??? Watergate! CBS / ABC / NBC 1973 5 21 Monday ??? no hearings 1973 5 22 Tuesday ??? Watergate! CBS / ABC / NBC 1973 5 23 Wednesday ??? Watergate! CBS / ABC / NBC 1973 5 24 Thursday ??? Watergate! CBS / ABC / NBC 1973 5 25 Friday ??? no hearings 1973 5 28 Monday ??? no hearings 1973 5 29 Tuesday ??? no hearings 1973 5 30 Wednesday ??? no hearings 1973 5 31 Thursday ??? no hearings 1973 6 1 Friday ??? no hearings 1973 6 4 Monday ??? no hearings 1973 6 5 Tuesday ??? Watergate? NBC 1973 6 6 Wednesday ??? Watergate! CBS 1973 6 7 Thursday ??? Watergate? ABC 1973 6 8 Friday ??? Watergate? NBC? 1973 6 11 Monday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 6 12 Tuesday ??? Watergate? ABC? 1973 6 13 Wednesday ??? Watergate? NBC? 1973 6 14 Thursday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 6 15 Friday ??? Watergate? ABC? 1973 6 18 Monday ??? Watergate? NBC? 1973 6 19 Tuesday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 6 20 Wednesday ??? Watergate? ABC? 1973 6 21 Thursday ??? Watergate? NBC? 1973 6 22 Friday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 6 25 Monday ??? Watergate! ABC? 1973 6 26 Tuesday ??? Watergate! NBC? 1973 6 27 Wednesday ??? Watergate! CBS? 1973 6 28 Thursday ??? Watergate! ABC? 1973 6 29 Friday ??? Watergate! NBC? 1973 7 2 Monday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 7 3 Tuesday ??? Watergate? ABC? 1973 7 4 Wednesday ??? Watergate? NBC? 1973 7 5 Thursday ??? Watergate? CBS? 1973 7 6 Friday ??? Watergate? ABC? The exclamation marks indicate that we know CBS aired Watergate. The question marks indicate that CBS might have aired Watergate. The left column is based on a rotation cycle that goes NBC-CBS-ABC. IF all of that is correct, we may have just uncovered 17 out of 19 Watergate pre-emptions. Obviously, that's still a big IF. ANY info, from ANYONE, would be very much appreciated!
  9. Updated: Long overdue... Courtesy of Paul Raven's info! @Paul Raven March 25 was a Sunday... so that must have been a misprint, possibly the date was March 23 or 26?
  10. 1996 this time... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHaOhkgMkOo Around 4 minutes in, a scene starts involving three men, none of whom I recognize in the slightest. I think they have something to do with this Bill Mason figure that kept being mentioned in the episode, although I'm not sure any one of them is him. Other names that I think are related to Mason are Clegg, Switzer and Quinlan. I must admit I'm not very well-versed in 1996, and I'm quite hazy on the Bill Mason plot in general, so if anyone could shed some light on it, that would be great.
  11. Wait... you're saying AFTER KL's Nella left with Beau, she returned with VR in the role? I don't think that's right, is it? I have been trying to find out where KL's stint ends and VR's stint begins, but the character is on so little that it's kind of hard to figure out.
  12. I'm going to keep doing this, as long as you all don't mind... June 28, 1988: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HUoBZGf5FLw At 23:27, the first prize winner is drawn at the AIDS ball. Am I correct in saying that it is Nella Franklin? If so, does anyone know if it is Kasi Lemmons or Victoria Rowell in the role? Thanks in advance!
  13. Could someone help me identify a few characters in the December 30, 1993 episode? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GiGTddxH-K8 I am trying to find out who the couple is that Duncan and Jessica run into at around 2:44. Could it possibly be Dick Latessa and Ann Mitchell as Ambrose and Jane? I am also wondering if I'm correct in assuming the man they run into at around 25:53 is Jessica's brother Lamar? Is it Michael Genet in the role? Was Lamar involved with security at the Falcon Club? Thanks in advance! I think I may have found it: Neal Jones as Randy Selkirk. The character is mentioned at the start of the episode.
