That's correct, the Sunday Advertiser had TVue magazine, with your lucky number on the cover every week.  The Globe had TV Week, and the Herald Traveler had something but I don't remember the name.  Now the Sunday Globe has a half page of that night's listings.  They tried to get rid of that a few weeks ago, but I guess they got too many complaints.

I found an old Herald from 2002's shocking how much less there is to it these days.  Not just fewer ads now, but a lot less content.  Far fewer stories, reporters, and columnists.  Only the sports section is comparable today.
