    Why this strange method for listings?
    Classic Television must always be preserved!

    Do you mean why it's noon one day through late afternoon the next?
    Probably because this was an afternoon newspaper. BTW, it still is,
    with a rather miniscule circulation in 2008.

    This may have been one of the earliest instances of Guiding Light
    airing on a one-day delay the next morning. (Don't forget to clip the
    dated audio-over-credits and cover the dated CTN! )
    Save AM radio...kill I-CRAP.

    It was Tom Kennedy who hosted To Say The Least and not the actor George Kennedy.

    This almost certainly had to be an afternoon paper.
    The [i]Birmingham News[i] did the same thing when
    it was an afternoon paper (it's a morning one now).

    I'm glad I never moved from another part of the country
    to Tucson; I'd have had a time figuring out when everything
    came on, with so many delays. BTW, I know that "Monday
    Night Football" aired at 7 PM (MT), but how did most Mountain
    ABC affiliates handle "The San Pedro Beach Bums"? I'm not
    sure, but I keep thinking Denver delayed it to the following Sunday.
    (In the Pacific time zone, it followed "MNF.")

    I've mentioned this before, but back around 1980 WFMY/2
    Greensboro, NC, put "Guiding Light" on a one-day delay at 9 AM.
    The station got so many complaints that "GL" soon went back to
    in-pattern at 3 PM and has stayed there ever since. Not likely
    any Southern stations (other than Orlando and Miami) will move
    the show to the morning.

    Frankly, I doubt many viewers cared... ;D

    ...ABC's Monday fare leading into MNF was often delayed by affiliates in every time zone in order to carry NFL-related local or syndicated fare. I remember WLUK/11 Green Bay bumping The Rookies to Sunday afternoons in order to show a locally-produced program originating from Packer great Fuzzy Thurston's nightclub The Left Guard...

    Especially in NFL cities. WXIA Atlanta carried
    "Falcons Replay" in 1975 on Mondays at 8:30;
    ABC let them carry "Barbary Coast" at 7:30--
    and it was not a week-behind delay! Same
    thing in New Orleans, where WVUE's "From The
    Pressbox" aired at 7:30 (CT); it, too, got the
    early feed of "Barbary Coast" at 6:30.

    As for "The San Pedro Beach Bums," no, I'm
    sure few people cared; I knew people in 1978
    who thought ABC still had "The Captain And
    Tennille" on Mondays at 8...and it had been
    canceled and replaced by "Beach Bums"! But
    I still wonder how Mountain time zone ABC affiliates
    generally handled the Monday-night show that otherwise
    would have aired at 7 PM local time (OK, use "That's
    Incredible!" or "MacGyver." Their ratings were decent.).

    Pre-feed of the show at 3 or 4am Monday morning, or late afternoon Monday
    between the DEF feed and ABC News? Anyone recall the time of the DEF--
    4:30 ET? 5:00? And was there still a 6:00 ET feed of the news then?


    I still wonder how Mountain time zone ABC affiliates generally handled the
    Monday-night show that otherwise would have aired at 7 PM local time.
    --Live feed at 6:00 as noted in the Tucson listings.
    --10:30 or later Monday night.
    --Weekend fringe time (afternoon or late night) as speculated for Denver.

    I recall that, before the time change in the fall, Phoenix and Tucson ABC
    stations ran the 8:00 EDT show after MNF (a la the left coast) as football
    began at 6 MST.
    Save AM radio...kill I-CRAP.

    My mistake - I wrote it down wrong. It was Tom Kennedy. :-[
