In 1892, producer Hal Roach was born. He founded the Hal Roach Studios and directed such early films as “One Million B.C.,” “Road Show” and “The Devilʹs Brother.” He also produced all the “Our Gang” comedies of the 1930s which, decades later, aired on TV under the title “The Little Rascals.” Roach died on November 2, 1992.

In 1952, NBCʹs “Today,” the program that started the morning news show format as we know it, premiered. The show, which was hosted by Dave Garroway, was segmented with bits and pieces of news, sports, weather and interviews. The addition of J. Fred Muggs the chimpanzee pushed ratings even higher.

In 1955, The Donald Duck film, “No Hunting” is released.

In 1956, Rock ʹnʹ roller, Little Richard, was singing the newly released, “Tutti-Frutti”, on this day. So, you think this was the hit version, huh? Not so, bubblegum brain…Within months, the Pat Boone version became even more popular as a cover record.

In 1966, David Jones changed his last name to Bowie to avoid confusion with Davy Jones from the Monkees so when he puts out his first single, “The Laughing Gnome,” people wonʹt think itʹs a Monkees solo record. Maybe he should have thought twice about the whole thing.

In 1967, on the cover of TV Guide: “Art Carney”. Other Articles: Dom DeLuise, Pistols n' Petticoats

In 1972, Comedian Red Foxx, whose last name was really Sanford, debuted on NBC-TV this night in: “Sanford and Son”. Demond Wilson starred as Fred Sanfordʹs son. Quincy Jones composed the catchy theme song. Sure thereʹs a lot of junk on TV, but the junk on NBCʹs “Sanford and Son” is funny.

In 1972, in a Brady Bunch episode called “Dough Re Mi”, Greg dreams of getting rich with a song he wrote, but needs $150 to pay for the recording session, Peter suggests that the six Brady children do the vocal since family groups are so successful, and that they share the costs. The plan goes sour when Peterʹs voice changes and they canʹt reset the recording date. In the episode the Brady Bunch kids sing two original songs, “Time to Change” and “We Can Make the World a Whole Lot Brighter.” Editorʹs note: D.T. taped the audio portion on his old tape machine when it was rerun in July, and ironically enough, itʹs still there!

In 1990, “The Simpsons”, spun-off from The Tracey Ullman Show (debuting with a series of in-between sketch shorts on April 19, 1987), first aired as a special on Fox on December 19, 1989, and on this date, it began airing as a series. The animated series, created by Matt Groening, author of “Life in Hell”, featured the wacky family consisting of Homer and Marge Simpson and their three offspring: Bart, Lisa and Maggie.

In 1993, NBC and CBS announce their new late night hosts at separate news conferences; talk show host David Letterman announced he was moving from NBC after 11 years to sign a $16 million deal with CBS. Letterman was mad because NBC did not make him Johnny Carsonʹs successor on “The Tonight Show”.

In 1993, David Letterman accepted a multimillion-dollar deal to move his late night talk show to CBS in August after his NBC contract expires. By the end of August, early risers including no-lifer David Tanny would need to program TWO VCRʹs just to catch both Leno and Letterman on opposite networks! During a taping of his talk show, David Letterman told his studio audience that his last show for NBC would be in June. Letterman had wanted an 11:30 p.m. time slot, but NBC would not remove Jay Leno as host of “The Tonight Show.”
