But the NBC shows I did watch every week on a school night was

Cosby show
A Different World
I hung out with friends at times, but I remember watching the line up back in the day: Facts of Life, 227, Golden Girls, Amen, Hunter.

Don't forget the Gospel Music Channel (GMC) it airs 11pm E/T Weeknights and Amen at Midnight. The only thing with GMC is that they cut up scenes for "family viewing" purposes. Amen is really chopped up.

Really? I don't get GMC, what is it in 227 or Amen that they would cut out?

That was a great lineup. I can't believe the networks have just given up on Saturday anymore.

That's when people stayed home on Saturday nights. Growing up, my Saturdays were watching NWA wrestling on TBS at 605pm-805pm, Then I'd watch the NBC prime-time line up, at 11:30pm Saturday Night Live, and occasionally, WWF Saturday Night night's main event!

Growing up in the mid to late 80s were the joint! lol

Dialogue or scenes that may seem too risque for church/spiritual purposes. As a strong christian, I undertand where they are coming from but it trips me up when I'm expecting a scene and its been cut.

There was an episode of "Amen" from season four where the Rev's ex-fiancee attempts to seduce him in his apartment. The part where she throws her clothes out the window is cut and much of the scene is cut is when she is being suggestive. That episode ends earlier than usual due to severe edits. The closing credits are also rushed.

Arnetia Walker who played the actress also appeared in 227 a few months later. When she is trying to seduce Lester, she gives him a picture of her in a bikini "for his fantasy". That tag was cut.

In the ep where Ernest is a judge, the convict's girlfriend go to the house and holds him up with a gun. That scene is cut. She enters the home and GMC version fades to black with no shot of her pulling out the gun. Rolly and Ernest's reference to caling the convict's girlfriend "butt ugly" is also cut out. The gun really isn't seen until the end of the scene.

Any swear words that are used are muted or the dialogue is just cut. When Sandra was trying to get a part in the movie that was shooting in the neighbor hoood, her "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a d**n", that was removed. It disrupts the flow of the dialogue/scenes that one may be familiar with however, I understand why they do it.

So, there you have it. 227 isn't as bad but Amen's edits/cuts are REALLY messed up.

OMG! YES, DUDE! They go to commercial as she starts to unbutton the top of her dress. Then the scene fades into Thelma seeing Inga and Ernest in bed together. I'm glad you brought that up.

I remember it, too. It offended me for some reason. LOL.

Anyways, the GMC cuts cut to commerical at the most awkard times. I hate that. That's why I use TV ONE instead even though GMC's eps are crisper in quality.

TV One is better. Trust. If you see GMC, you'll know what I'm talking about.
