List of TV Guide covers

This is a portal to a series of articles listing the many issue covers of TV Guide magazine since its national launch in the spring of 1953. The articles are separated by decades:

These articles are for the regular weekly issues of TV Guide, and do not include any one-time-only special issues. The lists include covers that are national or regional in nature, as well as any covers that were available exclusively to subscribers. The Canadian edition of TV Guide featured mostly the same covers until it separated into its own publication in the 1980s; those covers are not included.
