    I find it more interesting to watch my sisters inflict this upon their kids and grand kids. Being that 11/17/78 was probably a Friday night when it aired, I didn’t get to be tortured the first time around because I was at our High School football game (being in the band has its advantages at times). To age myself even further, I was a Sophomore in 1978, so watching it probably wasn’t too high on the list anyway. Oh, and to the purple and the Prince reference, there was someone else at the time who loved purple. I had to hear about it because my youngest sister had a crush on him and read about it in either Tiger Beat or one of the other rags that catered to teen girls at the time. And at the same time, he and his sister had a variety show on ABC. His name is Donny Osmond. Yes, those Osmonds from Utah, the other family competition in the ’70’s to the Jacksons.

    Also, as to Harvey Korman being on every variety show in the ’70’s, I think it was only the ones that aired on CBS since he was part of “The Carol Burnett Show” that aired on the network at the time. Also, this was a time that variety shows were starting to wane from their height in the ’60’s and this was roughly 6 years after “The Ed Sullivan Show” left the air waves. And yes, as a kid, I was forced to watch it because my parents loved the show. And to think, the following year we got the original “Battlestar Galactica” on ABC with Lorne Greene (Pa Cartwright from “Bonanza”) as Adama which, as cheesy as it was, was better than this. Then season 2 struck and ruined it.
