Where Were You in 1979?
Since 1979, Kitchen Magic has provided quality kitchen refacing and remodeling to our customers at an affordable price. You've helped us become the largest kitchen refacer in the U.S. We will celebrate its 30th anniversary in November of this year, and to celebrate, we'll look back at some of what made 1979 special.
Earlier we looked back and reminisced about the top music hits for 1979. We also had a look at the top movies of that year.
In 1979, there were just over 76 million households with televisions, but viewers were pretty much confined to the three broadcast networks, ABC, NBC, and CBS (Fox was many years in the future) or a few local channels. Just one out of every five homes had access to cable TV, and Time magazine marveled that cable viewers might be able to see as many as 36 channels on it some day.
Let's count down the thirty most popular shows in 1979. Last week we looked at shows #6 through #10. The week before that #11 through #20, and before that, #21 through #30.
Here are shows #1 through #5. How many of these do you recall? Congratulations to reader Cynthia Dennis in the Philadelphia area, who guessed the number one show for that year.
1) 60 Minutes
2) Three's Company
3) That's Incredible
