Flashback Friday - OMG! It's Dr. Ruth!

Well this is something I never thought I'd see again in my lifetime, seriously!!!

Night Flight is excited to announce the addition of sex therapist Dr. Ruth Westheimer's video library to our Night Flight Plus channel. Night Flight Plus is a new streaming channel from the original creator of the cult USA Networks '80s classic Night Flight. Subscribers get access to original Night Flight TV episodes in their airdate form, plus an excellent selection of music documentaries, cult, horror, and more, available on Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV and Online. Like long-lost siblings of 1980s late night TV, Night Flight and Dr. Ruth are together at last with the start of a collection of vintage episodes that are streaming right now.

We're kicking off with an excellent selection of interviews
That's right, we're streaming Dr. Ruth's '80s interviews with celebrities, rock stars and lots of special guests. Dr. Ruth's shows are known for their mix of on-air therapy sessions and candid celebrity interviews. We preserved these 12 episodes in their original format, so you'll get the full Ruth experience. For our first batch, we bring you Jerry Seinfeld, LL Cool J, Burt Reynolds, Anthrax, Gloria Steinem and more... Watch.
An eclectic mix of Dr. Ruth programming from 1984-1992
Our first batch of episodes highlights the diversity of Dr. Ruth's programming. From the very popular mid '80s program "Good Sex with Dr. Ruth," to 1989's teen advice show "What's Up Dr. Ruth," you'll get the feel for Dr Ruth's signature formats and style.
In these episodes, you'll see Ruth answer letters on the air, stage short therapy sessions with troubled couples in studio, and answer phone calls from the TV audience watching at home. There are other surprises now and then too, but you'll just have to watch the episodes to see what happens.
What Dr. Ruth Westheimer did for the conversation around sex in the '80s broke the mold and had a real social impact while being wildly entertaining. We're honored to help preserve this legacy. Start watching tonight!
