    And the other show showcased 1980. I wonder if that's the closest the two shows have had their countdowns timeframe

    I was thinking the same thing. I can't remember it happening like that in the past. I doubt they planned it that way though.

    Looks like the last time 1979 and 1980 were featured in the same weekend was back in December 17, 2016

    I must have not noticed it. They must schedule it that way. I wonder if it will happen again in a few months?
