Cigarette Television Advertising: Nicotine Marketing is the marketing of nicotine-containing products or use. Traditionally, the tobacco industry markets cigarette smoking, but it is increasingly marketing other products, such as electronic cigarettes and heated tobacco products. On December 31, 1970, the last cigarette commercial aired at a few minutes to midnight during Johnny Carson's Tonight Show, a Virginia Slims ad ending with the words "Regular or King size" spoken by Dan Ingram. The following day, January 1, 1971, Cigarette advertisements were banned on radio and TV in the U.S. due to legislation signed into law on April 1st, 1970 (April Fool's Day) by President Richard Nixon. The tobacco industry was a huge advertising category, spending more than 150M USD on television (1BM USD in 2019 dollars). The loss of that revenue was crippling to the big three networks, and in order to make up for the lost income, they introduced the 30-second commercial ("30s"), which were less expensive to produce and buy than 60s. These cheaper commercials attracted a whole new category - and revenue pool - of smaller sponsors to network television. From this point on, the 30-second commercial would become the standard of advertising time.
