Television: read all about it in two intriguing new books

Two veteran TV critics have new books to their names. Alan Sepinwall’s updated addition of The Revolution Was Televised remains an instant classic. Tom Jicha’s The Top 100 American Situation Comedies: An Objective Ranking (written in partnership with Prof. Mitchell E. Shapiro) makes for good bathroom reading (in the best sense of those words). Our breakdowns are on the Network News & Reviews page.

Plus, return with your friendly content provider to the 1992 New Hampshire presidential primary, when a big gaggle of candidates unleashed an air blitz in pre-“social media” times. A look back at their saturation TV ad campaigns is on the Back Channels page.

Also, in case you missed it, veteran Fox4 reporter Melissa Cutler has left the station to try something new. Her comments and more details are on the Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.
