You'll find thirteen more ads today, from the October 25-31, 1997 issue of TV Guide Magazine, and from 10/25/97 and 10/30/97 issues of The Blade. There's one addition to the Channel 13 gallery, a Monday, 10/27/97 TV Guide ad for The Rosie O'Donnell Show and 13 Action News at 5PM. Next are two additions (both TV Guide ads) to the Channel 13 News gallery for two "sweeps" stories on 13 Action News (Greg Johans, Diane Larson), a Tuesday, 10/28/97 ad ("Toledo Marathoners Make the Run of Their Lives in New York."), followed by a Wednesday, 10/29/97 ad ("How Long Will You Live?"). There's one addition to the Channel 24 News gallery, a Thursday, 10/30/97 full-page Peach Section ad for NBC 24 News, New at 6 and 11 (Dan Lovett, Lisa Guyton, Jim Tichy, Bill Spencer). The picture is rather dark, especially the part with "Blizzard Bill Spencer." There's one addition to the ABC gallery, a full-page color TV Guide ad on the back cover (November. There's never been a better time to own a TV.), similar to this 8/9-15/97 TV Guide back-cover ad. There's also one addition to the NBC gallery, a Thursday, 10/30/97 TV Guide ad for ER, "Good Touch, Bad Touch" (Anthony Edwards). There's one addition to the PBS gallery, too, a full-page color TV Guide ad for PBS children's programming including Barney & Friends, The Magic School Bus, and Tots TV (Why I like TV...This is why there's PBS). There are two additions to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, both of them from the Saturday, 10/25/97 Blade Sports Section, the first ad for a Michigan vs. Michigan State football game on ESPN, sponsored by ProMedica, the second ad for a Detroit Pistons vs. Denver Nuggets basketball game on WKBD-TV 50. There's one addition to the ToledoVision 5 gallery, a Saturday, 10/25/97 Peach Section ad for Channel Umptee-3 TV, which premiered the next day on Kids' WB. There are three additions to the Vintage Cable Ads gallery starting with two full-page color TV Guide ads, the first ad for Blue's Clues on Nick Jr. and the second ad for Bear in the Big Blue House on Disney Channel. Today's last ad is a Monday, 10/27/97 ad for Wolves at Our Door on Discovery Channel. More ads, from the November 1-7, 1997 issue of TV Guide Magazine, and from the online archives of The Toledo Blade, are on the way...
