Today in History

In 1997, ABC aired the "coming out" episode of the sitcom Ellen, in which the title character, played by Ellen DeGeneres, admitted she is a lesbian.

In 1964, the FCC stated that all TV receivers should be equipped to receive both VHF (channels 2-13) and the new UHF (channels 14-83). As a result, TV dealers scrambled to unload their VHF-only models as fast as possible. Antenna manufacturers were kept busy, as the new UHF receivers required new antennas too.
