Top Ten #100: Special, uh, 100th edition edition!

1) Christmas specials: I know I watched my share this season (Hello, 1984's A Christmas Wish with Mr. T and Emmanuel Lewis), but it seems like there is never enough time to see as many as I want!

2) John Amos: Happy birthday to Genius Award winner John Amos!

3) Alan Thicke:  Guess what beloved clip was mentioned on this week's Christmas episode of Gilbert and Frank's Amazing Colossal Podcast?

4) Knots Landing: The long-running nighttime soap prremiered this day in 1979 on CBS!

5) A Chipmunk Christmas: The more I watch this, the more impressed I am by it. It's one of the more underrated 1980s animated specials.

6) The Kennedy Center Honors: On this day 40 years ago, the third annual event celebrated Jimmy Cagney and Leonard Bernstein (neither of whom had a sitcom, unfortunately).

7) Wonder Woman: The one true WW, Lynda Carter, appeared on HBO Max as the service added the complete series just before Christmas!

8) The Jim Nabors Show: One of the more surprising additions to the streaming service is Prime Video adding the 1978 daytime program to its offerings. Take THAT, Soul and Wonder Woman 84!

9) K.T, Oslin: R.I.P. to the 80s country music star. Here's a nice piece of decade nostalgiaL Remember the USA Today TV show?

10) Our listeners (and readers):  Thanks to all of you for your continued support of the show and for reading the website! We have been here 100 weeks with the Top Ten, and we will continue for another billion more starting in 2021! Thanks again!
