Hi There, Boys and Girls!
Tim Hollis

Nov 2001
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
From the earliest days of television until the mid-1970s, children's programming was a staple of local TV broadcasting in the United States. Here, Hollis (Dixie Before Disney) presents a comprehensive compendium of information about local children's TV shows, organized by state. Capsule descriptions are provided for individual programs and hosts in major TV markets within each state. Hollis cuts off the scope of his book at the 1970s, when, for a variety of reasons, most local children's TV programming in the United States simply ceased to exist. This valuable and unique reference book has only one drawback: some markets either could not or would not cooperate with the author to provide historical information on shows, so some entries are much shorter than others. Hollis's preface summarizes this often ...

Seven Seasons of Buffy: Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Discuss Their Favorite Television Show
Glenn Yeffeth (Editor), Drew Goddard (Introduction)
1932100083
September 3, 2003
Paperback
·
 
From School Library Journal
Adult/High School--In the foreword to this collection of 22 essays, scriptwriter Drew Goddard asks, "Why do we care so muchabout Buffy?" After some false but mercifully brief starts, the book hits its stride with a succession of passionate, articulate, entertaining, informative, and sometimes-humorous pieces by professional writers who have no inhibitions about explaining what they love about the show--and what they hate. Varying widely in attitude and style, chapters analyze the show's literary qualities from a number of perspectives; delve into its "meaning" through its themes of love and growth; look closely at the dark side of the "Buffyverse" and the complexity of its moral structure; and argue the relative merits of its characters and episodes. Kevin Andrew Murphy's fittingly titled "Unseen Horrors and...

Book Description
Television talk shows are a recent phenomenon, but their roots go back to the itinerant circuses and religious revivals of the nineteenth century. Circuses made their money by displaying "freaks," just as talk shows emphasize only the deviant aspects of their guests’ lives. And like the revivalists of old, talk show hosts attempt to convert their guests to a religion that has the power to heal. Guests who have been victimized give witness to the pain and suffering they have endured at the hands of their victimizers. Salvational talk shows build to a moment of conversion, when victimizers see the error of their ways and choose to convert. The hosts, victims, and relationship experts each play their part in the conversion drama that unfolds daily over the airways. This book questions the religion of recovery,...


I'll Be Right Back : Memories of TV's Greatest Talk Show
Mike Douglas
0684854376


·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Nationally syndicated within two years of its debut in 1961, singer Mike Douglas's 90-minute daily talk show became an entertainment phenomenon by booking contrasting personalities on the same show, including such offbeat musical duos as Arlo Guthrie and Florence Henderson. In 1967, The Mike Douglas Show was the first syndicated talk show to win an Emmy, and Douglas became the first TV star to earn a million dollars a year. Unwittingly pinpointing this book's central flaw, Douglas comments, "I could fill this chapter with just the names of quality musical talents who graced our stage and still not have room for half of them." Since more than 30,000 guests were booked on his show over more than 20 years, including then-unknowns Jay Leno, Billy Crystal, Barbra Streisand and Bill Cosby, it's easy to see why. Marlon...

The Money Shot

From Publishers Weekly
An assistant sociology professor at the University of California at Davis, Grindstaff draws on the language of pornography in analyzing the sometimes steamy and mostly conflict-driven realm of TV talk shows. In porn films, "the money shot" is the moment of male orgasm, and Grindstaff successfully argues that shows like Jerry Springer and Ricki Lake can only be pulled off if they have an emotionally raw "money shot" moment in which guests weep, throw chairs or fling themselves at another guest. "Like pornography," she writes, "daytime talk is a narrative of explicit revelation in which people `get down and dirty' and `bare it all' for the pleasure, fascination, or repulsion of viewers." Although similar insights have been expressed by other cultural critics, who've gone into some detail about the effects of these...

Totally Awesome 80s

Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Who could forget the decade that brought us AIDS, Milli Vannilli, teen slasher movies, and a sitting U.S. president with an advanced case of Alzheimer's disease? Well, I guess that question answers itself, but for those who wish to remember, no finer source can be found than Totally Awesome 80s, by Matthew Rettenmund, the man who brought us Encyclopedia Madonnica. This loving but ironic catalog of the most important cultural events of the 80s is fittingly slim, flashy, and shallow, covering mostly the poppiest movies, songs, and political actions of the era that told us "greed is good."

From Booklist
Although her qualifications seem slight at best to play a duchess in A Month in the Life of a Victorian Duke, a British reality television show, American Tessa Riordan desperately needs the money, so of course she says yes. Tessa soon discovers that part of her historically accurate costume includes a corset that could have easily doubled as an instrument of torture. Then she meets Maximillian Edgerton, the yummy Englishman playing the Duke of Bridgewater, but even though Tessa would love to indulge in a bit of real marital bliss with her new "husband," she is certain a sexy man like Max would never be interested in her. Still, a girl can dream, and the corset is doing some nice curvy things for her figure. Reality TV has never been more entertaining than here as the wickedly funny MacAlister has her heroine record...

The Andy Griffith Show remains one of America's most-watched programs, gaining new fans through its widespread syndication (including a major promotional campaign accompanying its joining TV Land's prime-time line-up in 2000), conventions, and upcoming "behind-the-scenes" television specials. America has embraced the characters of Mayberry---Aunt Bee, Barney Fife, Goober, Opie, and Andy himself---as family members. From Miracle Salves to Kerosene Cucumbers, The Andy Griffith Show has left a lasting impression on our culture, a sweet nostalgic taste for a time gone...
