AnneCP said:
Former head of NBC programming Warren Littlefield provides a page-turner of a history in his look at the Must-See TV era at NBC. Beginning with Cheers, which marked the ascent of NBC after years in limbo, and going through the finale of Seinfeld, which also marked the end of Littlefield’s time at the network, the story is told in interviews with executives, creative teams and actors who were responsible for the massive hits we grew up with. It provides a fascinating inside look at what it takes to create a hit show, from support of the writers and directors to promotion to dumb luck. Unlike most books of this kind, which can turn into an expose of which actors hated each other on the set, this book is really about the creative process and the many, many talented and brilliant people needed to put a quality TV show together. As more of a fiction reader, this book was surprisingly the perfect easy read I needed around the holidays. Highly recommended to anyone who was as obsessed with Friends, ER, and Frasier as I was back in the day.
