Passing up a Chevy Chase-Beverly D'Angelo sitcom for Uncle Buck. Are you kidding me? I'd rather watch Chev and Bev than an 80s movie butchering sitcom!

Like Uncle Buck couldn't sink lower than the first TV adaptation w/ Kevin Meaney!

I think that was done because Who's the Boss has been losing audience and ABC needed something that can attract audience at Tuesday 8pm, it was good move for FH but bad for Friday night, Family Matters wasn't strong as FH.

I don't know if had written this before but biggest mistake for ABC was moving Laverne & Shirley to Thursday night, but still how can #1 show fell below top 30 just because of change of time-slot. Mork & Mindy should have stayed on Thursday 8pm and L&S maybe on Thursday 9pm.

The Ropers - either on Tuesday or Thursday night in S2.

All those changes in late 70s made ABC lose its #1 place.

Laverne and Shirley must have been a timeslot hit being sandwiched between Happy Days and Three's Company. Once moved away from a protected slot it suffered.

I can see Zucker's point. I mean you lose the NFL, MLB and then NBA, you figure your teflon. Boy, was he wrong. Just proves how much sports plays a role on network tv.

It didn't, Full House was on Friday 8pm while QL was on Friday 9pm in S1 and Wednesday 10pm in S2, only in S3 and S5 both shows ran against each other.

Rescue 911 didn't have trouble competing with FH.

I think that would have meant Barney Miller being shifted to Sundays at 8pm. But what do you think about having Laverne & Shirley at 8pm and Mork & Mindy at 9pm if a move like that happened?

My ABC Thursday 1979-80 schedule:

8:00pm - Mork & Mindy
8:30pm - Benson
9:00pm - Laverne & Shirley
9:30pm - The Ropers
10:00pm - 20/20

Barney and Soap on Sunday 8pm.

L&S had no competition on Thursday night, CBS was airing 8th season of The Waltons and NBC sci-fi flop Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, even new comedy Benson managed to land in top 25.

Wait, Chevy and Bev were going to have a tv sitcom? I never knew that.

I never saw the Uncle Buck tv show. It was THAT bad???


Also, I would never turn away Gene Rayburn. How do you turn away the guy who helped built the original Match Game??

Two words: Age discrimination. Rayburn was 72 at the time but could still run circles around the younger hosts!

Also, in their defense about The Chevy Chase-Beverly D'Angelo sitcom, Chevy Chase seemed to not be with the program. If you watched the SNL 40th anniversary special, you'll know what I'm talking about.
