January’s Most Popular

The new year is already a month old. Hard to believe. Here are the ten most popular Television Obscurities articles, exhibits and video files for January of 2009. As always, these numbers can be easily skewed if another website links to a specific article at Television Obscurities and sends a huge amount of traffic to that particular article.

Five Most Popular Exhibits – January 2009

Famous Faces Do Commercials
Network Television Promotion
Computer Commercials, 1984-1994

Full Issue of 1951 TV News
TV Guide – Behind the Scenes of the 1964-1965 Season

I’ve decided to start listing the top five exhibits each month. There are currently six and by process of elimination we learn that The New People Comic Books is the least popular exhibit. I find that a little surprising. I am also surprised at how popular my latest exhibit, Computer Commercials, 1984-1994, turned out to be, ranking third this month.

  1. I’m a bit of a latecomer to your site. Looking over what you’ve got in your vault, my eye was caught by the 1951 issue of TV News for Buffalo-Rochester. I wasn’t surprised to see that TV News looked almost exactly like TV Forecast, our local magazine here in Chicago. The layout and design were identical: the emphasis was on local shows,as befit the times, but the pictures and stories of national stars were nearly the same. This reflects the loose networking that went on with local TV magazines at that time – which made it easier for Walter Annenberg to buy them all up in ’53 to use as the foundation for the national TV Guide. Anyway, it’s good to know that I’m not the only one who hangs on to this stuff…
