New television shows included "Wheel of Fortune", "The Jeffersons", "Barney Miller", "Starsky and Hutch", "Welcome Back, Kotter", "Ryan's Hope", "Good Morning America", and "Saturday Night Live".

The Cincinnati Reds won the World Series. The Pittsburgh Steelers won the Super Bowl. UCLA won the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.
