(Inquisitr)   Social media resurrected Arnold Horshack just to kill him off again so the celebrity death trifecta could be completed. That's almost as sad as Season 4 of Welcome Back, Kotter, where Kotter didn't bother to show up   (inquisitr.com) divider line 57

I read the coroner's report.
He's not only merely dead, he's  really most sincerely dead.

That show is being broadcast on MeTV this summer.  I don't get how it ever made it to TV.  The "jokes" are turrible and aside from Travolta the cast is forgettable.  I remember the show as a kid but not that it was this bad.

Happy Days had the 8pm slot for the entire run of the show, so if it was on Tuesdays, it would have been at 9:00. I remember it having an 8pm time slot as the opening show of prime time so I'm guessing it was probably part of the Thursday night line-up. Part of the targeted audience were kids and 9:00 was too late because it was past most 1970's kids' bed times.

According to the TV Guide Guide to TV, WBK was on from '75-'78.  Happy Days was it's lead-in on Tuesday the first season.
In the '76-'77 season, it moved to Thursday, kicking off the prime time, followed by Barney MIller.
'77-'78, it stayed at 8:00 (7:00 Central) followed by What's Happening.
'78-'79, the final season, the Thursday slot was given to Mork And Mindy, and WBK was moved to Monday, followed by Operation Petticoat.

If I'm feeling generous, I might tell fellow farkers what was the Saturday Morning line-up the season they were born.
