Synopsis: Brought to you by the ultimate authority on Our Television Heritage -- here is the definitive entertaining reference to some of TV's enduring classics.

With a flip of the page, the inside scoop on America's favorite TV sitcoms is at your fingertips. Nick at Nite's Classic TV Companion offers capsule descriptions of every episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Dick Van Dyke Show, I Love Lucy, Bewitched, The Bob Newhart Show, I Dream of Jeannie, The Munsters, Taxi, and Welcome Back, Kotter. Featured are such vital nuggets as:

  • Classic guest stars: cameos by famous actors

  • Classic quotes: TV's classic catchphrases and unforgettable one-liners

  • Awards and critical comments

Plus, the answers to all the important questions, such as:

  • Did Lassie really appear on an episode of Taxi?

  • Why did Lucy's fight in the chocolate factory look so real?

  • Which episode of Welcome Back, Kotter was written by Garry Shandling?

Nick at Nite's Classic TV Companion is the most delightful way to explore the hidden secrets of your favorite series and a book you'll want to keep as handy as your remote control.

From Booklist: Situation comedies have been a major element in TV programming from the medium's inception, but the cable channel Nick at Nite has made the genre its mainstay. Its programming consists almost entirely of reruns of fondly remembered sitcoms. This well-researched guide to the nine vintage series currently airing on the network is the perfect couchside companion for Nick-addicted viewers. It provides plot synopses and lists casts, directors, and other credits, such as guest appearances that have become renowned--for instance, Raquel Welch, prestardom, as a stewardess in an I Dream of Jeannie episode. Editor Hill is responsible for Nick's on-air promos, and he adopts their smart-alecky yet affectionate tone here, especially in sidebars on such topics as the variations of the Dick Van Dyke Show's opening sequence. Unfortunately for sitcom connoisseurs, the book's scope is limited to Nick's current schedule, featuring as many schlock shows (The Munsters, Welcome Back, Kotter) as classics. It is entertaining and useful, nonetheless, for reference purposes as well as circulation. Gordon Flagg
