The slow reveal: it used to be one day at a time for TV's climactic extended forecasts

Back before all the on-air graphics kicked in, weathercasters had their hands full with manually operated equipment. Imagine the built-in suspense when extended forecasts were unveiled one after the other. We've got video proof here while also raising the question of whether any of D-FW's major TV news providers might want to consider a "Throwback Week" in which other antiques return. Plus, the latest D-FW Nielsen ratings show the Texas Rangers flexing mightily again. And Episode 6 of our pre-season warmup act -- TV THEME SONG-ville -- reprises the most majestic mood music ever for an HBO movie or miniseries.
