A while ago I was told that I should read the terribly interesting “The Late Shift” by Bill Carter. It’s a fascinating account of everything that happened in the decision to choose Jay Leno over David Letterman to succeed Carson. I thought this book was fantastically researched, well written, and interesting. I know he has a new book called “The War for Late Night” that’s about Leno/Conan and I have that on order to read but I want more.
What books does the dopernation recommend that also give me a cool behind the scenes look at something. I have heard rumors that there is on out there on ESPN, I think that would be hella interesting, but what else is there? It doesn’t necessarily have to be about TV but those seem to be the most out there. Thanks a bundle guys!
