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). *jeep! --Chet "Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible." ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// /// ZION LIST CHARTER: Please read it at /// /// http://www.zionsbest.com/charter.html /// ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// ==^================================================================ This email was sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org EASY UNSUBSCRIBE click here: http://topica.com/u/?aaP9AU.bWix1n.YXJjaGl2 Or send an email to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] T O P I C A -- Register now to manage your mail! http://www.topica.com/partner/tag02/register ==^================================================================
