About the Book

When did Queen for a Day air? How long did the soap opera The Edge of Night run?
This reference work is a valuable companion to the author’s two previous volumes Television Network Prime-Time Programming, (1989 and 2009), covering 1948 to 2007, and … Weekend Programming, 1950–1990 (1992).
Beginning with September 1959 and continuing to the fall of 1989, this work provides month-by-month early morning (Monday–Friday, 7–9 a.m.), daytime (Monday–Friday, 10–6) and late night (Monday–Friday, 11–2 a.m.) schedules for four national broadcasting networks (ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox).
Schedules are presented in easy-to-understand, at-a-glance charts. Also included are a detailed listing of all network programming moves, including series premieres, cancellations and time slot moves, and a yearly recap of key programming moves.
