Description: In his second collection, Michael J. Arlen explores diverse topics such as Howard Cosell's sports-announcing style and Tom Snyder's abrasive news delivery. He discusses the combination of anger and comedy that animated "All in the Family", as well as the buried eroticism in certain TV commercials.

A passionate critic of the evasions and insufficiencies of television news, Arlen writes with a fresh viewpoint on the presence of violence in television programs, but in "The Holiday Dinner" he reveals a humorous grasp of the entire television experience. Arlen continues his original commentary on the passing life and times of this communications-conscious nation. This book was originally published in 1974 by Farrar, Straus & Giroux.
