This is a reference book to all the prime time and nighttime Emmy winning shows through 2004."

Many of the entries include original interviews with cast or crew members. The best of variety, drama, game shows, comedies, adventures and many more categories are featured. An appendix offers interesting facts and figures, there are nearly 100 photographs, and the work is fully indexed."--BOOK JACKET.
