    Denver bailed out of Hawaii Five-O in it's last season (the one with nobody left except Jack Lord, not even Dan-O).

    That Cleveland station, WJW, and Atlanta's WAGA were both owned by Storer at the time; WAGA did the exact same thing, handing off "Medical Center" to WATL/36, delaying "Hawaii Five-O" to Saturdays at 5, and running movies on Wednesday nights.
    Does anyone know if WJBK Detroit (sister station to both) also did this?

    It looks like they started out showing them in the Fall of 1969, then switched to the movie at midseason. However, they returned to showing the programs when the 1970-71 season began.
