Here's a few segments of an episode (entitled "The Guns of Harry August") of another short-lived series that ran over the NBC Network in the early 1980's - and therefore, in the Windy City, on our own WMAQ Channel 5 - Gavilan. (don't read too quick and mistake it for "Galivan")

This show was one of several over the years that starred the late Robert Urich, here in the role of Robert Gavilan, an ex-CIA agent currently in the employ of an oceanographic institute run by Marion Jaworski (Kate Reid). Also co-starred the late Patrick Macnee (of The Avengers fame) as Milo Bentley.

TNT aired reruns of this show in the middle 1990s.

On top of Just Men! hosted by Betty White where she won a daytime emmy for her hosting gig, but the updated version of $ale of the Century & Hit Man debuted the same day. Both Just Men! & Hit Man ended after 3 months, but $ale stayed on until Friday, March 24, 1989. That's 6 years and 2 months & 1,578 shows in all.
