This week is the first official week of autumn for 2014, as well as the first official week of the fall broadcast network TV season. With that in mind, let's look at some debuting series--but I don't mean brand new series, I mean the debut of series from the early 80s, particularly that on ABC.
ABC really went all out with their promos and imaging during this era, as the following promos will attest. Evening gowns! Stage lights! Helicopters! You name it, ABC put it to use in announcing their series. So if you ever wanted to see Danny Thomas in a white tuxedo dancing half-heartedly, today is your lucky day. Here are promos for ABC's debuting series from the 1980, 1981, and 1982 fall seasons. Enjoy!
