Here is the opening to an airing of Nanny and the Professor (presenting the episode "The Astronomers") on WPWR Channel 50 and the commercial break that follows, with a sequence of hilariously bad and over-the-top 1-900 phone line commercials - each one more cheesy than the last.

Includes:

WPWR Star Trek: The Next Generation bumper promo (ending voiceover by ??)

Opening to Nanny and the Professor

Girl's Talk - 1-900-230-1700 ($2 per minute; from Palace Communications)

Room Mates - 1-900-737-2233 ($3 per minute, 12 minutes minimum!)

1-900-250-8888 ($5 first minute, $1 each additional minute; from UCI Entertainment - 16530 Ventura Boulevard, Encino, CA. 91436)

1-900-FUN-MATE ($9.95 per call; from Telcor, Inc.)

Opening of Nanny and the Professor - "The Astronomers"

Ah, it was during the golden age of 1-900 numbers. Enjoy the irony of the juxtaposition. :-)

Now, who are they targeting this show to at 2 in the morning? Who are they targeting these commercials to? How in the world could ever the twain meet? ;-)

"Call me...please..."

This aired on local Chicago TV early Saturday, June 22nd 1991 at 2am.
