First tv show ever aired?      Tue Apr 20, 2010 10:47 am Reply with quote

What was the very first tv show that was ever aired on television? When did it air? Who was on it? What was it about?

First television series on the air?      Thu Aug 26, 2010 6:17 pm Reply with quote

I don't know what the first show on television was but I think the first ones were right after World War II and mostly broadcast just in New York City. I think I once read something about even earlier shows that were on closed circuit TV so they weren't broadcast to the public or something like that.

That's a really complicated question because there were experimental shows that no one ever saw. There were shows that lasted one episode when there were less than a dozen TV sets. And then there were the first more widely seen shows that only lasted a week or a month.

Check out this What was the first show on TV post in my Blog section for more detailed information.
