It’s almost Christmas, and that means…reruns! On Sunday (Dec. 23, 7 P.M. ET), ABC’s Life Goes On will once again be visiting Hawaii. Nothing unusual there. Most California-produced shows sooner or later make a pilgrimage to the Aloha State. The unwritten rule of such sun-drenched episodes is that Don Ho must somehow be included; indeed, the Thatcher family meets him, as has every TV tourist since Family Affair’s Buffy and Jody. Hmmm, official network greeter…not a bad gig Mr. Ho has there. I wouldn’t mind applying to be his successor, but I hear Sonny Bono is campaigning for that job too.
