The Phil Donahue Show

"Clean Up TV" Campaign (February 16, 1981) - Here is another classic episode of Donahue from 1981, featuring John Hurt of the "Clean Up TV" campaign which exploits the weaknesses in television from poor quality to violence to offensiveness. This is an interesting perspective considering that from a contemporary standpoint, most of these programs are deemed as classics (though Saturday Night Live was having a bad season and most still think of 3's A Crowd as one of the worst game shows of all-time).
