What shows would a 9 going on 10 and a 7 going on 8 year old girl watch after getting home from school (they would arrive at home at about 3 pm or so)? I know what kind of shows they would want to watch (trust me, I know my 80s nostalgia for shows--it is truly outrageous), but have no idea of the times they would show. Wikipedia offers what the main networks had in a line up and Saturday morning lineups (you can see all sorts of lineups here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Television_schedules ), but nothing for afterschool that kids would watch. I don't remember much of it because in 1985 the only damn thing I consistantly watched was Sesame Street, My Little Pony, and Mr. Rogers. (Also, I was 5.) Also, since they have cable, what would they watch on things like Disney and Nickelodeon?
I wouldn't care so much but I'm writing the meet book for an American Girl Historical of the 1980s and I want the stuff done right. Thanks in advance!
