We’ll drop by at 1164 Morning Glory Circle in our first hour as we welcome back Herbie J Pilato. Herbie, of course, is not only the leading authority on Bewitched, he is also the author of Twitch Upon a Star, the first full-fledged, no-holds barred biography of the star of Bewitched, Elizabeth Montgomery. Though many of us think of Elizabeth Montgomery as the supernatural character Samantha Stephens, in real life she was as human — or, as Endora would put it — as “mortal” as you can be. She was outgoing, yet private; strong-willed, yet sometimes insecure; fiercely independent of her father, screen legend Robert Montgomery, yet always seeking his approval.

Twitch Upon a Star not only features interviews with many of Elizabeth’s family members and closest friends, including Liz Sheridan (Jerry Seinfeld’s mom on Seinfeld), Florence Henderson, Sally Kemp, Cliff Robertson, William Asher and Robert Foxworth, but previously unpublished interviews with some of Elizabeth’s cast members on Bewitched, including David White and Dick Sargent.

Herbie J Pilato will be appearing at the Book Star Barnes and Noble, 12136 Ventura Blvd. in Studio City on Friday, Nov. 9, beginning at 7pm. He’ll also be at Book Soup, 8818 Sunset Blvd. in West Hollywood, CA on Monday, Nov. 12, beginning at 7pm.

Also joining us this week will be Stephen Battaglio, business editor for TV Guide. Steve’s latest book,
Election Night: A Television History: 1948-2012 is an enhanced e-Book that provides an inside look at how NBC News has covered U.S. presidential elections since the dawn of television. Steve’s book not only includes comments from such legendary news figures as Chet Huntley, David Brinkley, John Chancellor, Tom Brokaw, and Tim Russert, but explores the technical advancements in vote counting, live coverage from the field, how the networks call a state for a candidate, and how the drama unfolds in the control room.

The enhanced e-Book edition of Election Night: A Television History also includes more than 90 minutes of archival video from NBC News, including footage of NBC’s coverage of past Presidential debates, as well as the assassination of Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy in June 1968. Steve will be joining us in our first hour.

Plus: a brand new edition of This Week in TV History. It’s a full program as always; we certainly hope you’ll join us.
