There are ten more ads today, from the December 25-31, 1999 issue of TV Guide Magazine, and from December 25-31, 1999 editions of The Blade. There are six additions, from The Blade, to the Buckeye CableSystem gallery, starting with a Saturday, 12/25/91 ad, in the Peach Section, for The Planet of the Apes Marathon on TBS. Next is a Tuesday, 12/28/99 ad, also from the Peach Section, for Pros and Cons, hosted by Nancy Grace, on Court TV. There's also a Wednesday, 12/29/99 ad, in the Peach Section, for "The Mask of Zorro" on TMC, followed by a Thursday, 12/30/99 ad, in the Sports Section, for 24 Hours of Tiger (Woods) on the Golf Channel. And there's a Thursday, 12/30/99 ad, in the Peach Section, for The Jetsons Millennium Celebration on Cartoon Network, followed by a Friday, 12/31/99 ad, in the Peach Section, for Once and Again on Lifetime. Lifetime would rerun the first-run episode than ran on the previous Tuesday, on ABC. This ad was a mistake because there was no episode on ABC that week. There's one addition, scanned from an actual newspaper, to the ToledoVision 5 gallery, a Sunday, 12/26/99 "TV Week" ad for a Great Moments of the 20th Century Marathon, to run, starting at 11:00pm on New Year's Eve. There's one addition, from TV Guide, to the Vintage Cable Ads gallery, a Sunday, 12/26/99 full-page ad, for The Sopranos on HBO (The entire first season. All in one week...). Today's last two ads are additions to the Other Vintage ads gallery, The first one, from TV Guide, is a full-page color ad, for Relenza, with Seinfeld''s Wayne Knight, as "The Flu." The other one, from The Blade, is a Friday, 12/31/99 full-page ad, in the Sports Section, for Buckeye TeleSystem's MaxLINK.
