There is no denying the influence television has had on Americans over the past 50 years. This volume is a celebration of the medium as well as a fact-filled reference. It provides a historical guide to the programmes, personalities and practices of network television from its early days to the end of the 20th century. From game shows to nightly news, from sitcoms to serious dramas and everything inbetween, more than 1000 entries provide story synopses, biographies, production histories, air dates and more. Also featured are two appendixes - the top-rated programmes from 1952-1999 and the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Annual Emmy Award winners from the second half of the 20th century.
