In 1996, After 12 years, amateur detective Jessica Beatrice Fletcher solves her final weekly mystery on CBS' “Murder She Wrote.” With their final plot, the showʹs writers take a none-too-subtle dig at CBS (which slammed the mystery series opposite “Friends” in its final season). In “Death by Demographics,” a radio promoter is killed when he changes his stationʹs format from classical music to hard rock.

In 1996, In an astronomical near hit, a large asteroid approached Earth within 281,000 miles, a distance just greater than the moon, in a surprise to astronomers who discovered it in midweek.

In 1996, In The Simpsonʹs episode, “HOMERPALOOZA”, to convince his kids that heʹs cool, Homer takes them to Hullabalooza, a touring rock concert/freak show that features Cypress Hill and offers the chance to “Bungee Jump Against Racism.” When a cannon accidentally discharges into Homerʹs ample midsection and causes no damage, the crowd pronounces him hip. Even though Smashing Pumpkins and Sonic Youth also appear in this episode, itʹs not about Generation X; itʹs about the classic tough relationship between fathers and sons and what one will do to be a hero to the other.

In 1997, On the thrilling cliffhanger season finale of “Melrose Place” — Peter is saved from lobotomy (or is he?), Kimberly goes into a coma, Amanda marries Peter in a jailhouse ceremony, Matt gets addicted to speed, Richard almost gets killed by Jane and Sydney, but once buried, his hand pops up from beyond the grave as the credits roll.

The previous record-opening for a Wednesday was $17.4 million, set by “Independence Day” in 1996. Over the Friday — Sunday weekend, it grossed $64.8 million Friday through Sunday, short of the $72.1 million for Steven Spielbergʹs dinosaurs over the Memorial Day weekend in 1997. It set records with a five-day gross of $105.7 million and with a $28.5 million opening day. It also became the fastest movie to break the $100 million barrier, in just five days. It also topped the $200 million mark in a record 13 days and $300 million in 20 days!

In 2000, Daytime Emmys elude Regis again as Regis Philbin has apparently caught the curse of Susan Lucci, the actress who went zero-for-18 before winning a Daytime Emmy the previous year. At the 27th annual ceremony, Philbin lost his eighth try for the talk-show trophy for Live! With Regis and Kathie Lee. Philbin also lost the award for best game-show host for “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire”. ABCʹs Millionaire did win the award for best game show; the multinight show competes in the Daytime Emmys because there is no game category in the more prestigious Primetime Emmy Awards.
