CINEMATICOLOGY Snarks the Small Screen: Fall TV Promos

CBS unveiled a Sunday-evening line-up of returning shows 60 Minutes and Murder, She Wrote, followed by a new action/adventure series title E.A.R.T.H. Force, which follows the assignments of a team of ecological activists fighting threats to the environment.

Got ready for CBS' 1990-1991 line-up?

A vintage NBC promo from 1990.

ABC's Home Improvement debuted in 1991 and was broadcast by the Alphabet Network for nine seasons.
A pre-Last Man Standing Tim Allen starred in the Tuesday night hit family comedy produced by Wind Dancer Productions in association with ABC Studios.

Single guys loved The Single Guy so much, NBC viewers watched him on-screen.

Chuck Woolery, composer of hit ballads for Ray Price and Tammy Wynette and the predecessor Wheel of Fortune co-host to Pat Sajak, hosted his own ill-fated daytime talk show.

SMILE! You're on Candid Camera!

The stars were back on NBC as the Peacock Network promoted their entire 1993-1994 line-up of new and returning series.

FOX kicked the tires in 1994, and the network's 1994-1995 roster of new and returning series television programming made the 25-year-old broadcaster the leader in ratings and renewals of existing fare.

Kids' WB! was the WB's Saturday morning answer to Disney's One Saturday Morning programming line-up.

Jenna and Thomas were Dharma & Greg in the groundbreaking ABC comedy from a pre-Two and a Half Men Chuck Lorre.
