TPIR 1st hour long episode

This episode started the tradition on TPIR that is still being held today.
In 1975 the ratings were so high that fans wanted more so Goodson-Todman gave
it to them.
The show was expanded to a full hour starting on November 3rd 1975.

What a way to start the hour-long shows, a perfect one!

I made a post on the old forums about Alberto and I said he looked like he was embarrased to even be on the show and you can tell.

Let it go, Steve. The clown obviously doesn't read the other replies and he thinks he's right.

We here all know that Price expanded to an hour for good on 11/3/75, moving Give-N-Take to 4 PM. And no one can change that. Document proof (click):
