    Welcome to The Steven Banks Show guide at TV.com.

    "My name is Steven, how the hell are you? I said good evening, how the hell are you? This is my show, in case you didn't know, So sit right back, don't have a heart attack or a stroke. This is my show, so now you know."

    "On this show, I am the wacky neighbor" comedian/musician Steven Banks commented on this rare American-produced PBS comedy series. The show was taped before a live audience in Altadena and presented by Brandon Tartikoff's Easting Down productions and WYES-TV in New Orleans.

    The Steven Banks show began as Banks' play "Home Entertainment Center," which aired on the Showtime Network. The play depicts Steven coming home from work and having to provide a speech to the board of directors at work. Rather than work on the speech, chronic procrastinator Banks embarks on various diversions, such as picking up various musical instruments in his cluttered apartment and improvising entire songs. The play became the basis of a pilot which Showtime aired, but never developed into a series. PBS picked up Steven Banks for his own show in the summer of 1994, when public television was under pressure from right-wing critics who criticized PBS as a "liberal media elite", and gave him a limited 8-episode run on Monday nights from July 11, 1994 to September 5, 1994.

    The series was based on the pilot, and featured Michael Kostroff and Teresa Parente as the entire supporting cast, as well as various other one-time roles. Banks was still himself, still a bachelor in his mid-thirties, acting out his own fantasies and procrastinating in his cluttered apartment in what some critics described as "Pee-Wee's Playhouse for baby-boomer shut-ins."** However, the show vanished from the air in September of 1994, leaving 5 episodes untelevised in the U.S.

    An American Family (1973)

    Follow
    PBS (ended 1973)
    Decades before MTV ignited the reality-TV phenomenon with “The Real World,” this 12-hour PBS series documented the lives of the Loud family of Santa Barbara, CA. This upper-middle class family allowed film makers Alan and Susan Raymond into their home for nine months, and the result was a stinging portrait of the American Family circa 1970. Patriarch Bill Loud owned a small construction company; his wife Pat was the chain-smoking housewife and mother to the couple’s five teen-aged children. Sons Kevin and Grant spend the summer rehearsing their band in the garage while Kevin tries his hand at part-time work in Dad’s office. Youngest daughter Michele struggles with adolescence while eldest daughter Delilah twirls the baton and enjoys her popular high school status. The breakout star of the family, however, is living in New York, experimenting with his new-found freedom and sexuality. Eldest son Lance Loud’s flamboyant lifestyle and open homosexuality shocked some viewers but electrified the series. Mother Pat’s visit to Lance’s one-room apt. in Manhattan dominated episode three of the series, introducing her and the American public to the life of an urban gay man in the early 70's. Evenings were spent in questionable downtown cabarets and clubs, with Lance’s hilariously fey roommate accompanying mother and son. Back home in Santa Barbara, the Loud’s marriage was slowly unraveling. The moment when Bill Loud, quietly and calmly, picked up the phone to reserve a hotel room for the night, signaling the end of his marriage, remains a high watermark of cinema verite. Lance Loud lived with HIV for 18 years and passed away in a Los Angeles hospice in 2001. The rest of his family remain ambivalent about the experience of making “An American Family,” a series which put their lives in a fishbowl but allows them to be classified as pioneers of the genre. Today’s reality television is redolent with its participants confessing to the camera every thought or feeling which occurs to them, but in 1973, the Louds simply lived their lives, with no self-explanation or apology.moreless

    Every episode of this teen-targetted PBS drama delivered a new challenge for the Powerhouse gang: a group of teens (Jennifer, Lolo, Kevin, Pepper and Tony) who hung out at a community center run by Brenda Gaines. In the process of solving each episodes problem, important life lessons were learned all around. The show tackled similar issues to the famous "Afterschool Special" series. Major life issues such as alcoholism, anti-semitism, kidnapping, communicable diseases, government corruption and even worker outplacement were covered making this show surprisingly grown-up for what looked like a PBS kids show. The show also memorably featured a series of "un-commercials". Appearing at the same time breaks where a regular TV commercial might appear, these custom made public service announcements promoted such things as healthy eating and exercise. A common tagline of the ads was "don't just sit there, do something."moreless

    South Carolina ETV, the series' co-producing agency, called The Dooley and Pals Show "A terrific children's series from a star far, far away." Designed to fit in with most other PBS Kids shows, The Dooley and Pals Show cobined live-sized space creatures Dooley and his robot friend M.A.R.T.I.E. with ordinary Earth people. Among Dooley's new friends were children Nick (male) and Maxx (female). The show was replete with 3-D animation, children's drawings, and vox pops (incorrectly identified by some as "kid on the street" segments). Programs always ended with a Dooley log entry summarizing the lessons learned, and a lively song praising the "Dooley Day" he had just shared. Produced in the facilities of The Disney-MGM Studios in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, The Dooley and Pals Show was distributed by American Public Television from April 2, 2000 to April 1, 2003. After that date, the eleven-station ETV Network in South Carolina was the only place to find The Dooley and Pals Show. Despite this setback, ETV is negotiating with co-producer Mark Riddle to revitalize the series. In addition, Dooley stil appears at some ETV-sponsored events, such as the South Carolina State Fair, held in Columbia, SC each October.moreless

    For ten years, a group in Bloomington, Indiana called AIT had been producing "consortia" series for public television. These were instructional series developed by a consortium of state and provincial education agencies. Their names are legendary: Ripples, Inside Out, Self Incorporaed and Trade-offs. But with 1979 came AIT's magnum opus. Welcome to the ThinkAbout guide at TV Tome. All the skills essential to learning that AIT had cultivated over a decade were poured into ThinkAbout, and many men and women helped in completing this master series. Producers included the Educational Film Center in Virginia, Alberta-based Access, TVO in Toronto (sometimes with help from The Film Works), KERA Unlimited in Dallas, KOCE in Huntington Beach, the Utah State Board of Education, KETC in St. Louis, and the growing South Carolina ETV Network. Together they created these master lessons that defined everything the AIT originally stood for. The content of ThinkAbout was developed by a consortium of more than 40 state and provincial educational agencies, working with the late Larry Walcoff in the AIT code: "Together, serving education."moreless

    How do you do, ladies and gentlemen and boys and girls? I wish to honor Prof. Julius Sumner Miller. Physics was his business. Consider the following: A 58-year-old physicist has become a celebrity, playing Professor Wonderful on the original Mickey Mouse Club. In Australia during the mid-1960s, he is known to millions as the host of Why Is It So? He has also made multiple appearances on all the talk shows. The man says he is too old for any work, any position at a major college. But he can still lecture. An offer comes from the new Western Instructional Television. In it, Miller is given a free hand. He tells audiences that he would not lecture. Rather, he would show the beauty and drama of physics through a series of demonstrations involving scientific equipment, household items, and toys. This, he said, would make physics fun for children ages 4 to 94. The whole point of these programs was, for Miller, intellectual fun. He wanted to show his audience how Nature behaves. This was, for the Professor, the most satisfaction he got from his later years: intellectual fun. Watch it… watch it… watch it… There it is.moreless

Dominating the new series of 30 episodes was Stephanie Yu, the only cast holdover from the original 3-2-1 Contact.

    PBS
    Welcome to The Robert MacNeil Report guide at TV.com. On October 20 1975 a new evening television news program first broadcasted weeknights on PBS in the United States. Unlike most other evening newscasts in the country, it is an hour in length. The program runs longer segments than most other news outlets in the U.S., with in-depth coverage of the subjects involved. The NewsHour avoids the use of sound bites, playing back extended portions of news conferences and holding interviews that last several minutes. The program was initially hosted by Robert MacNeil and Jim Lehrer, but MacNeil left the spotlight in 1995. The show continues to be produced by their joint production company, MacNeil/Lehrer Productions. Broadcast History MacNeil and Lehrer had covered the United States Senate Watergate hearings for PBS starting in 1973, which led to an Emmy Award. This recognition helped them as they worked to create "The Robert MacNeil Report" with Jim Lehrer as a half-hour local news program for WNET in 1975 that covered a single issue in-depth. A few months later, the program was renamed "The MacNeil/Lehrer Report" and began to be broadcast nationally on PBS stations. The program changed formats and extended to an hour in length in 1983, becoming known as "The MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour" until MacNeil left the program and now the title is "The News Hour with Jim Lerher". Compared with other shows, The NewsHour runs at a slow pace. At the start of the program, a news summary that lasts a few minutes is given, briefly explaining many of the headlines around the world. This is typically followed by three or four longer news segments running 10-15 minutes that explore a few of the headline events in greater detail. The program usually wraps up with a debate between two journalists. As of 2004, the two people who usually debate are Mark Shields and David Brooks. According to Nielsen ratings at the program's website, 2.7 million people watch the program each night, and 8 million individuals watch in the course of a week. It is broadcast on more than 300 PBS stations, reaching 99% of the viewing public, and audio is broadcast by some National Public Radio stations. Broadcasts are also made available worldwide via satellites operated by various agencies. Archives of most of the shows are available in several streaming media formats (including full-motion video) at the program's website. The program originates in Washington, D.C., with additional facilities in San Francisco, California and Denver, Colorado, and is a collaboration between the WNET, WETA, and KQED television stations.moreless
