Down The TV Wormhole

Vulture's Joe Adalian has been browsing through YouTube looking for clips from TV shows that are better off forgotten, and found "five videos that make the eighties and nineties feel like a fever dream." Among them: Playboy's Roller Disco & Pajama Party (aired on ABC in 1979 when it proudly held the title of The Jiggle Network), Alec Baldwin as the center square on "Hollywood Squares," and a promo for an NBC anti-drug special with a ridiculous list of stars plus "the singing of Dr. J and Magic Johnson and lessons in life for the kids from Burt Reynolds." Take a look.
