As a young boy, I remember sitting with my family around our large Philco television set with the small 12" screen to watch The Ed Sullivan Show on Sunday evenings. Ed was a New York entertainment gossip reporter, who provided national exposure to up-and-coming entertainers such as Buddy Holly, Elvis, Sammy Davis, Jr, Jackie Mason, The Rolling Stones, etc. On the other hand, if he didn't like you, or thought you were a Communist sympathizer, he did his best to derail your career. Known for his stone face and stiff deliveries, Ed Sullivan was an American icon. Sundays with Sullivan: How The Ed Sullivan Show Brought Elvis, The Beatles and Culture to America provides great behind the scenes anecdotes to entertain everyone. No other personality did more to shape the nature of television entertainment.
