Top Ten #286: Special "Probably rooting for the Chiefs" edition!

1) My Three Sons: All 12 seasons are finally on Prime Video, and it's a hodgepodge of edited episodes, complete episodes, missing episodes, and whatnot, but at least most of it is there!

2) National Kazoo Day: An excuse to watch this classic again!

3) Alan Alda: Happy birthday! I'm sure in lieu of presents, he would appreciate...curiosity.

4) Endless parade of awards: Oscar nominations came out this week, but I am just glad the Battys got in there first this season.

5) 1984 Golden Globes: Speaking of awards, 40 years ago today, the Globes were held, and the big TV winners were Dynasty, Fame, and The Thorn Birds. Buffalo Bill got some love, too:

6) The Trial of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg: An ABC TV movie 50 years ago dramatized the famous case and starred Alan Arbus (not Arkin) and Brenda Vacarro.

7) Scooby-Doo: Warner Archive announced 10 Hanna-Barbera made-for-TV movies are coming to Blu-Ray, and it feels like half of them involve Scooby. Give Scoob credit for being a TV star with more longevity than most.

8) Willam Conrad: Me-TV has a funny little story about Conrad and his voice-over work.

9) Catch Comedy: The channel has an interesting marathon this weekend, running short-lived sitcoms. Today's lineup includes Brooklyn Bridge, Square Pegs, and Ferris Bueller.

10) R.I.P. Charles Osgood: Not to be confused with the other bookish-seeming folksy Charleses whose reputations aren't as great these days.
