I remember when this premiered back in Albuquerque, NM in the 1980s. For most of it's run, it was on KOB and hosted by Gary Doll and Karla Aragon. We watched it every night because it had interesting features, and of course, there was Chef Tell ("I see you!!!").
Around 1985-1986, KOB abandoned the format and it was given to KGGM, the CBS affiliate at the time. KGGM had their own evening program called Stopwatch. So they just renamed the show "PM Magazine", however, it was nowhere near as fun as the KOB version.
I moved near Austin, Texas in 1986, which didn't have a PM Magazine. It didn't really surprise me since Austin, TX (there were only 4 stations when I lived there) affiliates were afraid to take chances.
I do miss this show, and I think it would be great if they brought it back to the rest of the nation. I think it would work today.
