The Preemption/Out of Pattern Thread

September 1978, Nebraska-South Dakota-Iowa:

SEARCH FOR TOMORROW aired at 3:30 p.m. (after Match Game '78) on KELO in Sioux Falls, since the station had an hour newscast from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

ALL MY CHILDREN aired on a one-day delay at 9 a.m. on KCAU in Sioux City and KHGI in Kearney. The stations ran news and The Cross-Wits at 12.

The soaps all aired in pattern on the NBC stations. I'm a little surprised nobody dropped For Richer, For Poorer, but I guess the attitude was to just let it play out its run. Of note: three of the five stations aired Donahue rather than the 9-10 a.m. hour of the network midday lineup, Card Sharks and Hollywood Squares (eventually Jeopardy!). KMTV in Omaha also appears to have passed on the network Wheel of Fortune to run the syndicated Gong Show at 10:30.

Nashville, plus northern Mississippi and Alabama, September 1977:

WOWL, the NBC station in Florence, Alabama, also aired ATWT and GL. The two CBS soaps came after the network lineup, resulting in a unique afternoon: DOOL at 12:30, DOCTORS at 1:30, AW at 2, The Gong Show at 3, ATWT at 3:30 and GL at 4:30. I wonder how long this arrangement lasted, especially since all the CBS stations listed aired all the soaps.

WHMA, the CBS station in Anniston, aired The PTL Club at the lead-in to LOL, with TPIR airing at 4:30 after Tattletales.

11:00am - Card Sharks
11:30am - Dannysday
12:00am - Action 4 at Noon

9:00am - The Jeffersons
9:30am - Alice

3:30pm - The Toni Tennille Show

 

So at some point between July 1979 and November 1980, KTVY dropped THE DOCTORS, but then brought it back sometime before June 1982. Also, KWTV's midday news, which aired at 11:30 a.m. in July 1979 (instead of SEARCH) evidently got moved up a half-hour when Y&R expanded. It appears to have stayed an hour until CAPITOL debuted. I guess this partially explains why KTVY didn't pick up SEARCH -- why bother bringing back a show that hadn't aired in your market for years?

Americus, Georgia, was an early adopter of Cablevision. Here's the morning and early afternoon lineup from September 1970.

Twelve channels total for $5.95 a month, but, being early cable, there were many repeats. Dothan was in the cable package. I'm not sure if their listings are for eastern or central time.

WALB (10) was probably also running Somerset at 4, but the listing neglected to include them in that slot.

My relatives lived in that area, and I seem to recall one summer when visiting (1996), I saw a commercial on this station for Bold & Beautiful airing at 11:30am. At the time, I didn't know if everything aired one hour earlier (as I wasn't sure it was on Mountain Time Zone or not) or if B&B just aired earlier than usual here.

L.A., September 1974:

Nothing unusual with KNXT (CBS) and KNBC's lineups. KABC and KEYT (Santa Barbara), however, deviated significantly.

11:00 The Girl in My Life (where Password would be)
11:30 $10,000 Pyramid (where Split Second would be)
12:00 Password (where AMC would be)
12:30 Split Second (where Let's Make a Deal would be)
1:00 All My Children (where Newlywed Game would be)
1:30 Let's Make a Deal (where Girl in My Life would be)
2:00 Newlywed Game (where GH would be)
2:30 One Life to Live (in its right slot)
3:00 General Hospital (where Pyramid would be)

December 1994

WINK, Fort Myers, was another CBS station airing Y&R at 4 p.m.

Seattle, May 1992

DAYS aired at 9 a.m. on KING, opposite Regis & Kathie Lee on KOMO (ABC) and Geraldo on KIRO (CBS). AW and SANTA BARBARA aired in pattern at 1 and 2 p.m.

B&B was not airing at 12:30 p.m. on KIRO, but rather on independent station KTZZ.

No As The World Turns on any of these stations? Or is that a misprint?

Earlier in the thread a June 1988 listing for Seattle had Days at 3 pm. I'm guessing that it moved to 9 am after the supercouple era ended and the kids watching after school lost interest. I wonder if Days went back to 3 pm during the Reilly sci-fi era when the kids were watching again.

So Seattle got B&B in 1992? I was so sure that B&B started in Seattle in 1994, or maybe that's when the CBS station started broadcasting it. We know Capitol did not air on the CBS station in Seattle so maybe an independent station broadcast Capitol there.

Looks like a misprint. 

Here's a September 1970 listing of a few of the channels from another area newspaper. Not much of the area could actually pick up the lone ABC station over the air. The first southwest Georgia dedicated ABC station was another decade from springing up.

Saw a promo where Days moves to 1 in Pittsburgh to make room for Judge Judy reruns. Hopefully people will eventually realize they're all repeats now. Days has been at 3 here since the mid-90s. We've always been a Y&R household but that show's so dull I don't think they really follow it anymore
