Network Promo: Coming Friday, June 11

The oldest show this blog has done so far, and one that’s finally coming out on DVD later this year.  It’s an adaptation of a long running franchise that has had book, movie, radio, and television versions, and this was one of the best.  See if you can deduce the show from these five article quotes:

In one hour, Guy Lombardo and his Royal Canadians big band will play “Auld Lang Syne”…

…and the fun is seeing how our hero will be able to prove their guilt.

In fact, sometimes the writers almost outsmarted themselves.

“Part of our psychology was to reward the focused viewers because they might then be motivated to return the following week.”

Top shows at the time included Happy Days and Laverne and Shirley, a far cry from the complicated and involved plots…

Come back Friday 8/7 Central to find out what show is being remembered this week.  I know what show it is… do you?
