For over 50 years, we have watched as television has entertained, informed, comforted, and thrilled us. We watched as sitcoms evolved from I Love Lucy to All in the Family: at first merely amusing, then becoming reflections of society and pushing the cultural boundaries.

A very informational book about the history of TV. I learned things about TV's shows, networks and channels that I never even considered before. All in all, I did enjoy it... but I felt that it was just a little on the cheesy side.

This was interesting. My biggest complaint with this book is with the accessories. It comes with 2 CDs and a DVD. Hosted by Dick Van Dyke, Walter Cronkite, and Bob Costas. I listened to each "chapter" on the CDs as I read each in the book. Obviously seeing them would have been nicer. Little did I realize that the CDs were nothing more than the audio track from the DVD. So by the time I got to the DVD... it was old news. It was hard to listen to all the commentary again even though I wanted to se ...more

A great collection of stories and clips regarding the most remarkable moments in entertainment ("I Love Lucy," "MASH: Goodbye, Farewell, and Amen"), sports ('72 Munich Olympics, "Monday Night Football"), and news (Kennedy/Nixon Debate, Apollo 11, Fall of the Berlin Wall) from over 50 years of television. Book includes DVD and CDs featuring clips and interviews with stars, writers, and other "behind the scenes" talent.

Growing up with television, a lot of these television events were familiar to me (even if they had occurred before my time). My version, though, did not come with the DVD -- I had picked it up in a bargain-bin for a dollar, so it seemed like a good deal at the time ... well, until I actually read the book and didn't get the full experience. A higher rating with DVD probably.

Television has dominated so much of modern American culture. This book does a good job of documenting and discussing some of the biggest moments caught on the tube. I especially enjoyed the part about the Nixon/Kennedy debate.

I feel like television will end up taking a back seat to the internet if it hasn't already.

I enjoyed this book and the icing on the cake is that it also comes with a DVD of clips or the events. Many of them were before I was born so it was kind of cool to see them. Examples: the moon landing, Hedi Bowl etc.
