Anniversary:

Cheers celebrated ten years on NBC.

Nashville Now celebrated ten years on The Nashville Network.

20/20 celebrated fifteen years on ABC.

Biggest New Hit: Home Improvement was #4 on ABC Tuesdays; it tied with Cheers. Tim’s solution to everything and to make things much better was “More Power!” Of course, it always blow up in his face. His family loves him thou. It was a great family series.

British Ties: CBS aired the BBC series, Smith & Jones, late at night.

Death: Redd Foxx suffered a heart attack on the set of The Royal Family. He later died on October 11, 1991. He finally joined Elizabeth in heaven. Boy, the big one really came to him! 

First Run:

NBC shot themselves in the foot again, Baywatch returned to syndication. It became the most popular show in the world. Baywatch lasted on NBC for one season, 1989/90.

WKRP In Cincinnati returned to syndication after a nine year absence with three original cast members, Gordon Jump, Richard Sanders and Frank Bonner. It was previously on CBS from 1978-82.

New Night: FOX added Wednesday nights to the schedule on July 8, 1992 with Beverly Hills 90210 and the 90210 spin off, Melrose Place.

The Return:

All the troubles that JR gave Bobby in Dallas for ten years, Patrick Duffy deserves some laughs on Step By Step, with Suzanne Somers, as his wife.

Tidbits:

Silk Stalkings ran concurrently on USA Network and CBS, both jointly produced the series.

Fifteen was Nickelodeon's first teen soap.

Hot Country Nights premiered on my birthday.

My baby sister and me got something else in common. We both have successful series that premiered on our birthdays. Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman started on January 1, 1993. Happy New Year! For me, it was Simon & Simon.

After two months Charlie Hoover was cancelled, a drunk driver killed Sam Kinison on April 10, 1991. Five days earlier, Sam married his girlfriend, Malika Kinison.

Strange Indeed! For starters, I have nothing against Dana Delany. Come on! She didn't deserve to win a best actress Emmy on August 30, 1992. Hello! China Beach ended in July 1991 and the fall season started in September 1991. She wasn't eligible to be nominated for an Emmy of the 1991/92 season. China Beach wasn't on that season! Dear lord! The other actresses were robbed of the Emmy. Hey, Dana, please return the Emmy to the rightful owner! Peace out.
