User reviews about the book
Boring...Must See Tv was a snooze.
Hoped it would be more interesting and have more chewy insider stories, but it really didn't. I've read other books that were of the some ilk that were much more fascinating. This was just...Meh. Meh.
Top of the Rock
A fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the nether regions of network television.
I really enjoyed this
Good, but lacks venon
Great read if you were fan of the shows, but too much sucking up and wanking between some of the talent interviewed. Lots of people involved in the shows are missing, and we know there was much more drama behind the scenes than we are told. It does get more interesting in the end, where Warren is fired and he lets his interviewees trash Jeff Zucker.
Best depositions come from Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Alexander and Lisa Kudrow.
As a fan of television, it was awesome to read behind the scenes at the last great age of Primetime. Awesome firsthand accounts from the people who lived it.
Top of the rock
Fascinating look at the behind the scenes workings of such hits as Cheers, Seinfeld, and Friends among others. A must-read for those who are interested in how the shows we love came to fruition, and the genius minds behind them.
Top of the rock...indeed!
I loved this book! So much inside information. You really got the sense of what it took to make "must see TV" happen.
If interested, interesting.
It was good enough because I was interested and accept it as the self and group wank fest it was.
I watched at least 80% of the shows featured in this book, religiously. There was a time in which I was glued to the tv on Thursday night between 8:00-11:00. And that's exactly what this book is about. Those great shows and the guy who made it happen.
If you were on the same couch schedule as I was and you enjoy behind the scenes goodies like I do, then you'll love this book.
