    please dont take the show off. Not everyone wants to see reality shows all day long. You took GL off and now this. Proctor & Gamble you are getting awful.

    I also read it will include the “American Bandstand” spin-off WHERE THE ACTION IS. It’s safe to assume that the follow up to WTAI, “Happenin'” Will also be included.

    It would be nice if they published a list of what shows/episode exist and are missing so fans can help them locate the lost shows like the British fans have been helping the BBC locate missing episodes and segments of “Top of The Pops”
