There's a First (and Last) Time for Everything in Broadcasting

Did you ever wonder when ESPN first aired? Ever consider when your fave local station broadcast its first signal? Have you thought lately about the first lesbian or gay kiss? (No, not your's. The first one on US TV.) How about the day the first NBC series drew less than a 3.0 rating?

I've been compiling famous firsts and lasts in US broadcast history. Just like everything else on this blog, this list is a work in progress. The list currently has 610 items with a verified date and another 1925 items for which I'm still verifying dates. I'll continue to add new items too.

You can find this new feature in the near right sidebar under "On This Date."
