Shameless Self-Promotion: TV Time at ClassicFlix!

My new article is up at ClassicFlix, and this month I continue my exploration of the top-rated TV episodes of the 1960s. A few of these are obvious and are bedrock pieces of television history, but some may surprise you.

TV TIME: Top-Rated TV Episodes, Part 2
By Rick Brooks
Last time, we began an exploration of the highest-rated television episodes of the classic era, as reported by Wesley Hyatt in his excellent book Television's Top 100: The Most Watched American Broadcasts 1960-2010. This month we continue our journey in chronological order. As mentioned in Part 1, to avoid repetition, each series only gets one entry in Hyatt's book. Also, for the purposes of this piece, we are excluding specials, movies, and sporting events.
