The fifteenth hour of the 25th anniversary of viewer calls focused on the year 1994 and on the shift to Republican Party control of Congress. Guests talked about the impact of the Republican takeover on the American political landscape, the role partisan politics had played in public policy making, changes in the electorate, and current political issues. They also responded to questions and comments from viewers. 

An interview with 25th anniversary essay contest finalist Dain Pascocello of Hopewell Junction, N.Y., as well as several clips from prior programming were aired. 

The program was part of a 25-hour call-in marathon commemorating 25 years of viewer calls that began with television’s first-ever, regularly scheduled, national viewer call-in program on October 7, 1980, when the 19-month-old network televised a live viewer call-in program from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. close
