Pics: ABC tries 45-min. shows

Published On: Apr 22 2013 12:11:35 AM EDT   Updated On: Apr 23 2013 06:22:32 AM EDT
Music Scene, The New People both had running time of 45 minutes

The networks run programs in 30- and 60-minute blocks. A few shows run for 90 minutes, but now ABC wants to try 45 minutes in length.

On Mondays, Music Scene will start at 7:30 and end at 8:15 with The New People kicking off at 8:15 until 9:00. The test will be if people will want to leave Gunsmoke 15 minutes into the program or in fact join it 15 late because they watch Music Scene. Only time will tell how they would fare, and it wasn't good. Check out the rest of the ABC lineup for 1969-70.
