Well that was the end of Round 10......I have to say I think we did a much better job this time around with this particular holiday topic!!
Now on to the next topic.
The next topic is............................................As Seen on TV
The Arsenio Hall Show (is an American syndicated late-night talk show created by and starring comedian Arsenio Hall. There have been two different incarnations of The Arsenio Hall Show. The original series premiered on January 3, 1989, and ran until May 27, 1994. Nineteen years after the original series left television, Hall returned for a revival that premiered on September 9, 2013 and was cancelled after one season, with the finale airing on May 21, 2014)
Getting a MN reference in early..............
In June 1992, then-presidential candidate Bill Clinton—who was a fan of the show—was a guest on the show, playing "Heartbreak Hotel" on the saxophone (causing Arsenio to quip, "It's nice to see a Democrat blow something besides the election"). The appearance is often considered an important moment in Clinton's political career, helping build his popularity among minority and young voters. Clinton went on to win the election in November 1992.....................
Then Governor Bill Clinton playing sax on The Arsenio Hall in 1992 (one song played is Heartbreak Hotel).
Concentration (is an American television game show based on the children's memory game of the same name. Matching cards represented prizes that contestants could win. As matching pairs of cards were gradually removed from the board, it would slowly reveal elements of a rebus puzzle that contestants had to solve to win a match. The show was broadcast on and off from 1958 to 1991, presented by various hosts, and has been made in several different versions. The original network daytime series, Concentration, appeared on NBC for 14 years, 7 months, and 3,770 telecasts (August 25, 1958 – March 23, 1973), the longest continuous run of any game show on that network (Wheel of Fortune was a month shy of tying that record when the initial NBC run ended on June 30, 1989). This series was hosted by Hugh Downs and later by Bob Clayton, but for a six-month period in 1969, Ed McMahon hosted the series. The series began at 11:30 am Eastern, then moved to 11:00 and finally to 10:30. Nearly all episodes of the NBC daytime version were produced at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York City)
Calling it a night................................
After some reformatting, a remake called Classic Concentration, hosted by Alex Trebek, ran on NBC from May 4, 1987, to September 20, 1991 (with reruns broadcast to January 14, 1994).........................

Following the war, Foyle takes on a new role as a senior intelligence officer, and he focuses his attention on the world of espionage in support of Britain's security and defence.
"Gorilla" Commercial-American Tourister (What better way to prove the durability of a suitcase than to have a gorilla jump all over it? This admirably simple, Clio-winning spot did just that—sort of. The ape was actor Don McLeod in a $20,000 monkey suit (with moving eyebrows). So convincing was his performance, he was soon making appearances as a spokesgorilla. “I’ve met women who thought it would be kinky to have a gorilla up to their hotel room,” McLeod has said. Only if she’s waiting in a suitcase, Don)
