  1. I don't know why, but Jennifer Ferrin is the first guest on these (the ATWT ones at least) that actually surprises me. I always felt like she'd left her soap days behind her. I always loved her Jennifer, though, so it's a pleasant surprise for sure. I'm a huge Will & Gwen fan, so I'm glad to see Jen L. in there as well, I just wish JLS would show up as a surprise guest.
  2. I agree. And precisely because Faith had been plus size, and struggling with her body image, it made absolutely zero sense to cast Valentina De Angelis in the role.
  3. I actually didn't... so thank you very much for clueing me in! I just can't believe how many of these connections we continue to be able to make, absolutely love it. Kayden wrote "one of the very few ATWT episodes that I have". Would you happen to know if there are any others around? Since the video's unlisted, the channel shows no videos for me. -- I would also like to ask for help on something in this thread. There is a video on both Oakdalian ("Christmas 1989") and AsTheWorldStillTurns' ("ATWT 12 25 89") channels. That particular version of the episode c
  4. Wow, thank you so much... again! Some great sources I wasn't aware of! -- 2001 section updated
  5. New pre-emption confirmed: February 15, 1988: NBA Game Which leaves only 3 pre-emptions in this era... -- Thanks for passing these along. I was fully unaware of this amazing resource. Also, good job on your Y&R list. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one taking on this crazy challenge.
  6. I just found a second source hinting at a pre-emption for December 25, 1989. It looks like that is indeed the remaining pre-emption in that era and the episode on AsTheWorldStillTurns' channel is dated wrong. @Paul Raven I'm not sure if you can channel your search, but would you perhaps be able to confirm a pre-emption on December 25, 1989? 2003 section updated
  7. I can confirm that both 1991 episodes, as well as 2 out of 3 1993 episodes were not previously on YT. Adding them to the full episode list. I love finding channels like this. Seems like he's uncovered a box of old tapes and is uploading them. Here's to hoping this is not the last of it. Thanks for finding and sharing!
  8. Thanks for clearing that up! Speaking of Inaugurations... here's an overview of all 13 inaugurations that took place during ATWT's run: January 21, 1957 (Eisenhower's second term): pre-empted January 20, 1961 (Kennedy): pre-empted January 20, 1965 (Johnson's second term): pre-empted January 20, 1969 (Nixon): pre-empted August 9, 1974 (Ford): unknown January 20, 1977 (Carter): unknown January 20, 1981 (Reagan): unknown January 21, 1985 (Reagan's second term): unknown January 20, 1989 (Bush): unknown [listed regularly in one newspap
  9. 1964 was a leap year and, as a result, January 1, 1965 was a Friday (which might still have been pre-empted) and January 1, 1966 was a Saturday. Did you mean Monday January 3, 1966 for the Cotton Bowl by any chance? [EDIT:] I just found an overview of Cotton Bowl broadcasts on wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Cotton_Bowl_Classic_broadcasters). Looks like CBS had the rights from 1958-1992 and 1996-1998. It also lists all the exact dates (especially the not-January-1 dates threw me off in the past). Since we already know that about 75% of these caused pre-emptions, I'
  10. That clears up the October 2 - December 10, 1991 era! Great work!
  11. This one is interesting, mostly because it confirms a fear I already had. There are a lot of scripts in the P&G Television Script Collection (http://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/cgi/f/findaid/findaid-idx?c=wiarchives;cc=wiarchives;view=text;rgn=main;didno=uw-whs-mss00784), but I wasn't really sure how to process them. It only gives begin and end dates for each folder, which means there is no telling which episodes may have been pre-empted in between. I figured at least the begin and end dates for each folder must have aired, so I had marked those (in the updates I am getting ready
  12. With the new info, we now know - or at least have strong leads - for 15 out of 19 pre-emptions in the December 9, 1986 - November 3, 1987 era, leaving 4 unknown pre-emptions. Let me first say, in the interest of full disclosure, that it is possible that any or all of those pre-emptions are unrelated to the Iran-Contra hearings, and occurred. However, since we have no leads and a lot of remaining question marks during the I-C hearings, it seems likely that the pre-emptions were due to the hearings. I have taken all 44 days of the I-C hearings, crossed off the ones that - based on @f
  13. Please... by all means. I always love your additions to this post. Don't worry about double posting either. I will filter out any new info and add it to the list.
  14. Wow, that is amazing work! Thank you SO much for sharing this! Is it too much to hope you're planning on tackling O.J. pre-emptions next? I'm going to need a bit more time to work through your document in full, but you have access to everything I know in this thread. I will let you know if I find out more.
  15. 2009 section updated Thanks! Will add that in. It will show up in the update.
  16. The February 10, 1970 episode is listed in a script as being #3589, which means 4 episodes were pre-empted in between. We know about 1: January 1, 1971: New Year's Day February 10, 1970 - June 28, 1971: 4 pre-emptions, 1 confirmed, 0 leads. Status: open -- The January 30, 1970 episode is listed in a script as being #3582, which lines up perfectly, meaning no episodes were pre-empted. January 30, 1970 - February 10, 1970: 0 pre-emptions. Status: closed -- The August 25, 1967 episode is in the Research Collection
