    Now we know that this special was funded by an outside company and not PBS and because of that PBS has no record of it.

    Now I found out from IMDb.com and other sites that it aired on 2/14/86. I bought a TV Guide. It’s the Long iIsland Metro edition. It covers NYC (the number 1 media market in the world). At the time, the NYC area had FIVE PBS stations (No joke). I can vouch for this because I lived in Northern NJ at the time (Bergen County just one hour away from New York.) The PBS Stations we’re:

    WNET Channel 13
    WLIW Channel 21
    WNYE Channel 25 (Now a non commercial independent station. No longer affiliated with PBS.)
    The future WPXN Channel 31 (Now an ION station)
    The future WNJN Channel 50

    Here’s the listings and there is no special. Maybe it aired somewhere else.

    Do you suspect it was a Psy-Op?

    I'm just wondering what you are thinking about the missing special.

    Thanks. I’m thinking maybe this special if it did air, they talked about when exactly these two blunders aired and maybe they showed them. The first one is when Art Carney peeled an orange just to buy time when Audrey had to get Gleason to cone back in stage (Jackie thought he had more time so he was apparently looking for something to wipe his sweaty brow.) The second one is when Art had to climb through a window because the door was jammed.
