 SPECIAL EDITION wfiSmk I Not Athe Year in Review In an hour-long special edition, the Not Necessarily the News team takes a typically irreverent look back at 1983. Nothing is sacred and everything is fair game for the news-breakers of the hit comedy series that the New York Daily News called "the funniest show on television." December 10,12,14,18,20,23,27,31 12 Six rambunctious teenagers are humiliated by the brutish proprietor of a brothel, and they aim to get even. Their outrageous escapades make for a rowdy, raunchy comedy of adolescence that takes an unblushing leer at sexual hang-ups of the '50s. The box office smash features Susan Clark and Alex Karras (Victor/Victoria). Adult language and humor, nudity, strong sexual content. (R-1:39) December 1,4,7,10,13,16,31
