I wonder if NBC would have made a preemptive move to grab The Price is Right from CBS? If so, that creates a pretty good lineup.
10am The Price is Right
11am Wheel of Fortune
11:30 Scruples

NBC Daytime passing on Scruples in 1982. The Scruples mini-series was a ratings-getter in prime-time and a daytime continuation/adaptation was pitched. I would've had Scruples replace Texas instead of a forgettable block of game shows. Scruples could've aired at 2, 3 or as a half-hour at 11:30 after Wheel.

NBC also considered moving Flamingo Road to daytime around the same time. That would've been difficult because that show had 'prime-time' people in key roles that would be lost in the move to five-day-a-week daytime.

Passing on the Teen Titans in 1983 and X-Men in 1989. Teen Titans would've gelled well in the late-morning with Mister T and Kidd Video. The 1989 X-Men cartoon had a nice animation and a better cast than the 1992 Fox Kids series. I would've picked up X-Men instead of Karate Kid or pair X-Men with Karate Kid and reduce the disappointing, final season of Smurfs to 30-minutes.


Not sure how my NBC affiliate might have handled X-Men, given that they still had wrestling on Saturday mornings. Maybe they would have aired the wrestling after SNL or aired X-Men in a earlier slot.

divesting from sitcoms after "Friends" and "Frasier" ended their runs and stuffing the schedule with reality shows, hence the 2004-05 season landed NBC in the basement for, as it turned out, nine seasons

Canceling you don't say in the late 60s when Tom Kennedy and his family just moved into a new house

Making KYW-TV (on Channel 3) its Philadelphia affiliate. When I was a kid, living in southeastern Pennsylvania, KYW would show local programming in prime time, so some of NBC shows were either aired on another Philadelphia channel or not aired in Philly at all. WCAU-TV (on Channel 10) was the CBS affiliate in Philadelphia. In the mid-nineties, the two stations switched networks.

EXCLUSIVE: NBC's '$69 MILLION mistake!' Network execs slam floundering Megyn Kelly as they reveal she is making $23M yearly in a three-year deal

Here are the factors to why NBC wanted her
  • Attacked by Trump and was given sympathy card. Played the damsel in distress role. Mainstream media ate it up.
    Increase star power at NBC. Andy Lack wanted a well known presence on NBC.
    Try to get conservative viewership. NBC wants to get conservative viewers to their network and they though Megyn's work at FOX would work in getting them there.
    Asthetics, blonde, well spoken and outspoken
    Possibly being groomed to replace Matt Lauer or Savannah Guthrie. Today Show's ratings are on the decline they want to slowly push some of the hosts out.

Actually, KYW was not alone in preempting programming. All stations owned by Westinghouse Broadcasting at the time, like KYW, preempted certain hours of programming content, in favor of local or syndicated programming. Personally, I actually somewhat like it when network affiliates preempt certain hours of network programs in favor of local content, as it shows that they actually care about what goes on in their communities and don't just think about trying to be a generic station that only shows syndicated programming outside of network hours.

There was this one NBC show on Tuesday nights I always wanted to watch that was pre-empted by KYW and thus shown in the Philadelphia area on a local UHF station on Sunday evenings before prime time. It was almost impossible to catch it then. This was in the late 1970s, before VCRs. The show was canceled after one season, so ultimately it didn't matter. Still, the local UHF station should have been the one involved with local programming.
