NB Production Blows Up Mercedes (February 13, 1998)
At a vacant lot at the intersection Jackson and Kearny streets in San
Francisco, the NB crew blew up a Mercedes-Benz on February 11. The car blew
apart in a fire ball, apparently a little more ferociously than anticipated.
A mangled car door ended up on the sidewalk near spectators, but no one was
Pictures of the explosion made the local news here, oddly enough on the
rival ABC affiliate KGO here. They jokingly quipped "Now that you've seen it
here, there's no reason to watch it on that other channel."

answering them. Ha ha hah.
The ET piece ended with the news that NASH BRIDGES will return in March, having been totally pre-empted during the February sweeps by the Winter Olympics.
Don on Blooper's 98 (February 8, 1998)
In that scintillating Dick Clark production of rehash TV - BLOOPERS '98
(airing February 7), a very, very young Don Johnson appears on THE DATING
GAME as Bachelor No. 1. Don describes himself immodestly as handsome and
attractive to the inquiring bachelorette. The young Don looks very mod and

guess that Don Johnson magic wasn't so finely tuned in those days.
