Near the end of 1981, following the departure of Chuck Woolery from ''Wheel of Fortune'' [[note]](which Silverman had cancelled in 1980, only to reverse the decision after a "series finale" had been taped in favor of cutting DavidLetterman's daytime talk show from 90 to 60 minutes; he had already cancelled ''Series/HighRollers'', ''Series/TheHollywoodSquares'' and ''Series/ChainReaction'' to make room for it- ironically, the latter show reused music from ''Supertrain'' as the theme)[[/note]], Silverman strongly opposed series creator MervGriffin's choice of Pat Sajak (at the time, a weatherman at KNBC), claiming he was "too local". Merv's response was to stop production of ''Wheel''.
