Excellent book on the not only the show but the times -- and, my how they have changed!

Sometimes, when hearing about this before, I wondered why Tom fought so hard. But now, reading this book, I have great respect for him and his ideals.

Now I want to see these shows again, as I was in grade school when they aired and all the political content went over my head or was "explained" by my dad! :D

Not entertaining at all, no insights about the people or the times. Reads like a calendar of the Smother's Brothers guests over the 3 seasons. Dry and boring. Request the HCL library DVD:
"Smothered : the censorship struggles of The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" It's WAY better and only 90 minutes long, with live performances.

Very talky. Interesting for those who actually watched the original show.
