But the show did air on ABC, and presumably if revived would air on ABC sometime on Saturdays.
As for what I said about ABC forcing DCP to have nothing on American Bandstand
but pop stars from Disney and pop stars generally, back in the past ABC did force the show to have on Kaptain Kool & The Kongs from The Kroft Supershow
a few times, which Dick Clark resented.
The only way to not
have this pressure would be for the show to be in syndication, but that market is as dead as a doornail. The show could
be on MTV or MTV 2 (Much Music & Much More music here in Canada), but both channels would do the same thing as ABC would, most likely.
