And that's the way it was 1983...
    #11178473 - 10/04/09 02:59 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

NBC News Overnight with Linda Ellerbee and Bill Schechner. This might bring back memories for anyone who had a cocaine problem back in the '80s and was up late a lot (which was actually a lot of people)...



Interesting stories: Unemployment back down to 8.4% from 10.3%; Dog owners in Peking, China, were given a 3 week extension before having to kill their dogs; a convicted child molester was sentenced to watch an off-Broadway play (I'm not making this up); and Cambodia gets television back for the first time in 9 years which was back when the Khmer Rouge abolished it.

The only real difference between news then, and news now, was that people didn't SHOUT AS MUCH back then...

Like you said, you *barely* remember the 90s. If you think all 90s music sounds the same then you are sorely mistaken.

Yes, it was a good show. Ahead of its time. Linda Ellerbee used to always sign-off with "And so it goes," as a nod to Kurt Vonnegut.

Quote:

From Wikipedia:
Critical Response

NBC News Overnight was widely regarded as one of the smartest television news shows. Appealing to an eclectic audience of college students, nursing mothers, and late shift workers, the show broke the conventional "lowest common denominator" style of most news programs and injected humor into an otherwise boring medium, while providing news analysis usually unseen on other major-network newscasts. TIME named it one of the best programs of 1982, calling it "TV's wittiest, toughest, least snazzy news strip", and, after the program left the air, one of the best programs of 1983. The duPont Columbia Awards awards jury cited NBC News Overnight as "possibly the best written and most intelligent news program ever."




Of course, like anything good on television, it was canceled...

I was born on 8/3/1983.

Therefore adding one more awesome thing to the list of 1983 events.

Would've been on the news, if there was any justice in the world.

After one comes, through contact with it's administrators, no longer to cherish greatly the law as a remedy in abuses, then the bottle becomes a sovereign means of direct action.  If you cannot throw it at least you can always drink out of it.  - Ernest Hemingway

If it is life that you feel you are missing I can tell you where to find it.  In the law courts, in business, in government.  There is nothing occurring in the streets. Nothing but a dumbshow composed of the helpless and the impotent.    -Cormac MacCarthy

He who learns must suffer. And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart, and in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.  - Aeschylus
