Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0140249168, Paperback)

If you're a fan or student of American TV, you must have this book, which provides descriptions of 5,400 series and their major participants from 1948 to 1995. The information is presented in alphabetical order in entries up to several pages long. Special broadcasts are also listed chronologically in an appendix. Thankfully, the index is comprehensive, so you can easily trace the mayfly-like flitting of stars, personalities, and lesser deities from show to show. And, I don't usually say this, but it's really a heck of a bargain.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:10:19 -0400)

CD-ROM includes live action video, photos, trivia game, interactive TV history timeline, and a searchable database.
