TV Guide

 
 


As a kid (and monster movie freak) growing up in suburban Detroit in the '70s and early '80s, one of my favorite pastimes was tearing through the new TV guide each week to see what spooky movie Sir Graves would be showing that Saturday. It was a ritual I savored and looked forward to for many years. Even to this day, nothing takes me back in time faster than flipping through some of my old, yellowed, dog-eared TV guides. It's a paper time machine! So for me, this page is almost the heart of this entire site.

Below are actual Sir Graves show listings culled from old Detroit TV guides and newspapers! You'll find the date and time each show aired, the movie/s shown that day (some afternoons were double and even triple features!), as well as the timeslot length for each week's show. I'm also including the lead-in/out programs, as the shows that were wrapped around Sir Graves tended to also make an impression and add to the overall atmosphere. In addition, while Sir Graves was mainly a Saturday afternoon show, he did do a few latenight specials over the years (particularly around Halloween), as well as a few Sunday afternoon airings when the show got bumped for sporting events on Saturday. For all these non-Saturday shows I put an asterisk next to the date, along with the day listed over in the Movie details column. And as added bonus, if you see a linked date, click it to hear audio from that show!

Additionally, to further complicate things, in the early '70s the show apparently ran twice a week for a while--both on Saturday afternoon, and on Friday night at 11:30! And there is certainly evidence of this in the reel-to-reel recordings housed here in the Media Crypt section, where I have a recording from a Friday night show in which Sir Graves does mention the next day's (Saturday's) movie lineup. So it appears there was a double-dose of Sir Graves for a time back then! I need to find and add those shows now. I've also been told that very early on in the beginning of the show's history, it actually aired exclusively on Friday nights only, before eventually settling in its permanent Saturday placement. I will try to corroborate these fuzzy Friday night mysteries and report my findings here. Either way, there's still more data to hunt down--I definitely want to fill in the various gaps in my list below, and I will continually update this page as I do (and add all the Friday night listings, too, if that can all be sorted out).

What's on Sir Graves this week?Finally, there's still other work left to be done beyond the things I've already mentioned, because keep in mind that the listings on this page are all Detroit listings only, and it does not cover the other two stations outside of Michigan that also carried Sir Graves in the past--yes, there were more! In the early '70s Sir Graves was also carried (in slightly different versions) on Channel 43, WUAB-TV in Cleveland, and on Channel 9, WTOP-TV out of Washington D.C.. Both of these runs were relatively short, but listings from those markets would also be wonderful to see (not sure whether the movies were the same or not!), so if anyone out there can contribute any of those, I would really welcome the help! My goal is to eventually cover every single Sir Graves show EVER, from all three stations it ran on. This section won't be truly complete until I have chronicled everything.
