Here's Part 3 (the final part) of an episode of the prototypical "reality show" Real People on WMAQ Channel 5.

In this segment, hosts (from L - R) Byron Allen, Skip Stephenson, Sarah Purcell and John Barbour sum up rhyming "thoughts to think about," with John musing about Three Mile Island's nuclear waste, Byron waxing philosophic about Gerald Ford's aborted 1980 Presidential run, Sarah ruminating on credit card charges, and Skip giving the lowdown on housing prices. With that, they say their good nights.

Announcer Jack Harrell (who was later the original announcer for The People's Court) previews the guests of next week's edition as the credits roll (look for an RCA TK-44A camera with a sticker featuring the 1976 NBC logo on the side):
