Nov. 23, 2009: What's So Funny?

I added 17 more today from July and August 1976. The NBC gallery has an ad for the last show of the first season of NBC's Saturday Night (Live). Louise Lasser hosted and was then banned from the show by Lorne Michaels. See more here. The channel 2 gallery has three full-page ads for The Mike Douglas Show, one with David Brenner and Pat Cooper, one with Danny Thomas and one for shows from California. The channel 7 gallery has an ad for 7:30 shows Let's Make a Deal (with Jay Stewart) and Michigan Outdoors (with Jerry Chiappetta). The channel 50 gallery has an ad for Dinah! (with Fred Astaire), one for The Merv Griffin Show (with Mac Davis in Las Vegas) and one for Steve Allen's Laugh-Back. The channel 50 movie gallery has two ads for Bill Kennedy at the Movies, one for "Young Man with a Horn" (Kirk Douglas & Lauren Bacall) and one for "Dive Bomber." There are also ads for "Garden of Evil," "Cash McCall," "Mildred Pierce" and "Captain Blood." There's an ad for in the channel 20 gallery for It Takes a  Thief and in the Random Pages gallery is a page from Sunday, 8/8/76. Among the shows on that page are Colditz and The Onedin Line, both seen on channel 9. More from August and September 1976 are on the way...
