    CBS (ended 1983)
    Archie Bunker's Place premiered in 1979 as a continuation of the very popular CBS series All in the Family. When the new series began, the focus of the series shifted from Archie and Edith's home life to Archie's bar, Archie's Place, which was now being expanded into a short-order restaurant. Some new regulars were introduced into the series such as Archie's new business partner, Murray Klein, cook Veronica Rooney, and some of Archie's friends, who were formerly recurring guest stars were now regulars or even costars. Edith was seen less frequently in the first season. Then at the beginning of the second season, the unthinkable happened. Edith suddenly died of a stroke, leaving Archie to care for little Stephanie all by himself. Archie later became full owner of the bar and grill with financial advice coming from lawyer/business manager Gary Rabinowitz, who happened to be in love with Archie's niece Billie, who had also come to stay with Archie. Archie Bunker's Place left CBS in 1983.

    Double Dare

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1977)
    It's hard to believe that the game show title Double Dare was first used not on Nickelodeon, but by Mark Goodson for a short-lived adult game show on CBS.

    Two contestants competed (each in isolation booths). Clues were read (up to 10 clues) and the first person to buzz in (which caused the opponents booth to shut down and close the view) with the correct answer to the subject, wins $50. If the player buzzed in and was wrong, that player's booth would be closed and the opponent got a penalty clue and a free guess. If the player guessed wrong, play resumed with the opponent never seeing that previous clue (unless the opponent guessed it right and would become the "DARE" clue as well). Then that contestant could "DARE" the opponent to guess the subject on the next clue. The booth was then opened and the contestant had 5 seconds to study the clue before being asked for a guess. A correct guess paid $50 while an incorrect guess paid $100 to the player who dared him/her. Then the contestant could "DOUBLE DARE" the opponent for $200 (or $100 for the opponent), but if the contestant doesn't want to Dare or Double Dare (or if all 10 clues were used), play moved on with a new subject.

    The first player to reach $500 won the game, got out of the isolation booth to face...

    THE SPOILERS

    In this bonus round, the contestant faced three PhDs (each in an isolation booth). The subject was shown only to the contestant. There were 8 numbered clues, the contestant could decide to pass or use that clue. Up to four passes were allowed. If the clue was used, each Spoiler in turn, tried to guess what the subject was (the other Spoilers' booths are turned off while each one answers). Every time a Spoiler guessed incorrectly, the contestant won $100. If the Spoiler guesses correctly, that Spoiler won $100 and would be out of the round.

    The contestant had to give four clues to the Spoilers. If all 3 Spoilers guessed the subject, the round ends, but the contestant kept all winnings to that point. If at least one Spoiler fails to guess correctly after being given the fourth clue, the contestant won $5,000.

    Champions stayed on until defeated or have reached the $20,000 limit (though CBS shows had $25,000 ceilings, this show followed ABC's winning limits). This was done by a contestant named Alan Lusher. He won 8 games & $20,500 total (the Ken Jennings of Double Dare). Then you have Ray Winston, another Double Dare champ that won over $7,000, but he never beaten the Spoilers. He suffered the Agony of Defeat everytime.

    Does the theme song sound familiar? It would be heard a year later on another Goodson-Todman game on another network (NBC), Card Sharks. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ THE BROADCAST HISTORY of DOUBLE DARE: December 13, 1976-March 4, 1977 at 11:00-11:30am on CBS-TV March 7-April 29, 1977 at 10:00-10:30am on CBS-TV.moreless

    There were many incarnations of Sabrina, most were merely reruns of 28 half-hour segments, sharing slots with the Groovy Goolies, and the Archies, but he third season showed new episodes. Sabrina's legacy lived on after the 1970's, as the repulsive Rotunda Repulsa, a troll with a power hunger, turned Sabrina into an adolescent. That started the 1999 revival series, which was 'supposedly' spun off the live-action show, whilst it was actually supposed to be started a few years after cancellation of the orginal Sabrina cartoon. Lucky for us, it did not. The live-action show made it popular, and the show that originally was not, came to be better than it was originally planned. The further adventures of Sabrina appear in Sabrina comic books, published by Archie Comics, which is where this whole "chaos" began!moreless

    CBS (ended 1982)
    The Filmation studio produced this low-budget update on Terrytoons' two biggest cartoon stars, Mighty Mouse and Heckle and Jeckle. The Mighty Mouse episodes were atypical, except the violence inherent in the original theatrical cartoons was absent. Heckle & Jeckle cartoons here were pretty non-descript. There were two Mighty Mouse cartoons and two Heckle and Jeckle cartoons. Added to the mix were "Quacula," a vampire duck (pre-dating Cosgrove-Hall's "Count Duckula" by two years, first appearing on Danger Mouse), and "The Great Space Chase," a 16-part serial which was essentially a Star Wars/Flash Gordon spoof. Special features included "Mighty Mouse Environmental Bulletins" and "Homonyms" with Heckle and Jeckle dabbling in sound-alike wordplay. Some of the folks who would work on Ralph Bakshi's Mighty Mouse show in 1987 worked on this series (Kent Butterworth, John Kricfalusi), and they could readily attest that it wasn't fun working on this show under Filmation's standards. Some of the budget restrictions could be attributed to the fact that on many shows, the registration pegs on the bottom of the cels were cut off and taped to the top. Most of the production money went to Scotch tape!moreless

    Ark II

    Follow
    CBS (ended 1977)
    Made in the 1970s when ecology was ascendant, Ark II posited a world where mankind's environmental carelessness had caused the collapse of civilization by the 25th century. A few scientists remained, though, and they've created the Ark to be the envoy of science and progress to scattered communities that have regressed to primitive agrarian conditions. It cruised a desolate, desert-like wasteland, where pockets of humanity survived in isolated oases. Manning the Ark was a crew of four. Jonah was the captain of the Ark and normally the driver. Young scientists Ruth and Samuel provided support. Finally, there was Adam, a talking chimpanzee with intelligence on a par with some humans. Aside from a utility laser, the Ark crew, as part of their pacifist beliefs, carried no weapons. As a last resort, they carried blinding dazzler devices to temporarily disable attackers. The crew never used violence, not even striking others. A long vehicle the size of a tractor-trailer, the Ark was packed with scientific equipment. A second, smaller vehicle, the Roamer, was used for side missions. The Ark also carried the Jet Jumper, a jetpack that Jonah would use for aerial scouting. Whenever they had to leave the Ark unattended, a forcefield could be used to secure the vehicle from intruders. Like many other children's shows of the era, Ark II always left its young viewers with a clear moral at the end of each episode. It was produced by Filmation, one of the leaders of Saturday morning children's programming in the 1970s. Opening narration: For millions of years the Earth was fertile and rich. Then pollution and waste began to take their toll. Civilization fell into ruin. This is the world of the 25th Century. Only a handful of scientists remain. Men, who have vowed to rebuild what has been destroyed... This is their achievement: Ark II, a mobile storehouse of scientific knowledge, manned by a highly-trained crew of young people. Their mission: to bring the hope of a new future to mankind. Ark II log, entry #1: I, Jonah, Ruth, Samuel and Adam are fully aware of the dangers we face as we venture into unknown, maybe even hostile areas. But, we're determined to bring the promise of a new civilization to our people and our planet.moreless

    CBS (ended 1980)
    Camera Three started out as an obscure program that was seen locally in New York before going national on January 22, 1956. It was a daring program with a cultural flavor displaying the arts in all forms from plays to poetry, to music and faith. Airing on CBS Sunday mornings at 11:30 and other places even earlier it was a daring concept hosted by James Macandrew a type of experimentation taking people into different worlds and lifestyles and lasting 24 years on television. Camera Three was an expression of that small and goodly company of directors, producers, writers, technicians, actors and musicians who pump fresh blood into the channels of television. Without them the industry's creativity would soon disappear. Starting out as local New York City program, Camera Three premiered on Saturday, May 16th, 1953 as a co-production between WCBS-TV and the State Education Department of the University of the State of New York, with James Macandrew as the Host and Moderator. The program ran from 2-2:45PM and it's panel of experts covered all manner of topics, from Shakespeare to economics and everything in between. In April of 1954 it won a Peabody Award in the Television Education category, shared with with station KNXT in Los Angeles for its Cavalcade of Books series. The series dramatized classic works of literature, including Herman Melville's "Moby Dick", Edgar Allen Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart", and over the course of eight weeks in November and December of 1955, Dostoevsky's "Crime and Punishment". In September of 1978, the network announced that it was cancelling Camera Three, alongside Lamp Unto My Feet and Look Up and Live, to make room for a ninety-minute news show called "Sunday Morning". It was last shown on Sunday, January 21st, 1979. In July of 1979, however, it was announced that PBS, through Boston's WGBH station, would revive Camera Three. It premiered at 9:30PM on Thursday, October 4th, 1979, although individual PBS affiliates presumably could air it other times as well. From October of 1979 to July of 1980, PBS aired 40 episodes of Camera Three, 24 repeats and 16 new episodes. Most sources give July 10th, 1980 as the last broadcast but it was still being shown in early 1983.moreless

    The New Perry Mason was a one-season series that was an unsuccessful attempt to revive the highly popular original PerryMason TV show that ran from 1957 to 1966, by CBS, the network that had aired the original series. The new series followed the format of the Erle Stanley Gardner novels and the original series. Mason takes on the case of a client accused of murder. The first half of the episode establishes the crime, the defendant, and Mason's initial investigation into the case. The second half goes to the trial, where things often look helpless until Mason ferrets out the true killer, clearing his client. Although several crew from the original series were involved on the production side, all of the on-camera roles were recast with Monte Markham taking over for Raymond Burr in the title role; Sharon Acker taking over for Barbara Hale in the role of Mason's loyal secretary Della Street; Albert Stratton playing private detective Paul Drake originally played by the then late William Hopper; Harry Guardino filling the part played by the late William Talman as Hamilton Burger, the hapless district attorney who inevitably lost against Mason; and Dane Clark in the roll made famous by the late Ray Collins as Lt. Arthur Tragg, the police detective who Maon would often run up against. The iconic "Park Avenue Beat" theme by Fred Steiner was replaced with generic dramatic music by Earle H. Hagen. The revival was cancelled mid-season after it failed to compete with ratings power-houses The FBI on ABC and The Wonderful World Of Disney on ABC.moreless

    Archie's Funhouse was a Saturday morning cartoon show that aired on CBS from 1970 to 1971 and from 1972 to 1973. The show was the sequel to the previous season's one-hour Archie Saturday morning series "The Archie Comedy Hour" (which was one of the biggest hits for the 1969-1970 Saturday morning season). "Archie's Funhouse", of course, featured Archie and his pals (Jughead, Reggie, Veronica, Betty, Hot Dog and others) as on-stage hosts of skits, jokes, and music. The program also had live-action kids as the audience for the show, responding to the antics of the Archie gang. Actually, the concept from the show came from 2 segments that were first shown on the previous season's "The Archie Comedy Hour". They were the "Funhouse" and "Side Show" segments. On "Archie's Funhouse", these segments featured puns, jokes, and skits. For these segments, Filmation Studios hired writers from the hit NBC primetime show "Rowan And Martin's Laugh-In" (the show that inspired these segments) to write for these segments. In addition, the show also featured "The Giant Jukebox", playing hit songs from The Archies. There were 3 song segments per show with on-stage performances by The Archies. Hit songs included "Sunshine", "Love Vibrations", and "Comes The Sun". "Archie's Funhouse" started off as a one-hour show on Saturday mornings from 1970 to 1971, then it was trimmed to a half-hour shown on Sunday mornings from 1972 to 1973.moreless

    CBS (ended 1974)
    The New Dick Van Dyke Show was Dick Van Dyke's return to television after pursuing movie roles, following the highly sucessful run of the Dick Van Dyke Show.

    In this incarnation he was Dick Preston, a talk show host and later a soap-opera actor. The show focused on his work and his home life with wife Jenny (Hope Lange) and daughter Annie (Angela Powell). The show ran on CBS from 1971 to 1974.

    For the first two seasons, the Prestons lived in Arizona. Dick hosted a local talk/variety show called "The Dick Preston Show." His sister/secretary was "Mike" Preston, and he and Jenny's best friends were Bernie Davis and his wife Carol. Dick's boss was Ted Atwater, a money-greedy type of man.

    For the last season, Dick, Jenny, and Annie left Arizona (after Dick's talk show was cancelled) for Hollywood, where Dick got an acting job on the soap opera "Those Who Care." New characters were Richard and Connie Richardson. Sadly, when the first format was just kicking up, the second format came in and caused the ratings to decline. The second format was made because of the fact that Carl Reiner left the show after 1973 because of a censorship dispute. Famously, the show had filmed an episode where the Powell's daughter walked in at a delicate time. Nothing shocking was shown on-screen, but the network demanded the whole episode be cut and reworked. Carl claimed censorship and walked away from the whole show.
