This Day in TV History: 50 years ago tonight (Friday, August 25) in TV Guide

We just finished the RNC coverage, and now it's time for Olympic coverage! ABC gears up with a two-hour preview special tonight looking at the ill-fated 1972 Munich Summer Olympics. Let's look at what else is scheduled to run in prime time on Friday, August 25, 1972, thanks to a Los Angeles metropolitan edition of TV Guide.

CBS' night is built around a live preseason football game beginning at 6:00 local time. Here's a closer look:

NBC follows Partners with Don Adams with a news special, and that gets its own close-up as well:

The final show on the 3 networks is a welfare special airing on the NBC channel.
