The Watergate hearings, which ran on three networks simultaneously in daytime during the summer of 1973, added more anger among the soap opera fans who couldnʹt get to see “As The World Turns” and “Days of Our Lives” among others. One TV announcer announced one pre-emption like this: “The Invisible Man will not be seen tonight”….

A white Ford Bronco drifted slowly down a Los Angeles freeway with a phalanx of LAPD cruisers trailing behind. Maybe it was the parade-route pace, but the police cars seemed to be escorting the Bronco rather than pursuing it. Crouched inside, we were told, was a desperate O.J.
