    I loved this. 5 stars. Excellent guide to shows from 1952 to 201

    I loved this. 5 stars.
    Excellent guide to shows from 1952 to 2011 that lasted no more than 6 episodes..
    The author provides a detailed guide even on unaired episodes.
    Many shows he could only watch the Library of Congress or the Paley Center.
    Author interviewed the creators to find the back story.
    It's hard to imagine a more complete TV guide to television’s limited runs.

    A guide to these 150 shows.
