Sobre o livro
In the 1990s the big three networks were being challenged by upstarts FOX and the WB for viewer loyalty. Alongside must-see stalwarts likeFrasier,Friends, andSeinfeld, the new networks introduced pop culture touchstones likeBuffy the Vampire Slayer andThe X-Files. Such shows not only made household names of their stars, but also thrived in syndication and some even graduated to the big screen. In that decade, shows such asER, Everybody Loves Raymond, andNorthern Exposurewere vying for awards while programs likeBeverly Hills, 90210 andHome Improvement drew in millions of viewers each week.
