Day and Date (also titled Day & Date) was a daily hour-long syndicated program in the 1990s. It was syndicated by Group W Productions (which would change its name to Eyemark Entertainment following the merger of Group W with the CBS television network) in 1996. It was hosted by Dana King and Patrick Vanhorn. The program was intended as a lead-in to local early news programs.
It debuted on September 11, 1995 for the start of the 1995 television season. It was picked up by a variety of stations, some of which had just switched to CBS following deals that had taken effect earlier in 1995 (or, in some cases, the day before) resulting from the U.S. television network affiliate switches of 1994. Segments combined news, talk, and entertainment issues. Toward the end of its run, Gordon Elliott joined as an occasional correspondent. Its second season premiered on 9 September 1996 on 87 stations serving 74 percent of the country, but low ratings (a 1.6 for the second season) spurred Eyemark to cancel Day and Date effective January 3, 1997. Local newscasts themselves had also made the program superfluous with the growth of syndicated and wire service segments featuring the same type of content in the same timeslots Day and Date were in, with much less expense with local staff than that of a syndicated show.
