THE COLBYS #2.05 "Something Old, Something New"

In tonight's episode of "The Colbys" - a new Mrs. Colby arrives in Bel Air; Monica's former lover returns; and Bliss' Russian ballet dancer has a secret. Plus - an article about the show's season 2 focus on younger characters and "double-load" production schedule.

The producers tried to pull in younger eyeballs by shifting the focus away from Charlton Heston and other older stars and placing greater emphasis on the Colby kids. More on that and why they were filming two episodes at a time in the piece below (it was published in early November 1986).

Here is also a quick summary of this episode:

AIRDATE: Thursday, October 23, 1986 at 9:00-10:00pm on the ABC TV Network.

RATINGS: The episode ranked 55th out of 63 shows for the week of October 20.
