I was old enough to remember, but I don’t recall watching a few of the shows on Saturday, March 28, 1981 as NBC “The Peacock” televised its’ last ever NCAA Final Four games at the old Spectrum in Philadelphia.
As a bit of trivia to shock your friends, this was most of the CBS prime-time lineup on that same night as the semifinals:
8 p.m. WKRP in Cincinnati
8:30 p.m. The Tim Conway Show
9 p.m. the short-lived crime drama, Freebie and The Bean and a series that would be cancelled shortly thereafter, Secrets of Midland Heights–as evidenced in this former CBS promo:
By contrast, CBS on April 5, 2014 will have on its’ schedule:
Person of Interest, Criminal Minds, and 48 Hours.
