Picks and Pans Review: Prime-Time Television: a Pictorial History
by Fred and Stan Goldstein
It's sloppily edited and designed. A lot of the more than 2,000 pictures are of atrocious quality. Still, it's fun to leaf through and be reminded of such series as 1952's Heaven for Betsy, co-starring Jack Lemmon, The $100,000 Big Surprise (hosted by Mike Wallace from 1955 to '57), The Good Life with Larry Hagman and Donna Mills (1971-72), Blansky's Beauties with Nancy Walker (1977) and 1982's Report to Murphy, which co-starred Michael Keaton. Sic transit Nielsen. (Crown, $25)
