Hello, guys! I'm back with more of "The Colbys" and a new "Steven & Bart" series on my original YouTube channel.
Thank you for all your comments and messages - I'm sorry I wasn't able to respond sooner, too busy with my work and traveling, and I didn't want to make any additional empty promises.
I hope to continue posting "The Colbys" on Thursday nigths, which means we should now be done with the season in May - just like the regular TV season in the US. :)
I'll also try to post some additional pictures, videos and articles about "Dynasty" in the days to come. Again, I would hate to make any promises, but do check back from time to time.
So, no - the site is not dead :) Besides, we can't have our friend Yvan committ suicide. :)
All right, here's now the usual rundown of facts concerning the episode you're about to see:
ORIGINAL AIRDATE: Thursday, December 18, 1986 at 9:00-10:00pm on the ABC TV Network
ORIGINAL TV GUIDE SYNOPSIS: Jason learns that Connie has disappeared; Kolya receives tragic news from his sister in the Soviet Union.
NIELSEN RATINGS: Ranked 52nd (tie) for the week of Dec. 15, 1986
TRIVIA: CBS aired an episode of "Designing Women" against this episode of "The Colbys," moving the show from its successful Monday night time slot, in order to boost its Thursday night line-up. The move was however disastrous as the sitcom sank to 58th place (from 20th the week before). Star Dixie Carter was quoted as saying: "We did not win over 'The Colbys'?! I didn't expect that..."
