Mid season?

R1 No, back then the season usually ended in late March or early April for a lot of shows, unless it was one of the shows that was doing 30 episodes a season (mostly comedies).

An example - the last year of MTM. 24 episodes, started in September and had a new episode every week except NYE. Ended in March.

R6 I was 9 and I cried too, especially when she was on stage by herself at the end.
