WHDH-TV came on the air as an ABC affiliate, but it carried many CBS 
and NBC shows that the other stations didn't carry.  It carried "Meet 
the Press" for awhile, as well as Huntley-Brinkley and Douglas 
Edwards news programs.  As I recall, before WHDH-TV came on the air, 
WGBH was carrying Meet the Press and Huntley-Brinkley, without 

WHDH-TV also carried some of NBC's mid-afternoon game shows, "Tic Tac 
Dough" and "It Could Be You."

On the other hand, Channel 7 continued to carry ABC's Mickey Mouse 
Club for another year after Channel 5 came on, probably because of 
contractual obligations.
