Dec 21, 2012 Alison rated it liked it. Shelves: 2013. Extremely fascinating and I recommend it for people in the TV biz. Unfortunately, the book was written before TV was considered an art form, and is far from academic. But if you look past the style, there' It took me almost a month (!), but now I've read about EVERY SITCOM that aired from 1949-1983.

This is a great product for anyone who adored their childhood Sitcoms or misses the good old days of television. It begins at the start of Sitcoms on television and ends in 1980. It covers a lot. Unfortunately were it ends is right before the other great classics like Cheers, Perfect Strangers, Night Court, The Cosby Show, and Golden Girls. That said, if your interested in everything before that, this book will please you. Shows that had the highest ratings and were at the top of their game are given two or three page summaries. Examples of shows that get this distinction are I Love Lucy, Mary Tyler Moore Show, Leave It to Beaver, MASH, and the Andy Griffith Show.
It doesn't leave out the others though. It gives small summaries and facts for "all" the other shows on during the year (I say all, because there are a lot, but I wasn't alive for any of the shows listed in the book so I couldn't say if anything was omitted). But it's a fun read and it's great to see what was on and what was considered cool at the time.
I had to do a report for a theater class: compare Roman Comedy to Sitcoms. This book was extremely helpful and I was able to make an A on the paper. The introduction explains the different kinds of Sitcoms and other information that you don't normally think about. Like I said before, it's a great read and a great buy. Definitely worth the price.

Although a bit limited in detail, what surprised me when I first came across it were the pieces on each season's "front runners"(as it's referred to here). Rick Mitz starts in 1949-basically, the dawning of the sitcom-with the original classics "The Goldbergs" & "Mama", proceeds to 1950's "Amos'n'Andy" & "The George Burns & Gracie Allen Show", 1951's "I Love Lucy", "Mr.Peepers", "My Little Margie", etc, etc. I have never located any reference guides on the bulk of these early programs. There are also 1/2 page breakdowns of secondary shows like "Bachelor Father", "F Troop", "Gidget", "Green Acres", "Hogan's Heroes", & "The Brady Bunch". Not to mention, there's a thorough listing in the back of the book of all the other sitcoms, per year. What makes the guide, though, are not so much the popular programs that are found everywhere-"I Love Lucy", "The Andy Griffith Show", etc., but more the rarities, the shows no text has taken on, that really make this guide. For instance, one of the more subtle family shows of the era, "Father Knows Best", appears here (finally getting its due on DVD). It's great to have anything @ all on this show, whether it's not even quite five pages or not. What I'm trying to say here is that whether they're only five pages, go out and try to locate anything similar on "The Life of Riley", "Topper", "Our Miss Brooks", "I Married Joan", "December Bride", "Love That Bob", "The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis", or "Car 54, Where are You?" It's going to be tough. Although basic info appears in 'The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network & Cable TV Shows' & 'Total Television'(see both my reviews on these), these really just give synopsis and casts of shows. The latter part of the book is just the standard "classic sitcom" period of the 70s that's found in several guides. Whatever your taste in classic sitcoms, though, its here.

Yes, Yes, Yes! I had this book many years ago. I read it so many times, it fell apart. My cover was green. This is the greatest for any TV sitcom fanatic. Buy it and display it proudly. It belongs in every TV fan's library.

This book is incredibly rich in detail, with innumerable scenes recounted, often with the exact dialogue reproduced. This is a loving work of art and a great reference book.
