In 1987 the new cartoon The Real Ghostbusters was an instant hit, with an instantly thick number of episodes (78 before Season 2 even began). ABC, for once, had the hottest show on Saturday Morning.

How TV Guide Influenced Your Parents

In 1991, TV Guide started publishing issues twice a year devoted to helping parents decide what programs their kids should be watching. A committee of child psychologists would overanalyze each show, looking for any trace of harmful content.

The Megaphone Effect

One of the biggest rules for gaining an audience is not to underestimate it. Nobody wants to be talked down to on television, so why should the opposite be true about advertising? It seems that there can never be such a thing as too much marketing, and that there is a direct correlation between ads […]
