Though it had begun in and was scheduled on Tuesday, the CBS newsmagazine had been scheduled on Sunday evenings since the season, and had been held back until after football season due to the risk of pre-emptions; it was this year that the show finally began its season in the fall.

As the number of original installments decreased every year, so, too, did the ratings. In , NBC which, as a network, was also in the midst of a very public, humiliating decline threatened Disney with cancellation unless the ratings improved. That fall, Walt Disney Productions rechristened the anthology series Disney's Wonderful World and commissioned a new, original theme song by John Debney and John Klawitter, new opening and closing credits, and a new announcer, Gary Owens longtime announcer Dick Wesson committed suicide in January of that year.

In a flashback to the original themed format, many episodes initially were divided into one of four categories: In spite of this, the face-lift helped the ratings, so the show was renewed for the season.

But the next season saw only 10 installments that had not been aired on the anthology series before, and pre-emptions were far more frequent. Ratings for the show's 27th season did not improve, and in on December 30, NBC announced that it would not be renewing the series for next season.

All was not lost that year, as the show was then immediately picked up by CBS. It was moved from its longtime Sunday night slot to Saturday night at 8 PM, as the network would not displace its highly-rated pride and joy 60 Minutes.

Retitled Walt Disney, the show promised to present more original programming than it had in its final years on NBC. On September 26, , after a huge advertising campaign by the network, the series premiered on CBS. Ratings improved against mediocre competition, and the show was renewed for another season its 29th on network television. A few of these shows were pilots for series that were never picked up. The second CBS year saw an increase in the number of reruns as opposed to last year's increase in new episodes , and the ratings dropped.

Disney did, however, produce several midseason replacement series for CBS, but all of them failed. Thus, in the eyes of CBS, the anthology series had outlived its purpose and was canceled. There were occasional network and syndicated specials, but all of Disney's television resources were concentrated on the cable service.

He had some success, as the Emmy-winning, Touchstone-produced sitcom The Golden Girls and the Saturday morning cartoon a medium with which Walt Disney himself had refused to get involved due to fears of compromised quality Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears both premiered on NBC on Saturday, September 14, and lasted several years. However, these particular shows were the exception, not the rule; a number of series that the new regime eventually launched failed Wildside and The Ellen Burstyn Show, for instance.

Also, of course, did the company plan to revive the anthology series. Now known as The Disney Sunday Movie, it made its much-hyped return to network television on February 2, after a hiatus of 2 years, 4 months, and eight days, replacing the dismally-rated Ripley's Believe it or Not.

Just as Walt Disney had hosted the original until his death, Michael Eisner appeared in an introductory segment at the beginning of each episode. Nostalgia and ratings were high initially, but both eventually wore off. The show premiered at a two-hour length, but in the fall of , once again being soundly beaten in the ratings regularly by 60 Minutes in its first hour, and by Murder, She Wrote in its second, it was shortened to one hour for its third and final season on ABC.

NBC, which had not been able to launch a hit show in Disney's old time slot in the seven years since the show was axed by that network, picked up the show, which was renamed The Magical World of Disney. At first, a rotating "wheel" format was used, utilizing three different genres; every fourth week would be a special. This lasted until a few months into the following season. Eisner continued to host the show, but ratings on NBC were no better than they had been on ABC, and it limped through a two-year run here before the network pulled the plug for good.

After 36 years save for the September January hiatus , one of television's last remaining institutions from its golden age came to an unceremonious end. Ratings to date have been middling. Though the show is not currently repeated anywhere The Disney Channel dropped it and all vintage Disney programming in September of , episodes are slowly being released on DVD in the United States, and its legacy of quality television entertainment for all members of the family lives on in the hearts and minds of many.

Here is a chronology of titles used for the series: October 27, September 3, Walt Disney Presents: September 14, September 2, Disney's Wonderful World: September 9, September 13, Walt Disney: October 9, September 9, The final name was used as an umbrella title for Disney movie airings on cable's The Disney Channel from September 23, to August 25, ABC Broadcast History October 27, September 3, September 24, August 31, September 26, January 1, February 2, September 6, October 9, July 2, October 27, Last Telecast: September 9, Episodes: It began as a weekly series on CBS in , but the network canceled it in as part of an attempt to cleanse its schedule of rural-flavored shows other casualties included The Beverly Hillbillies and Green Acres.

While much of the shows humor came from its comedy skits and rural jokes, the meat of the show was its country music. Two or three stars — including current superstars and up-and-coming acts, as well as bluegrass and country gospel singers — guested each week. Sometimes, they also participated in the fun. And what do we mean by "fun? On occasion, serious music segments were featured, such as a singer-songwriter segment which featured an artist singing one of his biggest hits and then performing a song he wrote that became a hit for someone else.

But not all the guests on the show were from country music. Frequently, there were singers from other genres who became popular with country audiences, plus actors and comedians appeared as well. One of the most memorable segments aired in early , when Elvis Presley's father, Vernon Presley, delivered a tribute to his then-recently deceased son.

Emotional tributes have also been offered for cast members who had passed away during the series' run. For the season, the gang left Kornfield Kounty and headed to the city, adopting an urban theme — which included a mall and nightclub — and inviting more pop-oriented country performers in an attempt to draw a younger, more urban audience.

The move was none too popular to put it mildly with the show's longtime viewers, who saw it as abandoning the traditional country focus that had made the show popular for so long. The revamped format lasted one season. During the season, Clark hosted a series which featured clips from classic Hee Haw shows, along with new footage.

The show was titled Hee Haw Silver. Hee Haw reruns currently air at 8pm Sunday nights, with an encore at 6: Days of our Lives.

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the Days of our Lives It first premiered as a half-hour drama in and expanded to an hour ten years later. Today, it remains a consistent favorite among viewers of daytime television serials. It is the powerhouse of NBC's soap opera lineup and demonstrates its staying power in television history. The show's success derives from its consistent commitment to excellence in writing and storytelling, supported by an ensemble of performers, and an uncanny knack for anticipating viewer interests.

From demonic possessions and baby switches to exciting teen stories and love triangles, Days of our Lives remains a perennial favorite among viewers of all ages. The core families are the Hortons and the Bradys, and the multi-layered storylines involve elements of romance, adventure, mystery, comedy and drama. Original cast member Frances Reid continues to star as Alice Horton. Days of our Lives is produced by Corday Productions Inc. Executive producer, Ken Corday, is following in the tradition of his parents, Betty and Ted Corday, who co-created Days of our Lives and helmed the series for many years.

The Tomorrow Show Tomorrow aired Mondays through Thursdays or, to be more exact, early morning Tuesdays through Fridays. Attention must also be given to the supporting cast. The fact that Olivia Coleman was very pregnant while shooting made the obsession that her character, agent Angela Burr, had with taking down Roper much more real and dangerous. Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby Stars: In its relationship to our own age of authoritarianism, the series offers a kind of storytelling that seems essential: It manages to paint a portrait of a divided universe without vilifying one group and raising the other to god-like status, as evidenced by the complexities of hardboiled detective Joe Miller Thomas Jane or U.

The Expanse shows us a possible future, a future in which women can be leaders without the bat of an eye, in which racially diverse groups can unite in common cause, but it is also a warning about keeping institutions in check, about recognizing inequality wherever it might exist, in order to avoid past mistakes. Show with Bob and David Creators: Bob Odenkirk , David Cross Stars: Bob Odenkirk , David Cross Network: Before alternative comedy was a recognized thing, there was Mr.

Each episode was loosely based around a central theme and laboriously structured, with sketches leading directly into each other, and sometimes even wrapping around each other like Russian nesting dolls of comedy. Although celebrated for its absurd point of view, Mr. Not every bit landed, but the show still had a shockingly high batting average over its four seasons, and very little of it feels dated today. Easily dismissed as just a Sopranos clone set in the s, Boardwalk Empire wisely took many of the best elements of its predecessor and expanded its scope.

And it only improved over time as it became less concerned with the minutiae of New Jersey politics in favor of featuring a much more compelling national landscape. As a result, both its characters and its stories became grander, more operatic and expressionistic. By its third season, Boardwalk Empire found its voice, finally living up to the promise of its Scorsese-directed premiere. In Sneaky Pete , Giovanni Ribisi plays Marius, a conman who, in a moment of tragicomic brilliance, fakes a bank robbery albeit with a real gun and by scaring the bank customers in order to avoid being killed by his pursuers.

But Murphy understood teens. Glee spoke to the football jock and popular girl who always felt like they were pretending. But you definitely had a teacher who terrorized students the way she did. And if you were lucky you had a teacher who believed in you the way Mr. Schuester Matthew Morrison believed in his students.

Glenn Kessler, Todd A. Kessler, and Daniel Zelman Stars: Just when you thought Patty was pure evil, she would reveal her more vulnerable side. The first season follows the class action case against Arthur Frobisher Ted Danson , who has bilked his employees out of their life savings. But Damages pioneered this narrative device, simultaneously confusing viewers and allowing them to put together the puzzle.

For its final two seasons, the series moved to DirecTV, but now you can binge all five seasons on Netflix. Just stay away from Statue of Liberty bookends.
