44. It says Schindler's List was sponsored by Ford
"The first time ABC aired Saving Private Ryan, it did so sans commercials thanks to a sponsorship deal with Ford. The automaker struck a similar deal backing NBC's broadcast of Schindler's List." This is from the Variety article I posted above.

It also mentions in that article that the last time ABC did it was when they showed the Concert for 9/11. I don't know if that really counts because all the networks were doing that, weren't they?
