However, it was a curious choice, moreso when Mark Goodson was basically throwing a rookie into one of the most iconic formats in game show history. Plus it's not like Peter Marshall had something to do at the time, with his Fantasy just being cancelled.

2003 Let's Make A Deal. The least said, the better. At least Wayne Brady and CBS have rebuilt the show's reputation and success.

NBC had at least 3 bad game show death days in its history, June 20, 1980 (which you reference above), Sept. 26, 1969 (Personality, Eye Guess, You Don't Say!, and the original Match Game), and Mar. 24, 1989 (Super Password and $ale of the Century). Someone above also mentioned how NBC's losing Let's Make a Deal in 1968 helped lead to the 1969 death day. I loved most of these shows, as much as I've seen them anyway, and was sorry to see them go.

Another double mistake recently:

Cancelling both Community and Growing Up Fisher in the wrong time!

I will never return to watch any of the NBC comedies right after both Park And Recreation and About A Boy end right away!

Default Why is NBC so terrible at making promos?

Here are some of the Peacock’s worst-ever promo photos.

I didnt know about this. Is there any more info. about this because I'd like to know? This almost seems like the Rural Purge that I mentioned a while back.

To me, the 2 I like that are mentioned above is Super Password and Match Game. I've never seen the other ones.

$ale first had 65 of its latter-day daytime episodes on GSN when the reruns started in 2013. Then late last year (Nov. 2013 to the present), the first 65 or so shows of the syndicated show started running. They've been through about 3 or 4 times, IINM.

A reason why all of the new fall series that were introduced on NBC in the fall of 1975 and 1983 were cancelled and failed to earn a second year was probably because a significant number of the new fall series that the new fall series that were introduced during the previous year (1974 and 1982, respectively) were successful.

Successful Fall 1974 series: Chico and the Man, Police Woman, The Rockford Files, Little House on the Prairie, and (to a lesser extent) Petrocelli, and Movin' On
Fall 1975 series: The Family Holvak, McCoy (part of the Sunday Mystery Movie), The Invisible Man, Joe Forrester, Doctors' Hospital, The Montefuscos, Fay, Ellery Queen, Medical Story.

Successful Fall 1982 series: Cheers, Family Ties, St. Elsewhere, Knight Rider, Remington Steele, Silver Spoons
Fall 1983 series: Boone, Bay City Blues, We Got it Made, Mr. Smith, Jennifer Slept Here, Manimal, For Love and Honor, The Rousters, The Yellow Rose

Does the recent controversy surrounding Brian Williams count?

Yes their news outlet has always been a nest of lying propagandist from falsely saying that handgun ammo coated with Teflon can penetrate body armor and making it public that the police are issued body armor with interviews with criminals who said that they will start aiming for their heads, illegally converting a semi auto AK to full auto just to push for their ban to the more recent editing of the George Zimmerman 911 call to make him appear to be the aggressor and the fact that not only does NBC refuse to hold the news outlet accountable but also backs their agenda so as far as I'm concerned NBC can eat it.

In 1989, NBC cancelled its' entire fall line up. I don't remember the shows but it did.

Of course you don't remember the shows...they were cancelled.

That depends on who you ask. Considering that FOX News' reporters can get away with lying and embellishing stories all the time and they get to stay on the air, it seems unfair for Brian Williams to be forced out for 6 months. But NBC I guess has more at stake and a different type of viewership. That's my opinion anyway.

Wait a minute. Now I remembered a couple of them. They were Baywatch( which had a longer life in syndication) a sitcom from Mel Brooks and a spin off character from the movie Jagged Edge which starred Robert Loggia.

St. Elsewhere was never really successful, only had good demographics, probably same thing with Silver Spoons which was never top 30 hit.

This season is probably worst for NBC in terms of new scripted shows, I'm pretty sure that A.D. and Odyssey will flop, latter most likely because it looks like another Allegiance.

My comment was tongue-in-cheek.
