Long ago, in pre-Snooki times, PBS birthed the first full-blown "reality" series

PBS' 1973 An American Family, a 12-hour fly-on-the-wall look at the fractious Louds of Santa Barbara, can be (dis)credited with birthing the still exploding "reality" TV movement. The new HBO movie Cinema Verite recreates those times with the star power of Diane Lane, Tim Robbins and James Gandolfini. Our review is here.

Plus, Wednesday's D-FW Nielsen ratings show high times for Fox/Fox4 and some pluck for the local Peacock.
