This Day in TV History: Vega$ premieres on ABC

April 25, 1978 was the first appearance of Vega$ on ABC.  Do you think TV Guide hated the stylized spelling of the title with the dollar sign?

Robert Urich was private investigator Dan Tana on the series, which lasted 3 seasons and was of course shot in...Atlantic City. No, it was Las Vegas.  Greg Morris, Bart Braverman, and Judy Landers co-starred. The series was a top 25 hit when it debuted but then declined, perhaps because its lead-in Charlie's Angels fell out of the top 10.

Would anyone like to see us go back to ABC/Aaron Spelling escapism and explore the world of Vega$ on the podcast?
