ABC-TV Has The Potential To Save The World with "Bewitched" and "The Bionic Woman"

ABC should start a new tradition among the original three broadcast networks:


Starting in the Fall, ABC should air original episodes (in seasonal, chronolgoical order, week by the week) of their classic shows, such as Bewitched, The Bionic Woman and Love, American Style - and ABC should air them in the exact original day and time slot in which that originally aired.

And NOT TV Land. NOT TBS. NOT WGN America.

But the ORIGINAL NETWORK who aired the originl show in the first place.

Considering the increasing appeal of the retro audience, this would be a HUGE thing for the networks to do.

For example, ABC could air:

Bewitched - on Thursday, 9:00 PM.

The Bionic Woman, Wednesday, 8:00 PM.

Love, American Style, Friday, 10:00 PM.

And then have CBS and NBC follow with "reruns" of their own classic shows.

And again, not just as a one-time airing, but have the original first season of say, The Bionic Woman, run in succession, week by week - straight, in a row.

The Big Three could start out with just one show, and then do entire evenings of program (Sat, CBS: All in the Family, M*A*S*H, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show, The Carol Burnett Show).

The ratings for such "specials" would go THROUGH THE ROOF.

or as the kids say today, the ratings would be "Off the hook."

Just wanted to let you know that I like this theory. I'm someone who loves the old stuff... so I would support this all the way!!

Thank you for your comment, Kris.

I think it would be great for everyone...TV viewers (young and mature), network executives - and the Universe in general.
