In 1982, The TV comedies “Bosom Buddies” and “Mork and Mindy” last aired on ABC. After that, along with Barney Millerʹs voluntary departure, ABCʹs Thursday night lineup no longer was declared must-see-TV night according to David Tanny, so this watcher, along with the other ABC Thursday night castoff “Taxi”, switched to NBC Thursdays that fall in time for the debut of the long-running “Cheers” in September, and the rest is history. ABC, with all the massive cancellations of D.T.'s favorite shows in the past three years, would suffer for several years with the distinction of being the least-watched network for half a decade, a shadow of its former self in the glory days of ABC in the late 1970's.

In 1994, The Fox Network becomes “a real boy” for many, airing its first ever pro football game, an exhibition lelecast of San Francisco vs Denver. Now when will the WB and UPN netlets ever become real networks? Any ideas? (creating a second class league such as the late lamented XFL doesnʹt count)
