Our local version of this was called “TV Week”. The V and the W were so tightly kerned, we always called it “TWeek”. I still remember a couple of gems from the TWeek listings:

8:00pm - Movie - “I Killed Rasputin”. The story of the man who killed Rasputin.

8:00pm -Movie -“The Outlaw Josie Wales”. Clint Eastwood kills some men.


Whoa, spoiler alert on that pic from 2001!

While I can’t claim to remember that particular illustration, I recognized that artist and that typeface and style INSTANTLY.

I grew up on Long Island and DELIVERED Newsday!

The TV book is one of the few things I remember well about Sunday Newsday. Strange wide format. I recall pouring through it as a tween, desperately trying to find Science Fiction shows and movies. They were pretty rare back then.
