Today is National Read in the Bathtub Day!


TV cop show writer Dick Wolf wanted to create a gritty, “ripped from the headlines” New York crime drama that gave equal focus to the detectives and the prosecutors. “In 1988,” he told TV Guide, “you couldn’t give away hour-long shows in reruns; you could only sell half-hour shows. So the original thinking was to try to make an hour-long show that could be split in half and sold as two half-hour shows.” He quickly came up with a concept: Law & Order. One half of the show would focus on police detectives tracking down a criminal; the other would show the criminal being prosecuted. Fox and CBS both turned it down. NBC picked it up … for 20 seasons and five spin-offs.

First TV-triggered fashion fad: all-black clothes, inspired by Hopalong Cassidy.

Friday's TV Trivia

Friday, February 08, 2013

In 1953, Danny Thomas’s family sitcom Make Room for Daddy debuted on ABC. Thomas was ordered, against his wishes, to cast Jean Hagen as his wife, Margaret. Hagen was beloved and received three Emmy nominations. But off-screen, Thomas couldn’t stand her attitude or what he considered her slovenly appearance. “For God’s sake, Jean,” he once yelled during a rehearsal, “put on high heels, put on a little lipstick!” After the third season, Hagen quit the show, but she was too popular for the role to be recast. Thomas made sure Hagen could never return even if she wanted to: When the fourth season of Make Room for Daddy premiered in 1956, viewers were shocked to learn that Margaret was dead. She was the first main character ever killed off on a family sitcom.

Quentin Tarantino’s showbiz debut was as an Elvis impersonator on The Golden Girls.

Wednesday's TV Trivia

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Amnesia is one of the most common psychiatric disorders on television. Usually caused by a head trauma, it can cause characters to forget weeks, months, or years of their lives, or—often—their entire identities. Example: On ALF, ALF gets bonked on the head and thinks he’s an international spy, and not, in fact, a space alien in hiding. In real life, amnesia is a genuine medical condition, but it’s quite different from the way it’s depicted on-screen. It is caused by head trauma, but memory loss is usually limited to a few moments before or after the accident; normal memory function returns in a few hours or a few days. Cases of people permanently forgetting whole sections of their lives—let alone their personalities—are rare.

QVC’s top-selling item in its first year (1977): a helmet that held two cans of beer, with a straw.
