In the time capsule today…
We find cantankerous ABC news anchor Frank Reynolds being replaced on the evening news. He was told in advance, and he did not go quietly.
We find a new comedy on ABC about two divorcees living together. Tony Randall and Jack Klugman star in "The Odd Couple." The show was never a ratings success, but ABC continually renewed the show because audience numbers were high during summer reruns.
And we find a song on the radio by The Jackson 5. The track was the group’s third consecutive #1 hit, following "I Want You Back" and "ABC." Eleven year-old Michael Jackson takes the lead vocals in “The Love You Save.”
