Aug. 1, 2011

First hour: Tony Figueroa and Donna Allen join Ed for a look at some notable anniversaries that occur This Week in Television History, including the 30th anniversary of the premiere of MTV, the 40th anniversary of the premiere of The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour and the 100th anniversary of the birth of Lucille Ball.

Second hour: Ed and Tony welcome Edgar Award-nominated writer, producer and novelist Lee Goldberg (Diagnosis Murder, Monk, Psych, Hunter, Spenser: For Hire, Remaindered, Successful Television Writing). Lee's latest books include Watch Me Die, a fast-paced whodunit with humor about a would-be private eye who finds himself embroiled in a real-life mystery, drawing on knowledge he’s learned from reading Spenser novels and watching Mannix reruns (only to find that real-life detective work can be hazardous to his health); and Mr. Monk on the Couch, the latest edition in the best-selling Monk mystery novels based on the popular USA-TV series starring Tony Shalhoub
