35 years ago today, CBS unleashed The Equalizer on the nation! Edward Woodward is the titular figure in this action drama, with Robert Lansing in support:
The series lasted 4 seasons and 88 episodes, mostly on Wednesday nights at 10:00, though it also aired Thursdays. Never a huge hit, it faced off against Hotel and St. Elsewhere its first two seasons, then got Dynasty against it on ABC. Its final season, it was moved to 9:00, where it squared off against sitcoms--The Wonder Years and Hooperman on ABC and Night Court and Baby Boom (remember that one?) on NBC.
The series has not had a high profile in reruns this millennium--or ever, that I can recall--but it is available on NBC.com (it's a Universal production ). Anyone interested in us tackling this one on the podcast someday?
