  • Let's Talk About..."TV Guide"

    Elise Marylander|Apr 26, 2023

    OK. Raise your hand if you miss "TV Guide." I mean the pint-sized weekly magazine, not the website. I do. A lot. "TV Guide" ushered in the whole era of television watching starting in 1953, designating which shows were broadcast in "living color" in its familiar grid of times and channels.

    Deborah Cameron|Apr 26, 2023
