Notes[edit]

♦ABC had a 6PM (ET)/5PM (CT) feed for their newscast

In Mid-1978, For Richer, For Poorer aired its final episode on NBC. After the show's end, NBC returned the 4 PM timeslot to its affiliates, making it the first network to do so. In exchange for this, NBC took back the 1 PM slot from its affiliates and it chose to place its popular game show, The Hollywood Squares in that timeslot.
