It Was A Thing on TV Tripleheader (Episodes #65-66 & Live Show #2): Supermarket Sweep, We Got It Made & Press Your Luck

This week on It Was A Thing on TV the gang heads out to the supermarket and then follows it up by living the high life in a fancy NYC apartment while trying to avoid the Whammy.

First, everybody loves the action and fun on Supermarket Sweep. The show we know and love was quite different in its first season, a bare bones version with some odd additions that didn’t last long. Come for the caviar, stay for Mr. Yuk.

Next, We Got It Made was a dog of a show in 1983-84 that NBC tried to get people to watch by having the cast show up on NBC broadcasts. Yet, it got a second season for the Primetime Starts at 7:30 block in 1987.

Finally, we present to you our second live show as we cover the second season premiere of Press Your Luck with Elizabeth Banks on ABC.
