    PDF iphoneleaks.co.uk ☆ Top of the Rock eBook Ç Top of PDF \ rock kindle, Top of ebok, Top of the Rock KindleThis oral history literary format interests me The first book I remember reading in the “brief bits of interviews cut together to tell a story” format was Please Kill Me Next came the west coast version of the same We Got The Neutron Bomb A while back I read The Replacements history all interviews if my memory serves me well then earlier this spring the extensive ESPN history Last week I read another oral history this one from the “Must See TV” eraOkay first background knowledge If you're under oh thirty maybe you might never have heard this “Must See TV” verbiage For a stretch of the nineties NBC's Thursday night lineup pulled down massive ratings This was before you could DVR shows so if you wanted to see the programs outside of their original broadcast you had to program your VCR to record them VCRs were kind of a pain in the ass You had to push like seven or eight buttons instead of today's tw

    PDF iphoneleaks.co.uk ☆ Top of the Rock eBook Ç Top of PDF \ rock kindle, Top of ebok, Top of the Rock KindleAn oral history of NBC's prime years in the mid late 90s told by various execs and creative folk I'd give it three and a half stars if I could It's interesting for sure I am a huge television nerd with a mean nostalgic streak so this is right up my alley It read uickly and I definitely enjoyed it though the oral history format doesn't offer any form of critical analysis to place the events in a larger framework Something like that probably would have reuired an additional couple hundred pages though so it's probably just as well that this was limited to Warren Littlefield's perspective of his tenure It also kind of assumes that the reader is going to know a lot of the history already For example in a conversation about casting for Cheers someone makes the comment that Nicholas Colasanto was dying when he auditioned but didn

    PDF iphoneleaks.co.uk ☆ Top of the Rock eBook Ç Top of PDF \ rock kindle, Top of ebok, Top of the Rock KindleI don't know who this book is for This pseudo oral history is populated by too many suits and business types and few of the creative people Littlefield keeps saying are so important It purports to explain the business side of the euation but glosses over details in favour of broad allusions to the importance of scheduling The entire way along Littlefield praises himself and condemns execs like Don Ohlmeyer never giving those he maligns a chance for rebuttals Even worse is the album's closing chapter a chance for a resentful Littlefield and others spurned by NBC after his ouster to bad mouth and metaphorically shit all over his suc

    PDF iphoneleaks.co.uk ☆ Top of the Rock eBook Ç Top of PDF \ rock kindle, Top of ebok, Top of the Rock KindleReally enjoyed this reflection on NBC in the 90s Littlefield is a bit self congratulatory and largely skips over things like his network’s basic refusal to put Black actors on their shows while celebrating Will and Grace’s decision to eliminate their one network mandated Black character But I love that the book pulls no punches about what an asshole Don Ohlmeyer was and it ends discussing in depth how shitty Jeff Zucker is Worth reading for anyone interested in this era of television

    PDF iphoneleaks.co.uk ☆ Top of the Rock eBook Ç Top of PDF \ rock kindle, Top of ebok, Top of the Rock KindleI wasn't sure about this I only watched a few of the shows in the Must See TV era and most of those were from the early years Still this was an interesting read I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the development and production of many of the shows especially Cheers and Frasier Mad About You Friends ER and Will and Grace As far as ER went when they were getting ready to air the pilot NBC advertised via a 60 second snippet on LA Law The same was true for LA Law on Hill Street Blues loved reading briefly about this historical progressionAlso it is interesting to see where NBC has gone since the Must See TV era ended and after Warren Littlefield was firedFinally it was especially interesting to learn a little about the ratings system The highest rated piece of episodic TV is the final episode of MASH CBS when 77% of American households were planted in front of their TV to watch history in the makingAs television channels came into play The Cosby Show Am
