January 3, 2010: You Were Expecting the Cleavers?

 

I added 23 more ads today from October and November 1995 including some for Halloween and Thanksgiving. There are three in the ABC gallery, including one for the NYPD Blue episode "Torah! Torah! Torah!" (Sharon Lawrence, Dennis Franz, Jimmy Smits). This was the first NYPD Blue episode to air on WTVG-TV 13 (Channel 13 is now ABC and channel 24 is now NBC). There are four ads (in one image) for Wednesday night shows, one for the Ellen episode "She Ain't Friendly, She's My Mother" (Ellen Degeneres), one for The Drew Carey Show episode "Drew in Court," one for the Grace Under Fire episode "Matthew Gets Busted" and one for The Naked Truth episode "Real Life Henry Higgins Turns Dork into Duke" (Tea Leoni) and there's one for the Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman episode "Ultrawoman" (Teri Hatcher, Dean Cain, Shelley Long). The CBS gallery has three more, a 1-1/2 page ad for The Late Show with David Letterman (in L.A.), a full-page ad with a Thanksgiving theme for four Monday night shows, The Nanny Episode "Having His Baby," the Can't Hurry Love episode "Glove Story," the Murphy Brown episode "The Humboldt Dolt" and the High Society episode "Dolce and G'bye Now" and an ad and TV Guide close-up description for the Chicago Hope episode "Stand" (Richard Pryor, Adam Arkin). There are two in the FOX gallery, including a full-page ad for "Here Come the Munsters" (Edward Hermann, Robert Morse, Veronica Hamel, Christine Taylor, Matthew Botuchis). This was part of Fox's Halloween Bash IV. The other ad is one (on two pages) for two Wednesday night shows, the Beverly Hills 90210 episode "Offensive Interference" (Tiffany Amber Thiessen) and the Party of Five episode "Where There's Smoke" (Jeremy London, Neve Campbell). There are four in the NBC gallery, a full-page ad for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (for shows airing opposite the Letterman L.A. shows), one for the Law & Order episode "Paranoia," one on two pages (also with a Thanksgiving theme) for four Thursday night shows, the Friends episode "The One with the List," The Single Guy episode "Sister," the Seinfeld episode "The Pool Guy" and the Caroline in the City episode "Caroline and the Balloon" and a full-page ad for Days of Our Lives. There's one ad in the PBS gallery for The Newshour with Jim Lehrer, one full-page ad in the UPN gallery for "John Carpenter's Body Bags" and one ad in the WB gallery for the Sister, Sister episode "Thanksgiving in Hawaii" (Tia and Tamera Lowry). The Vintage Cable Ads gallery has three ads, another Discovery Channel ad for Wild Discovery ("Creepy Creatures"), one for the Nick Jr. Primetime Preview on Nick-at-Nite and a TNN ad for The Life and Times of Gary Cooper. There's also one in the CBN / Family Channel gallery for Newhart and one in the ToledoVision 5 gallery for Tales from the Crypt.

The last of the 1995 ads from November and December plus one 1996 ad (by request) for the premiere of 3rd Rock from the Sun, are on the way...
