This, apparently, is “end of the icon” week in America. Tonight, ER, which debuted — Mrs. News Cut reminded me today — when our oldest son was in 2nd grade (he’s almost 23, now), has its final showing, ending — officially — the NBC dominated time period on Thursday night that started with Hill Street Blues, then L.A. Law, and then ER.
And it’s been announced that “The Guiding LIght,” will end in September.
The soap opera is disappearing almost as fast as the soap that spawned it.
Trivia question: What was in NBC’s 9 p.m. (CT) time slot before Hill St. Blues launched the “Must See TV” tradition on the network? (No peeking or Googling)
