1986 is an American news magazine series that aired on NBC from June 10, 1986 to December 30, 1986. The lead anchors were Roger Mudd and Connie Chung. Maria Shriver also contributed to the program. The show was NBC's 14th attempt in 17 years to launch a prime time news program in a similar fashion that CBS and ABC has successfully done. Roger Mudd was particularly agitated over the quick cancellation of the program.
