Edit: Our friend over at the Hollywood Reporter, Elizabeth Snead informed us that the information in this article is incorrect. She tells us “Dark Shadows was not set in 1972. It originally aired weekdays on the ABC television network, from June 27, 1966 to April 2, 1971. I know. I used to rush home to watch it! Eons before Tivo.”
