Description: Primetime Blues is the first comprehensive history of African Americans on network television. Donald Bogle not only examines the stereotypes that too often continue to march across the screen today but also shows the ways in which television has been invigorated by extraordinary black performers, whose presence on the screen has been of great significance to the African American community. This important book presents a history rich in achievement and paradox -- a history that tells us as much about attitudes toward race and sex as it does about the way in which this country feels most comfortable viewing its African American citizens.

Bogle's exhaustive study moves from the postwar era of Beulah and Amos 'n' Andy to the politically restless sixties reflected in I Spy and an edgy, ultra-hip program like The Mod Squad. He examines the television of the seventies, when a nation still caught up in Vietnam and Watergate retreated into the ethnic humor of Sanford and Son and Good Times, and the politically conservative eighties marked by the unexpected success of The Cosby Show and the emergence of deracialized characters on such dramatic series as L.A. Law. Finally, he turns a critical eye to the television landscape of the nineties, with shows such as The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, I'll Fly Away, ER, and The Steve Harvey Show.
