When Houston had six TV stations

It's Friday and it's another look at what was on local TV in the days before cable television. This schedule is from Aug. 9, 1974.

Some items of interest:

  • "The New Price is Right" aired at 2 p.m. on KHOU. It was only 30 minutes long.

  • Houstonians had three chances to catch "Electric Company" on KUHT.

  • KRIV-26 was known as KVRL back then.

  • The 1958 film "Satan's Satellites" aired on KHOU at 12:30 a.m.

Here's a look at what was on local TV in 1964.

Another bullet to add - I notice that page is the schedule for August 9, 1974. Much of the TV programming listed was likely pre-empted that day for special news reports because August 9, 1974 was the day Richard Nixon resigned as President of the United States.
