    ...I assume this would be Dick "The Bruiser" Afflis' WWA promotion (with a another run at a better time slot elsewhere in the week) -- or might the AWA, WWWF or an NWA promotion have had this as a secondary house-show market slot?...<P ID="signature">______________

    So WTHR avoided "SWAT" and "Bert D'Angelo" for movies.

    I'm also surprised that WTTV picked up "SWAT".

    I've seen a few other examples where WTTV aired ABC programs not cleared by WTHR in a 1973 TV Guide I have. I assume this practice ended once WTHR and WRTV flipped affiliation.

    I recall one time during the late 80s after WTHR had picked up the NBC affiliation they refused to air a made-for-TV movie that they evidently felt was a bit too parallel to Dan Quayle's move into politics. I guess the portrayal of the politician in the movie wasn't exactly the most, shall we say ethical? (I am not exactly sure, I didn't see the movie, I just remember the controversy.) Anyway, WTTV picked up the movie.

    I also recall one summer (also in the 80s) when WTHR pre-empted the sitcom version of "Love Sidney" (based on the movie) and whatever followed it with reruns of the old Barbara Mandrell variety show. No other station picked up the NBC programming in that case.

    A few NBC affiliates refused to carry "Love Sidney", as the central character (played by Tony Randall) was originally slated to be gay. But when the series actually made it to air (based on a TV movie a couple of years earlier), Sidney's relationship was never made public, practically making the series no more controversian than any other sitcom on TV at the time.

    Here in Tampa Bay, WFLA ch.8 bumped Sidney for "M*A*S*H" reruns for a few weeks, only to clear the series a few weeks later after learning that the pre-emptions weren't necessary.

    WTTV maintained a secondary affiliation with ABC after they lost the network (as primary affiliate) to WLWI (now WTHR) when that station came on the air in 1957. IIRC, that did end when ABC moved to WRTV in '79. I didn't know they ever actually used it other than for coverage of JFK's assasination in '63.

    WTTV had been the primary ABC affiliate in Indy for about a year before losing it to WLWI. Before that, ABC had been on WISH and CBS was on WTTV.

    I recall that incident, and saw promos for the movie on WTTV. "Favorite Son" was the title.
