Top Ten #159

1) National Balloon Ascension Day: You know what THAT means! It's time to say hello to our friend Henry Winkler and all his pals at ABC!

2) Betty White: Not that we'd want to or would be able to, but many outlets are making sure we don't forget the late actress. I think the only channel not running a marathon is ESPNU.

3) Houston Knights: Crackle gets 2022 off to a HIGH-OCTANE start with its addition of this short-lived 1980s series:

4) The Pat Sajak Show: debuted this day in 1989.

6) Bionic Woman: Super 7 announced new Reaction Figures (TM, I'm guessing) of the show:

7) Other shows premiering on various diginets this week: Among them, we have Amen and Gimme a Break on Cozi, Welcome Back Kotter on Antenna, and Hawaii Five-0 on Heroes and Icons.

10) Marilyn Bergman: R.I.P.: The late songwriter and hubby Alan had a prolific career for film and TV, including creating themes for Good Times, Alice, and this awesome number:
