ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: THE DOCTORS RETURNS - WHAT STARS CAN YOU SPOT?

Hollywood lore holds that serialized stories, even primetime megahits like Dallas, Dynasty, or Desperate Housewives (as well as shows that don’t begin with the letter D), don’t do well in reruns.

That’s why Retro TV deciding to air two back-to-back episodes of The Doctors (not the one you’re thinking of; the daytime drama) every weekday starting this Monday, September 29, is big news in the worlds of both soaps and syndication.

Though The Doctors ran on NBC from 1963 to 1982, Retro TV plans to begin with the 1967 season, the first year the show switched to color.

However, this 21st-century airing of The Doctors isn’t merely for original fans of the show. Before They Were Stars spotters should also get a kick out of catching early glimpses of future Academy Award nominees, Daytime Emmy winners, cult sci-fi figures, and sitcom stars!

But you can’t tell the players without a program. Check out my handy-dandy listing for Entertainment Weekly as your guide by clicking: http://community.ew.com/2014/09/23/stars-return-in-reruns-of-the-doctors/
