LATE-NIGHT LORE

After David Letterman moved from NBC late night to CBS in 1993, NBC refused to allow him to take his most famous comedy bits with him, claiming they were the network’s intellectual property. Instead of dropping the bits, Letterman and his staff simply renamed them:

* Viewer Mail became the CBS Mailbag.

* Paul Shaffer and the World’s Most Dangerous Band became the CBS Orchestra starring Paul Shaffer.

* The Top Ten List became The Late Show Top Ten List.

* The recurring character Larry “Bud” Melman used his real name, Calvert DeForest.


Do not eat: The glass front of a standard TV is actually leaded crystal, containing about 2% lead.

What catchy new name did the American Family Life Assurance Company adopt in 1992?

Aflac, which is an acronym of its old name. Founded in 1955, the company became widely known under its new name through TV commercials featuring an “Aflac”-quacking, insurance-hawking duck. (I do love that duck!!)

Tuesday TV Trivia

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

OOPS!
In March 2001, Nick at Nite aired the 1983 Three’s Company episode “The Charming Stranger,” as it had done dozens of times before. This time, an eagle-eyed viewer called the network to alert them to something that nobody had noticed before: Star John Ritter’s private parts were visible—for about a second—through the bottom of a pair of boxer shorts. Ever since, the episode has aired with the offending footage deleted. When Ritter heard about the incident, he quipped to The New York Observer, “I’ve requested they air both versions, edited and unedited, because sometimes you feel like a nut, and sometimes you don’t.”

Monday Assortment

Monday, March 11, 2013

A man went into the 25th-floor lounge at a high-rise hotel to admire the view. He saw another man take a pill with a drink, walk to the window, and jump out. The man flew around for a minute and then zipped back into the bar. As the amazed newcomer watched, the man did this flying routine twice more. Finally, the newcomer asked the flying man if he could try one of his pills. The flier said it was his last one. The man offered to pay $500 for it, to no avail. So he offered $1,000. The flier reluctantly agreed, took the money, surrendered the pill, and turned back to his drink. The man took the pill, went to the window, and jumped out. He fell to his death 25 stories below. The bartender said to the flier, “You’re such a jerk when you’re drunk, Superman.”

FROM TV: I Love Lucy was the #1 show on television for four years in the 1950s. It was so popular that it drove many people to buy their first television.

TO RADIO: Producers thought a radio version would be an easy—and cheap—way to gain a larger audience. So they took the audio from a Lucy episode in 1952 and called it a pilot for a radio series. Ultimately, CBS Radio decided against airing it. (Bonus fact: I Love Lucy was itself inspired by a radio comedy called My Favorite Husband, starring Lucille Ball.)


Add the ads: In 1960, an hour-long show had about 9 minutes of commercial breaks. In 2010, about 18. (Yeah, and they get louder and louder every day!!)

HELP ! My sides are hurting !


Well, ads ARE annoying
But, since I am a cheap-skate,
they DO - I HOPE ! - keep
prices down

?? Wonder what will come out
of the lawsuit filed against
DISH from advertizers
because DISH users can
omit their commercials ??



Have a Terrific Tuesday !
