    I can check our downtown library. They have--or had--bunches of TV Guide back issues. I'll check to see if they have 'em.

    Today Atlanta is a top 10 market. But even in 1969, it was the biggest city in the South with such poor TV choices. It had three network VHF stations, a VHF NET affiliate and two UHF independent stations. 36 only signs on at 11am and it takes till 12:30pm for 17 to start its day.

    None of the big stations stay on all night. WSB-TV 2, perhaps the leading TV station in the South, simply runs Carson at 11:30 and signs off when his show ends. And the other stations either run a movie or Merv Griffin or Joey Bishop and then it's lights out. By this time in NYC and LA, at least one station was staying on all night and others were staying on till 2 or 3am.

    Of course, when Ted Turner got control of Channel 17, he turned into a 24 hour superstation, as WTBS, in the very early days of cable TV. But I'd guess that would take another ten years.

    I also notice the ABC affiliate in Chattanooga doesn't take ABC's early evening line up. They run their own movie at 7:30, then they run The Guns of Will Sonnett with Walter Brennan an hour late, then they join ABC at 10pm for Dick Cavett. (I didn't remember Cavett had a prime time hour, unless this was a special.)

    Nope, Dick Cavett's show was a weekly variety show. It also aired Friday at 10; Sept. 19 was its finale.

    Atlanta, by the way, is the #8 television market.

    ...Cavett's ABC prime time run was actually three nights a week at 10:00 E/P, Monday-Tuesday-Thursday IIRC, and it was a trial run of his talk show. The Cavett prime time variety show was a limited-run hour on CBS in August and September 1975, the talk show having been cancelled by ABC that January...

    During the final week on ABC, Cavett's show aired Monday, Tuesday and Friday night. ABC ran a movie that Wednesday and It Takes A Thief Thursday. And the synopsis showed it was a chat show, yet the little genre notation after the show name reads "variety." Odd.

    Actually, Ch. 9 did carry ABC News at 6 at that time; they did so, in fact, until September 1972, when its local "Eyewitness News" moved from 5:30 to 6, with Smith and Reasoner moving to 6:30. Why that wasn't indicated in those TV Guide listings I don't know. Ch. 11 didn't pick up ABC News until Dec. 20, 1971, airing it at 6 until September 1972, when "Pro News" took over the 6 PM slot and Smith and Reasoner moved to 6:30.

    ^ Correct on channel 9 carrying ABC News at 6. I missed the Smith/Reynolds notation as the listing simply read "News."
