Could episodes of Fashion Discoveries in Television have aired on WPTZ in Philadelphia in addition to WNBT in New York City in the fall of 1941?
My latest spotlight is about Fashion Discoveries on Television, a short-lived series from 1941 that aired for just three weeks on WNBT in New York City.
Fashion Discoveries in Television was one of the earliest sponsored weekly TV series, premiering in September 1941. Although intended to air for 13 weeks on WNBT in New York City, ultimately only three episodes were broadcast.
Schedule for NBC’s commercial station WNBT in New York City for the week starting Sunday, September 21st, 1941.

Believe it or not there were television programs in 1941, including some that included commercials, primarily on stations in New York City.
