l Most ABC stations outside of KABC Los Angeles did not clear most of the shows (in an irony, some ABC stations, such as KGTV, carried "All My Children" at 3:30 though like many ABC stations declined to carry "Edge" in favor of syndicated programming at 3pm following the popular "Hospital".)

1984/07/30:

* during this and next week, the Olympics pre-empted most of the ABC schedule, but ABC decided to air its three popular soaps for 40-minutes each for two weeks. This was the only time the soaps aired on all of the coasts at the same time, meaning that AMC aired at 2pm ET/1pm CT/11am PT for example.

It was also the first time ABC aired a daytime show simultaneously on all time zones since "Break the Bank" aired at 2:30ET/1:30CT/11:30PT in 1976.

Also note that most of Arizona did not observe Daylight Saving Time. Therefore, the times for Mountain Standard Time are the same as Pacific Daylight Time.
