August 25, 2010: I Want My MTV

I added 22 more ads today from August and September 1989. There's a full-page ad in the ABC gallery for the pilot episode of Life Goes On (Patti LuPone, Bill Smitrovich, Monique Lanier, Chris Burke, Kellie Martin) and there's one in the CBS gallery for the premiere of Rescue 911 (William Shatner). The FOX gallery has two full-page ads, one for the premiere episode of Open House titled "Fish Out of Water" (Danny Gans, Alison LaPlaca, Philip Charles MacKenzie, Ellen Degeneres) and one for the Married...With Children episode titled "Hot Off the Grill" (Ed O'Neill, Katie Sagal, David Faustino, Chritina Applegate) and there's one in the NBC gallery for the daytime premiere of 227 (Marla Gibbs, Jackēe). There are seven ads in the Vintage Cable Ads gallery. There are four MTV ads, two for Remote Control, a half-page ad and a quarter-page ad, a full-page ad and TV Guide close-up description for the 1989 MTV Video Music Awards and one for Week in Rock. There's a full-page ad for WWF SummerSlam on pay-per-view (Hulk Hogan, Brutus "The Barber" Beefcake, "Macho Man" Randy Savage, Zeus), a TNN ad for the premiere of A Conversation with Dinah (Dinah Shore, Nancy Reagan) and four TNT ads for the mini-series "The Nightmare Years" (Sam Waterson, Marthe Keller). There are seven more in the TBS gallery, one for the live special, Voyager: Rendevous with Neptune (Carl Sagan), two for afternoon and early evening shows The Brady Bunch, The Munsters, Good Times, The Beverly Hillbillies, The Andy Griffith Show, The Jeffersons and Sanford & Son, a full-page ad (Jimmy Walker, Andy Griffith, Buddy Ebsen, Isabel Sanford, Al Lewis) and another ad with Isabel Sanford, a full-page ad for Clash of the Champions: Fall Brawl '89 and three more movie ads for "Fireball Foreward," "Battle of the Bulge" (Henry Fonda, Robert Ryan) and "Sands of Iwo Jima." The last two were shown under the TBS Remembers World War II banner. More from September and October 1989 are on the way...
