Have you ever tried searching for this info on imdb.com, tv.com and epguides.com? Not so easy, is it?
You won't be frustrated anymore.
I've added a feature above that let's you see the US primetime network TV schedule on any date between 1/1/1983 and 10/23/2005. That's right. Pick a date and find out what aired that night.
You're probably thinking, "I'll bet you only included first-run TV series!" Uh-uh. I've also added the following shows to the trivialTV database:
- series repeats, including ep titles for some repeat showings.
- movies—theatrical films and made-for-TV movies.
- specials, such as ''Fashion Rocks'' and Hurricane Relief Concerts.
- award shows and pageants, with pageant winners.
- sporting events and final scores.
If you have any suggestions, comments, corrections or additions, feel free to e-mail me.
