Tuesdays in the 60s and early 70s was generally the lowest rated night of the week.
CBS sent most of its rural comedies to Tuesday in the 1970-71 season to kill them off -- Beverly Hillbillies at 7:30 p.m., Green Acres at 8 p.m. and Hee Haw at 8:30 p.m.
All three were cancelled at end of season, along with Mayberry RFD, which aired on Mondays.
Hee Haw went on to find a long life in syndication.

But remember, you only had three networks to choose from. So, the stress level would be been a little less than having to choose out of 3,000 channels.
And you could always flip back and forth between two shows during the commercial break. That is, unless you had to adjust the antenna to receive the second station clearly. Then, it really wasn't worth it trying to flip between two stations.

Networks don't schedule there #1 show for the night with the least viewership. Why do you think Dallas aired on Fridays throughout the 80s.
It wasn't until sometime in the 90s that viewership on Friday and Saturdays began to fall of substantially to the point where the networks mostly air repeats or news shows on those nights.
No idea why Tuesdays was considered a slow night in the 60s and 70s, but it was. I guess that changed by the mid 70s when Happy Days began airing on Tuesdays with Laverne & Shirley and Three's Company soon premiering as part of the Tuesday lineup. Those were all programming decisions made by Fred Silverman which helped take ABC to the top of the ratings.

For a few years I've been trying to find info on the Twin Cities tv listings for the first 2 weeks of December of 1963.

NY Times review June 6, 1968 Vincent Canby
QUITE unintentionally, "For Singles Only" may be the definitive movie about certain aspects of southern California life.The film, which opened at neighborhood theaters here yesterday, is a mindless, witless romantic drama about the mindless, witless young people who live, swim and boogoloo all day in one of those southern California apartment houses restricted to chamois-skinned unmarrieds.It stars John Saxon, an actor who looks a lot like Marlon Brando, and Mary Ann Mobley, a former Miss America. Milton Berle plays the social director at the apartment house, and Lana Wood is seen as a girl wronged by a married wolf who sneaks into the singles paradise.Typical of the values in the film itself is a statement in a publicity brochure about Miss Wood. She is, says the brochure, the younger sister of Natalie and "a talented actress in her own right."The movie, which is really an impotent fantasy about the sex life of the young, was produced by Sam Katzman ("Jungle Jim in the Forbidden Land," "Life Begins at 17," etc.) Possibly only an elderly movie producer living in southern California could remain alive and yet be so dead to the meaning of the world around him.Singular California
FOR SINGLES ONLY, screenplay by Hal Collins and Arthur Dreifuss based on a story by Arthur Hoerl and Albert Derr. Directed by Mr. Dreifuss; produced by Sam Katzman.

Both the TV movie "Hernandez" and "The Bold Ones: The New Doctors: The Night Crawler" show a release date on NBC on January 16, 1973, r122.
I don't know which one aired at 8:00 p.m. that night, but they were both scheduled. There was probably a last-minute change, with "Hernandez" pre-empting "The Bold Ones," since "Hernandez" is listed as being a special presentation.
That doesn't mean the OP mocked up a fake TV Guide page. It would be real weird for someone to fake a TV Guide page that is exactly the same as what was on television that night.

Ohh, that Cleveland Friday night TV schedule that r107 posted has a repeat showing of Cinderella with Lesley Ann Warren and Stuart Damon.
I'd probably skip the sacred ABC Friday night lineup of Brady Bunch, Partridge Family, Room 222, Odd Couple and Love, American Style to watch Cinderella.

I received a portable TV for my 13th birthday in 1973. It was small enough to sit on my desk in my bedroom, and it was black and white. But it was a TV, that's all that mattered.

I used to read the TV Guide as a kid. We didn't have that much to read back then and we lived 12 miles from the library.

I'm going for the Robert Foxworth double bill
Hawaii Five-O at 8:30 p.m. on CBS and on Frankenstein at 11:30 p.m. on ABC.
Fortunately I have a 2 hour break to enjoy one or two Swanson's Hungry Man Fish and Chips TV Dinners
There are a few left in the freezer from 1973.

Sally Field plays a married woman in the r128 intro, but is still “The [italic]Girl [/italic]with Something Extra.”

I notice Helen Lawson’s series BOTTOMS UP! isn’t in that NBC retrospective.
Didn’t she play a hardened streetwalker who inherits a tavern?

[quote] You had a TV in your room???
Yes. It was a smallish B&W table top set, not one of those behemoth Magnavox monstrosities with color. That was in the living room.

[quote]Dan Curtis made-for-TV movies were not filler
Indeed. Not if he's the same Dan Curtis who produced and directed the Winds of War and War & Remembrance miniseries.

OP- 1973 was the good old days. 1973 was the very year that our standard of living in the United States peaked. It's also the year that our manufacturing peaked- both have dropped dramatically since then.

1973 was also the year Playgirl started publishing. Some of the celebrities we saw while growing up were full-frontal naked, or nearly so. That trend continued into the following year.

R103, I had my own TV from 10th grade (thanks, Grandmom!).
R69, I watched television every single weeknight, having done my homework before supper. Plus, I could now multi-task with Science Fair projects (remember school-wide Science Fairs? They're defunct, I think.), e.g. As for practicing (trombone, in my case), eh. I did enough.
But miss my TV?! No way! Nobody could record/TIVO/DVR then! I always watched Wild Wild West, Peyton Place, I Spy, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., The Avengers, Mission: Impossible, Wagon Train (if Michael Burns was on), Star Trek, That Was The Week That Was, Ed Sullivan, The Smothers Brothers, Hootenanny, Shindig, Hullabaloo, and more!
My high school senior year, 1966--67:

Was that Frankenstein "Frankenstein: The True Story"? If so it was excellent and heartbreaking, starring Michael Sarrazin and introducing Jane Seymour as Prima:

Speaking of Seymour, did you know she has two different colored eyes?
She is a mutant.

Every national network TV schedule from the 1940s to the present is located here. I remember watching shows in the 1966-67 schedule, on the same nights and sequences listed here.
