The following articles are the cornerstone of Television Obscurities and have been split into four broad categories. As new information becomes available, they are revised and updated as needed.
These articles cover topics relating to the television industry that may be unfamiliar to the casual viewer, ranging from the programming trends to fall preview specials to unsold pilots shown on television.
- Broadcast Twice a Week (or More)
- The Color Revolution: Television In The Sixties
- Early Networks and the East-Midwest Connection
- Nielsen “Black Weeks”
- Outtakes, Bloopers & Goofs
- Television Programs in 1941
These articles don’t fit neatly into any of the other three categories. Subjects include unsold pilots, failed pilot presentations, attempts to translate comic strips to the small screen, and more.
These articles focus on a single television show. Each offers an in-depth, detailed overview of the premise, cast and episodes with an emphasis on why it was cancelled as well as Nielsen ratings and reviews from television critics.
These articles look at promotional efforts, fall previews, special programming and other aspects of network broadcast television.
