Promo Theatre: A night of fun on NBC

 I knew I was going to love this promo as soon as I saw the title in my YouTube feed. After all, it's from 1981 NBC. Can we all just agree to call late 1970s-early 1980s NBC The Second Golden Age of Television?

NBC has an odd mash-up of programming tonight, with CHiPs the mainstay being preceded by Boomer and a Flinstones special. The latter was the final Bedrock-themed primetime special the network ran in the 80-81 season.

I have one problem with this promo: Casey Kasem says Fred unwittingly enters a marathon, yet IMDB says he decides to be the first Bedrock citizen to enter the Rockstone Marathon. Well, we have to believe Casey, right?
