There's a Wednesday, 3/16/77 story, “WGTE-FM Claims Credit For First In Directing” and a Friday, 3/18/77 story, “Ch. 13 To Carry Nixon Series Of Interviews By David Frost.” There's also a Thursday, 3/24/77 story, “ABC Firmly In The Saddle As TV Season Nears End” and a Friday, 4/1/77 story, “Ch. 24 Takes Over No. 1 Spot In Toledo Prime-Time Ratings.” There's one addition to the Channel 13 gallery, a Saturday, 3/26/77 ad for the special, They Saw a Need: They Knew Their Craft, which previously aired on Channel 30 in February. See that ad here. There's also one addition to the Channel 24 gallery, a Wednesday, 3/23/77 ad for six of the prime-time ABC shows that made them number one in the ratings, Happy Days (Henry Winkler), Charlie's Angels (Farrah Fawcett Majors), The Six Million Dollar Man (Lee Majors), Welcome Back, Kotter (Gabe Kaplan) and The Bionic Woman (Lindsay Wagner). There are six more Channel 30 ads in the PBS gallery, including five more Festival 77 ads. There's a Monday, 3/14/77 ad for The Vienna Philharmonic, The Pallisers and Napoleon and Love and a Wednesday, 3/16/77 ad for Nova, Childhood, “An Only Child,” Scenes From a Marriage and Bergman: His Life and Art. Next is a Thursday, 3/17/77 ad for The Andersonville Trial, The MacNeil/Lehrer Report, Crockett's Victory Garden and World at War, “Pacific: February 1942-July 1945.” There's also a Saturday, 3/19/77 ad for The Strauss Family and Bar Mitzvah Boy and a Sunday, 3/20/77 ad for The Monty Python Reunion, Previn and the Pittsburgh and Masterpiece Theatre, “Upstairs, Downstairs.” And there's a Monday, 3/21/77 ad for The Incredible Bread Machine.

There are two additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Thursday, 3/17/77 ad (The CableSystem tower is as tall as a 35-story building...) and a Monday, 4/4/77 ad (If you think there's nothing good on television...) plus there are two additions to the Buckeye Channel 5 gallery. First is a Wednesday, 3/16/77 ad for movies (Wish Upon a Star) and a Saturday, 3/26/77 ad for AAU World Cup of Wrestling. Today's last ad is an addition to the Radio Station Ads gallery, a Thursday, 3/24/77 ad for a celebration of Maestro Arturo Toscanini's 110th. birthday on WGTE-FM 91.3.
