It Should've Been on a Saturday: Teen Week on Body Language (1985)

Body Language, a mid-80's CBS game show that was a revival of Goodson-Todman's 1975 series, Showoffs, had been on the air less than a year when the network acceded to viewer requests to let kids play the game.

And so, right before Easter, on the week of April 8-12, 1985, the first Teen Week commenced on Body Language. Actors Jason Bateman, at the time on It's Your Move, and Kim Fields (The Facts of Life) were featured stars.

This was so successful, the kids were brought back during the summer. Unfortunately, Body Language was cancelled in January 1986.

Rating: B.
