Someone found a tape from September 7, 1990 featuring various shows including The Price is Right, The Noozles, Think Fast, and Double Dare.  Better (or worse…) the commercials.  Full 4 hours, it is a great way to see how far we’ve come with our tastes and expectations in some ways, and how we have hardly progressed in others.  If you haven’t got time now, bookmark this page.
