Before cable was blessed with quality programs, people watched shows on the three major networks. One of these networks ruled the roost for close to two decades. That was NBC and tits domain was Thursday night. Everyone would plan their weeks around Thursday night on NBC.
Former NBC President , Warren Littlefield pens his account of the “Glory Years of Television” He writes an illuminating tale for the tv junkie like me. This book is chock full of goodies like casting tidbits and backstage chatter from the major players at NBC at that time. The book includes interviews with cast members of “Cheers,” Seinfeld” “Friends”, “ER”, “Frazier,” and “Will and Grace.” Meet the genius , Jimmy Burrows , and find out why Shelley Long really left “Cheers.” Hear about the doubts that Anthony Edwards and Noah Wyle had about “ER” and also find out the real scoop behind those negotiations and how the cast of “Friends” dealt with their sudden fame. I personally loved hearing the stars of “Will and Grace” talk about their love affair with the show and with each other. I think that this book is for anyone who is involved with show business or wants to be. Littlefield should be praised on a book that is a pleasure to read and is a trip down memory lane for fans of NBC shows.
