May 6, 2017: All New Episodes...Kids' WB

There are fourteen more ads today, from the November 6-12, 1999 issue of TV Guide Magazine, and from November 6-7, 1999 editions of The Blade. There's one addition, from TV Guide, to the ABC gallery, a Sunday, 11/7/99 full-page ad for Who Wants to be a Millionaire, hosted by Regis Philbin (Guess which hit show is back...Is that your final answer?). There are five additions, from TV Guide, to the FOX gallery, starting with a three-page fold-out color ad for The X-Files season seven premiere episode, "The Sixth Extension." I've split it into to files: page one and pages two and three, with a larger version, here. Next is a Saturday, 11/6/99 ad for Mad TV (100 episodes...and still tasteless!). There's also a Sunday, 11/7/99 two-page ad for The Simpsons, "E-I-E-I-(Annoyed Grunt)" and Futurama, "When Aliens Attack" (Welcome to Tomacco Country, Smooth and Mild...). There's also a larger version, here. And there's a 11/7/99 page-and-a-half ad and "close-up" description for that week's episode of The X-Files starring David Duchovny. You can find a larger version, here. There are two additions to the NBC gallery, both color ads for a Sunday night NBC Hallmark Entertainment Event, "The Magical Legend of Leprechauns," inserted into the Saturday night listings. The first ad featured pics of stars Randy Quaid, Whoopi Goldberg, Colm Meany and Roger Daltry. The second ad was on the back side of the first (Click on NBC.com to win $125,000 in gold...the Kodak Pot o' Gold Sweepstakes...). There next five ads are from The Blade. The first one is an addition to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, a Saturday, 11/6/99 ad, in the Peach Section, for "Tales From the Hood" on Sci-Fi Channel. The next four are additions to the ToledoVision 5 gallery starting with a Saturday, 11/6/99 ad, in the Peach Section, for all-new episodes of Kids' WB shows. Next is a Sunday, 11/7/99 ad, in the Arts & Entertainment Section, for Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, "Honey, I'm Kung-Fu Fighting." The next two are scans from the Sunday, 11/7/99 issue of TV Week. There's one more "TV5 Millennium Moment" ad (Buckeye CableSystem brought cable to Toledo in 1966...), followed by a full-page color ad from the back cover. It's for Detroit Pistons and Big Ten basketball games on TV5 and other Buckeye channels. Today's last ad is an addition, from TV Guide, to the TBS gallery, a Sunday, 11/7/99 ad for the movie, "Batman & Robin" with George Clooney, Chris O'Donnell, Uma Thurman, Alicia Silverstone, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. More ads, from the November 6-12, 1999 issue of TV Guide Magazine, and from the online archives of The Toledo Blade, are on the way...
