The Sugarhill Gang may have added those last two names to their famous “Rappers Delight” lyrics if they’d been able to see what Tonight Show viewers witnessed this past week.

Jimmy Fallon will soon take over hosting duties for The Tonight Show. To remind us of that upcoming historic event, Fallon used his waning days on his show recently to insert himself into a set that looked eerily similar to the bedroom of a character from a hugely successful sitcom from the glory days of ABC’s TGIF:  Full House...

Linda's childhood love affair with television propelled her into working in that very medium for over 20 years. Ironically, despite her early devotion to programming, her specialty was station administration and FCC compliance. So she can tell you all about The Flintstones as well as why it does not qualify as E/I under the Children's Television Act.

 
 

Good news, TVWW readers: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is available on Amazon for $20.

Doubleday says: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. A high point is the author’s interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer and many others...Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
