1. Its debut episode was the highest-rated show in Korean TV history, and presumably, it wasn’t so Koreans could pick up additional tips on jukebox repair or motorcycle-riding tricks.

FTP, name this spinoff of “Happy Days” starring Erin Moran as Howard and Marian Cunningham’s daughter and Scott Baio as...well.. a guy a Korean-American might be tempted to call “Dick.”

It's good, solid science, but also it's good, solid theology.” She later penned three sequels to that book, including, “A Wind in the Door,” “A Swiftly Tilting Planet,” and “Many Waters.” FTP, name this author of “A Wrinkle in Time.”

But it made a lasting impression, thanks perhaps more to memorable supporting performances by George Sanders and Judith Anderson than the work of leads Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine.

The ultimate NL and World Series champ, Los Angeles, finished behind Cincinnati, and the ultimate AL champion, the New York Yankees, finished behind both Milwaukee and Baltimore.
