  1. Too bad, that Preemptions Thread is locked and archived, it would have been the perfect place to mark this infamous anniversary and how it impacted soap programming:

      I've always wondered what was the overlap of viewers watching in 1963 and 1981. Seventeen-and-a-half years later, it was once again ATWT being interrupted.

      That's an interesting question. Soap viewers tended to be pretty faithful viewers back then.

      I wasn't around for the first event, and frankly, I was around 6 years old back then but I only remember being home from school and turning on the television and being annoyed that they kept replaying the footage. I don't remember whether I eventually found something else to watch or turned off the T.V. My memories are a bit cloudy.


      I'd love to hear if there are others with clearer memories of what television viewing was like that day and how they felt when their favorite soap was pre-empted. Be candid, lol.

      Someone has the a snippet from ATWT where live news coverage interrupted the regularly scheduled program.
