When the Good Witch says the Punchkins have been watching too much Magnum, P.I.
(1980), she is referring to the fact that Fame was losing in the ratings to Magnum P.I. (which was broadcast in the same time slot opposite it) every week. Fame would in fact be canceled by NBC at the end of the second season, but was kept on the air in syndication thanks to combined efforts of the BBC and Rai-Radiotelevisione Italiana TV2. See more
