WPWR Channel 50 - Nanny And The Professor - "1-900 Hall of Shame" (Opening & Break, 1991)
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.

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