Friday TV Trivia

Friday, February 01, 2013

IT’S SWEEPS MONTH!
During sweeps periods—the months of February, May, July, and November—the networks release new series, special episodes, etc., because those are the times when people across the country fill out “ratings diaries,” recording what TV shows they watch, for the Nielsen Company. Getting good ratings during a Sweeps Week means networks can charge more for advertising. In the first Sweeps Week in 1954, the ratings diaries were collected in a “sweep” of the country from east to west—hence the name.

The phrase “I’m not a doctor, but I play one on TV” was first said in a 1986 aspirin commercial.

One of life's mysteries is how a 2 pound box of candy can make you gain 5 pounds.

It's bad to suppress laughter. It goes back down and spreads to your hips.

Wednesday wit

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

At 3:00 am, the young wife shook her husband awake, telling him to check the baby. He sat up for a full minute listening, then protested, "But I don't hear her crying."

"I know" she replied, "And it's your turn to go see why not!"

Monday's Assortment

Monday, January 28, 2013

A guy walked into a bar, stopping and talking to everyone as he made his way over to the bartender. When he finished with each group of people, they all left and went to stand outside the window, peering in. Finally, the bar was empty except for the guy and the bartender. The man walked up to the bartender and said, “I bet you $1,000 that I can spray beer from my mouth into a shot glass thirty feet away and get all the beer in the glass.” The bartender thought the guy was insane, but he wanted the $1,000, so he accepted the bet. The bartender got out a shot glass, paced off 30 feet, and the contest began. The man spit beer all over the bar. It didn’t even touch the shot glass. When he was done, the bartender looked at him and said, “Well, I guess you owe me $1,000, huh?”
“Yeah,” the man answered, “but I can afford it, because I bet all those people outside $500 each that I could come in here and spray beer all over the bar without your stopping me.”

TV Trivia

Melba (1986)
Melba Moore was a Broadway star in the ’60s and ’70s, appearing in the original cast of Hair, winning a Tony Award for her performance in Purlie, and scoring a string of hits on the soul chart like “You Stepped into My Life” and “Love’s Comin’ at Ya.” She was a popular entertainer in the African-American community, so CBS developed Melba, a sitcom in which Moore played the head of a middle-class black family. CBS debuted the show on January 28, 1986 … which happened to be the same day that the Challenger space shuttle exploded, killing everyone on board. Not surprisingly, shell-shocked viewers tuned into the news coverage of the tragedy on the other networks. Ratings for Melba were so low that CBS canceled the show the next day. The network gave it another chance in August 1986, airing a repeat of the first episode. That showing did even worse: At the time, it was the least-watched show in CBS history.


Three versions of the Davy Crockett theme song hit the top ten in 1955, almost simultaneously.
