July 29, 2010: The Latest and Greatest

I added another 21 ads today, all from January 1989. The CBS gallery has two ads for The Pat Sajak Show, one from a week before the premiere and a full-page ad and TV Guide close-up for the first show. Neither channel 11 in Toledo or channel 2 in Detroit carried the show. There are four ads in the NBC gallery, one for Saturday Night's Main Event (Hulk Hogan vs. Akeem), one for the daytime version of Wheel of Fortune (Rolf Benirschke, Vanna White), a full-page ad for NBC's late night shows (on the night of Pat Sajak's first show), The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, Late Night with David Letterman and Later...with Bob Costas and one for the Matlock episode "The Captain" (Andy Griffith) which was sponsored in part by Campbell's Soup. There are two in the Vintage Cable Ads gallery, a TNT full-page ad for "Finish Line" (James Brolin and son, Josh Brolin) and a CNN full-page ad for Planet of the Year: a CNN Special Report and Gorbachev's U.N. address. There are twelve in the TBS gallery, one which was on two-pages for the premiere of U.S. Olympic Gold and one for WCW Wrestling's Greatest Hits (Rick Flair) and ten more movie ads, one for "In the Heat of the Night" (Rod Steiger, Sidney Poitier), one for "Hustle" (Burt Reynolds), one for "A Man Called Horse" (Richard Harris), one for "Murder in Texas" (Farrah Fawcett, Sam Elliott, Andy Griffith), one for "Triumphs of a Man Called Horse" (Richard Harris), one for "Zardoz," one for "Tentacles" & "The Savage Bees," one for "Man Without a Star" (Kirk Douglas, Claire Trevor), one for "Little Big Man" (Dustin Hoffman) and one for Day of the Duke films "The War Wagon," "Sands of Iwo Jima" & "Big Jake" (John Wayne) and there's a WLIO-TV35 ad in the Ohio & W. Pennsylvania gallery for an Ohio State Basketball game at Indiana. More January 1989 ads are on the way...
