introducing a wonderful time suck

the-emmy-award

Actually, it’s not a complete time suck, especially if you’re a student (real or pretend) of television, culture and media. It’s extremely informative and educational. They don’t cover this kind of in-depth stuff on those entertainment shows.

In advance of the 61st Annual Emmy Awards, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Foundation has launched a web site called Archive of American Television.

Oh my heavens the interviews: Steve Allen describes the birth of “Tonight,” Isabel Sanford talks about her path from theater to “The Jeffersons” and literally hundreds more. Also titled “Emmy TV Legends”, this web site’s interviews can be searched by people, show, profession or topic.

I find this stuff fascinating so if you’re looking for me and I’m not immediately found, that’s where I might be. Join me in the office and let’s watch some REALLY good television…on the web!
