Here is Commercial Break #5 during The Day After on WLS Channel 7 - an ABC Theater telemovie about the effects of a full-scale nuclear attack on the United States. Technically, this aired immediately after the movie ended. No sponsor wanted to buy ad time after the bombs were dropped, so there were no commercial breaks or interruptions for a full hour and 19 minutes! (until this) Includes:
