 i've got so much accumulated junk, I only have time to keep certain pages. Pull outs of new season line ups...that get thrown away after the first two weeks when the lineup gets revamped anyway.  Or, pictures or recipes now and again.
  Do you remember the mini series Wild Palms?(I believe that was its name)  I think it was early 90s. Maybe 91, it was on for 4 nights on I think about 10pm on CBS?OR ABC?   well, I kept the articles and reviews of that. It was crazy and as sci-fi as Coppola or Whomever was responsible had gone up to that point on any tv show or mini movie.  
All I remember is I was hooked to the series because I wanted to see where the story went, but I probably should have been asleep--high school can be dangerous if a person lacks sleep.

I actually did collect a couple of TV Guides that celebrated 35 years of Star Trek a couple years ago :)

I don't but I can understand the fascination of keeping a couple that reminded you of what's on when you had so much to do, you never watched telly anyway.

We were too poor to get the real ones so I had to collect the ones out of the newspaper.

I have a complete set for the 1980s... 1980-1989 plus a good portion of the 90s, though I want to get rid of most of the 90s stuff.  The oldest issue I have is #18 or so, with "You Bet Your Life's" Groucho Marx on the cover.  

I completed the 80s collection, mostly because I wanted to have a resource for researching 80s television shows (beyond the simple bios that exist in most TV books).  I've never really done anything with them (besided create my Saturday morning TV schedules), and they take up an enormous amount of room, so I should probably dump them on ebay or something. I don't know if they're available on microfiche or not, but that would probably be all I really need.

Yes, but only those that come out in September of each year, that tell what new programs are going to be on television for that upcoming season, but I have those going all the way back to the '60's.

I used to have a stamp collection, but I don't collect TV guides.
No, I'm truly sad. I collect spoons. :P

In 1980, as a 6th-grader, I used to get TV Guides and they were so thin you could staple them together! I stapled 4 of them together before I couldn't staple them anymore! That's why I gave up after I got 5 of them, because I couldn't staple them all. They went for 35 each back then!
In 1984 I tried to collect them, but that didn't last too long either. I think I was mostly buying them because of the chicks on the covers - Valerie Bertinell, Brooke Shields, and Crystal Gayle were my favorite covers of that time. But let me get out of this before I get too embarrassed.
Then came 1987-88, and the half-year subscription I had. I wrote funny things in them. I put comic balloons over the people and had them "saying" funny things. I would goof off with the crosswords, too. Like when one of the words was "_____ Kazan", I put "Alek". (Ouch!)
In the past few years, I've bought a handful of TV Guides from an antique store and a flea market. They range from 1961-71. I have those in a drawer. I had a lot of the 87-88's and a few 84's in a plastic grocery bag, but I don't know where that went.

Maybe you could get two and staple the top-left corners together. Then you put another on top and staple the bottom-left corners of only that one and the one below it. Then you put another one on top of that and staple the top-left corners of that one and the one below it so you end up with a concertina-ed pile of the things.
