Here is the answer to the timeline, in which year did each of the following things take place? Dan Rather walked off the set of CBS to protest the U.S. Open cutting into his broadcast, resulting in six minutes of dead air. American Bandstand was cancelled after 30 years on the air. And Elizabeth Shue took a bunch of child actors whose names we can't remember on some Adventures in Babysitting in 1987. That same year Richard Marx released this song whose video that starred Marx' future wife Cynthia Rhodes. Rhodes also played Penny Johnson in the movie Dirty Dancing, and played "Rosanna" in the Toto video. Here’s “Don’t Mean Nothing.”
