The Current Season of the Television Show

The final season with Hattie and Bruce

With the close of the 1500 Season -- Small Business School will stop feeding the monster.   Every week since September 3, 1994, the next episode of the show would have to be fed to the satellite at 4:30 PM on Saturday.

That was the old model.

The new model will hopefully begin in July 2008 with new episodes of the show that are developed in conjunction with local stations and the best of these episodes are vetted by each station's programming director for the national and global feeds.

To learn more, ask Bruce.
