What is your point, nysfboy? Do you think the first Hot 100 of 1978 should have a hundred debuts and not include any songs from the last week of 1977?

Exactly. The Hot 100 of 1978 should have all the songs that peaked from January 1, 1978-December 31, 1978.

Billboard's year-end charts cover the fourth week of November to the third week of November of the following year. They do not go by the calendar year.

I think at one time they were from 11/01 --> 10/31. I am pretty sure I heard Casey mention this on a few occasions.
