It Was a Thing on TV Twin Pack: Episodes 114 & 115: Carter Country and Caesar’s Challenge

This week It Was a Thing on TV gives you two very different shows that both have the same initials! 

First, who knew racism could be so funny…?!  Carter Country somehow ran two seasons, despite a character who was an out-and-out racist.  Only one of us three could make it through an entire episode, and for good reason.  File this one under “doesn’t age well.” 

Then, the last NBC daytime game show from 1993-94 was a good one, a true challenge.  Caesar’s Challenge had Ahmad Rashad, gladiators, and a rotating cage of letters.  Also in this episode, the guys rattle off the name of everyone in Arizona in 1993 they can think of.
