New Book Highlights the History of Television Taboos

From the July 14th, 2006 Issue of Entertainment Weekly:

Ten Things We Love This Week

3. 'THEY'LL NEVER PUT THAT ON THE AIR,' BY ALLAN NEUWIRTH From All in the Family to Seinfeld: Sharp analysis and firsthand anecdotes illuminate the stories behind TV's most taboo-busting comedies.

The book is a fun oral history of the behind-the-scenes machinations of those who fought to break down television taboos. Nobably, writer (and Archive interviewer) Allan Neuwirth used excerpts from three Archive interviews in the book and also interviewed some Archive alums on his own. Check it out.
