More ‘The Revolution Was Televised’ link-blogging

11.28.12 5 years ago 30 Comments

As promised on Monday, when I linked to the “Lost” excerpt on Grantland, this is a big week of press for my book, “The Revolution Was Televised: The Cops, Crooks, Slingers and Slayers Who Changed TV Drama Forever.” Don’t want to overwhelm you all with posts on it – and risk turning into Jay Sherman – but every now and then I’ll assemble all the recent links in case you want to read/listen to more about the project:

* First, James Poniewozik at Time wrote a very complimentary review of the book, joining the estimable likes of Tim Goodman and Emily Nussbaum in praising the thing.

* Second, Mo Ryan wrote her own review, and if you follow that link, you can also hear the hour-long conversation I had with Mo and Ryan McGee on their podcast, Talking TV with Ryan and Ryan.

* Over at BuzzFeed, Kate Aurthur and I had a long email back and forth about the book, with Kate resolutely grilling me about why certain shows like “Six Feet Under” and “West Wing” were left out.

* Zack Smith is guest-writing USA Today’s Pop Candy blog this week, and he also interviewed me about the book.

* I did a long live-chat yesterday with the readers over at The Big Lead sports blog, taking questions about the book, and about TV in general.

As always, you can find more information about the book at, and buy it now in paperback, for Kindle, Nook, iBooks (the iTunes store finally added it yesterday, and I am pleased to find myself outselling my daughter’s old favorite book, “Fancy Nancy and the Posh Puppy”) and Kobo. If you’ve bought the book through one of those outlets and want to add a review or simply rate it, I imagine that wouldn’t be a bad thing, but mainly I’m just happy to see people buying and reading it.

And either email me with questions or add comments below.
