As far as soap operas, I think "When a Girl Marries" stands alone for 
broadcasting on those three networks (though the NBC Red and NBC Blue 
networks split into NBC and ABC eventually -- so it may count as only 
two networks).  It didn't run on what may have been the number one 
network for awhile - the Mutual network.  I'll have to dig out my copy 
of Higby's memoirs and see.  (Like I need an excuse to re-read TUNE IN 
TOMORROW or any of Jim Harmon's books for that matter!)

Congratulations on your extremely good taste in your knowledge of a mass 
media which somehow managed to be popular, profitable, and moral (up to 
the moment that TV and game shows hit the air).
