#1 New York Times Bestselling Author & TV Producer
That promo is both interesting and sad at the same time. Interesting from a nostalgic point-of-view, and yet a sad commentary on the state of NBC’s programming during the fall of 1978. Of the 8 new series featured in the ad (THE WAVERLY WONDERS, LIFELINE, GRANDPA GOES TO WASHINGTON, WEB, SWORD OF JUSTICE, DICK CLARK’S LIVE WEDNESDAY, WHO’S WATCHING THE KIDS, THE EDDIE CAPRA MYSTERIES), not one lasted out the season. And just as telling: among the mid-season replacements that NBC had waiting in the wings was SUPERTRAIN.
