    Scope and Content of Collection

    TV Scout Up to the Minute Program Preview was a syndicated newspaper column presenting brief episode summaries and critiques of TV episodes showing that night. Each episode is reviewed in two or three sentences. These previews were written by "staff television specialists in NY and Hollywood only after the staff has screened the programs, discussed them with producers, writers and actors or assessed scripts." This collection covers January through December 1976 and is presented as typewritten copy to be disseminated.
