In 1873, P T Barnumʹs circus, “Greatest Show on Earth,” debuts (New York City).

In 1931, W2XB TV channel one in New York City, New York, (NBC) begins broadcasting. See, there was once a channel one.

In 1938, The H.G. Wells play “The War of the Worlds,” starring Orson Welles, was broadcast on CBS radioʹs “Mercury Theater.” The live drama, which employed fake news reports that interrupted musical selections, panicked some listeners who missed the opening minutes of the broadcast and thus thought its portrayal of a Martian invasion at Princeton, New Jersey, was true — despite several subsequent on-air disclaimers telling them it was a fictional drama. Frightened citizens rushed out of their homes with handkerchiefs covering their mouths to guard against “Martian gas,” clogged telephone lines, caused traffic jams on highways while trying to flee, and checked into local hospitals in shock. A 1975 made-for-TV movie, “The Night That Panicked America,” related the story of Wellesʹ famous 1938 Halloween Eve radio broadcast and the real-life hysteria that ensued.

In 1973, A New York radio station aired the unedited “Seven Words You Cnnot Say on Television” off Geroge Carlinʹs LP “Class Clown.” A man complained about the offensive words and complained to the FCC. The FCC essentially put the station on “probation” with the threat of considering revoking its license if the station airs any more offensive material.

In 1976, Jane Pauley becomes news co-anchor of the Today Show. She looks strikingly similar to Jane Curtin, who, conincidentally enough, would be a replacement for the departed Chevy Chase to anchor the Weekend Update feature on NBCʹs Saturday Night (retroactively titled Saturday Night Live.)

In 1978, “WKRP in Cincinnati” TV shows traditionally greet holidays with a hug, but not WKRP. In “Turkeys Away,” which was based on a true story, station manager Arthur Carlson (Gordon Jump) announces plans to unveil a secret promotional event, and newsman Les Nessman (Richard Sanders) shows up at the local mall to cover it live. A helicopter comes into view. Mr. Carlson is aboard. So are 20 live turkeys — which, to Lesʹs horror, are hurled to their deaths. “Oh, the humanity,” Les wails, evoking the Hindenberg while fowl balls plummet to the parking lot. Mr. Carlson is shocked. “As God is my witness,” he says, “I thought turkeys could fly.”

In 1980, “Itʹs A Living (1980 version)”, TV Comedy, aka Making a Living, debut on ABC. It was a sitcom about waitresses in a tony Los Angeles eatery. The stars are Marian Mercer, Ann Jillian and Susan Sullivan. The show will run for two years on ABC, then return as a syndicated show from 1985 to 1989.

In 1991, “Seinfeld” In this series that set the TV industry on its ear by boasting, proudly and subversively, that it was “about nothing,” “The Parking Garage” is the ultimate nothing episode. Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer canʹt find their car in a mall parking garage and walk around looking for it. Thatʹs it. But weʹve come to know the idiosyncrasies and neuroses of these characters so well that we enjoy seeing them splash down in the shallow pond of a minor dilemma and sink to the bottom, while arguing about the best stroke to use to get to shore. Itʹs theater of the absurd: “Four Characters in Search of an Exit Ramp.” The whole requires REMarkable writing and acting, and a pact with the audience never to take anything too seriously. Thatʹs not nothing — thatʹs everything.

In 1993, R.C., “Weird Al” Yankovicʹs album “Alapalooza” peaked at #46 on the Billboard album chart

Less than two hours previously, while en route to his sonʹs home, Allen had been involved in a minor car accident when a Lexus SUV backed out of a driveway into the side of Allenʹs car.
