Decades’ Weekend Binges, Sep. 2019

Decades spends a weekend honoring a comedy legend and then goes off to the West.

Aug. 31-Sep. 1: Peter Gunn

Sep. 7-8: Bob / The Bob Newhart Show

Decades plays a triple-header of Bob Newhart, who turns 90 earlier in the week. On Saturday, the not-long-lived 1990s sitcom Bob airs during the day and switches to the final season of The Bob Newhart Show in the evening. On Sunday, it’s the final season of Newhart, ending with the legendary finale. In the evening, it switches back to Bob. (Sorry, no The [other] Bob Newhart Show or George & Leo.)

Scheduling Changes: 2 Sep 2019

Barnaby Jones

Sorry for this long delay. There have definitely been changes since my last update in June. So, let’s not waste time and get to the rundown.

Antenna TV

Back in July, the biggest change was Soap being bumped to weekends only. The weekend schedule in the early afternoon had some juggling, but nothing was removed or added to the network’s slate. What’s Happening!! and its follow-up series are both on weekends while Family Ties is now weekdays-only.

Decades’ Weekend Binges: July 2019

Here is what is in store for those long weekend binges during the month of July.

July 6-7: Remington Steele

Title sequence to season five of Remington Steele… earlier sequences won’t embed

July 13-14: The Love Boat

A binge that is exciting and new… and one of the older shows with all its cast still alive.

July 20-21: Matt Houston

July 27-28: The Fall Guy

I really love the title theme and sequence.

Decades’ Weekend Binges: May 2019

May is another month of full of detective drama binges on Decades.

May 4-5: The Streets of San Francisco

This binge starts at the beginning and runs through S2E16, so I expect this one return for another binge this summer.

Title sequence to season one of The Streets of San Francisco

May 11-12: The Untouchables

Like The Streets of San Francisco, this binge of The Untouchables starts at the beginning and will run through S2E18. However, it does skip two two-part episodes — “The Unhired Assassin” from season one and “The Big Train” from season two.

May 18-19: Vega$ The Mod Squad

In honor of Peggy Lipton, Decades scratches the planned Vega$ binge for ’60 drama The Mod Squad. These episodes aren’t any block of episodes in chronological order. Rather, they appear to be episodes that best highlight Lipton, who played flower child Julie Barnes in the crime drama.

May 25-26: The Doris Day Show

The binge covers a majority of the series, starting at the beginning and ending a few episodes into the fourth season.
