The NBC Sunday Night Movie was a weekly film block which ran on NBC on Sunday nights from 9 to 11 pm or 8:30 pm until 11 pm. This was NBC's counterprogramming to the CBS Sunday Movie .

The last film to air was Friday Night Lights with 2.6 million viewers. [1] During the mid-1980s the Sunday Night Movie was aired consistently enough to be ranked in the top 30 highest-rated programs for 1985–1988. [2]

Between 1976 and 1981, the Sunday Night Movie was replaced by an umbrella program, The Big Event. Although many Big Events were film premieres, made for TV movies and installments of miniseries, some were specials and sports events.

The NBC Monday Movie was a television anthology series of films that debuted on February 4, 1963. It was referred to as Monday Night at the Movies prior to the mid-1980s. Contrary to popular contemporary belief, the corporate initials, "NBC", were, at first, not part of the official title for the network's anthologies of old movies, and would not be for years to come. Thus, in 1964, when the show was transferred by the network's programming executives to Wednesday nights, it became Wednesday Night at the Movies. And in 1965, when the program moved to Tuesdays, it became Tuesday Night at the Movies. It would remain there until 1969. The name would henceforth change depending on whichever night of the week the program aired. Moreover, by 1968, there was once again a weekly Monday Night at the Movies on the air. It ran until 1997.

Must See TV

Must See TV is an advertising slogan that was used by the NBC to brand its primetime blocks during the 1990s, and most often applied to the network's Thursday night lineup, which featured some of its most popular sitcoms and drama series of the period, allowing the network to dominate prime time ratings on Thursday nights in the 1980s and 1990s. Ratings for NBC's lineup fell during the mid-to-late 2000s, and today the network ranks behind Fox, ABC, and CBS on Thursday nights. In 2015, the network canceled comedy programming on Thursdays and switched entirely to dramas. However, the branding returned for the 2017–18 TV season.
