Herbie’s recent posts include thoughtful essays on Lucille Ball’s final weekly television series,
Life with Lucy, which premiered 25 years ago this fall, the demise of the much ballyhooed Wonder Woman pilot produced by David E. Kelley, and the upcoming reimaging of Charlie's Angels. We'll talk about these topics, and more, when Herbie J joins us in our first hour.

Also scheduled this week: a brand new edition of This Week in TV History, plus an encore presentation of our interview with
Ray Starman, author of TV Noir: The Twentieth Century, an excellent book that discusses the portrayal of film noir in such classic shows as Dragnet, The Fugitive, The Untouchables, M Squad, and other popular television series over the past 60 years. Though often considered a genre that strictly applies to crime and detective dramas, film noir lends itself to other TV genres, including war dramas such as Twelve O’Clock High, as well as explorations of paranoia and the paranormal, as seen in The Invaders and The X Files. We’ll talk about these shows, as well as the various kinds of film noir depicted on television, during our second hour.
