  • Résumé

yes'#8226; Sullivan has nearly 100% name recognition among people 40 and older

yes'#8226; In a survey of the fifty most influential programs in the U.S., TV Guide ranked The Ed Sullivan Show #10

yes'#8226; Show still appears on PBS and on cable stations across the country

yes'#8226; Sixty million baby boomers grew up watching The Ed Sullivan Show



For more than twenty years, from 1948 to 1971, fifty-five million viewers watched The Ed Sullivan Show religiously every Sunday night. Everyone who was anyone appearedyes'#8212;the Beatles and Elvis, of course, and Woody Allen, Bill Cosby, and Elizabeth Taylor, plus public figures such as Fidel Castro, David Ben-Gurion, and Martin Luther King, Jr. More than thirty years later, the program remains a pop-culture icon. But despite Ed Sullivan's prominence, little was known about the private man...until now. Impresario reveals what the Sullivan viewers never saw: nasty, hot-tempered, craven, yet also capable of high ideals and, above all, hugely ambitious. At a time when Americans are looking back, The Ed Sullivan Show stands out as a shining example of television during the golden era. Impresario lets readers look behind the screen to see the man who made it happen.
