November was “Newvember” on ABC in 1981

When ads like this showed up in magazines like TV guide, I would grab my pen and sit down and circle all of the shows that I wanted to watch and would pay special attention to upcoming movies. Pre-cable TV and VCR that was a big deal. In this Newvember I would have watched all 4 of the ABC Sunday Night Movies, although I probably would have gotten bored with, “The Goodbye Girl” when I was a kid.

Fun little trivia — Notice that “It’s a Living” is going by its alternative names of “Making a Living” in this ad.

Do you see movies and shows that would have been “must see” for you back in 1981?
