The Biz: Television Takes Center Stage on CNN's The Sixties

If you were to put 1960s television on a psychiatrist's couch, it would be diagnosed as schizophrenic. Primetime was loaded with frothy, high-concept sitcoms, such as Gilligan's Island and I Dream of Jeannie, that became baby boomer favorites, while network news delivered grim images of the Vietnam War, social unrest, and assassinations.

Premise: An inexplicably enduring sitcom about seven stranded castaways on an uncharted desert isle. Despite a critical bashing, the show became a pop-culture phenomenon after it was released in syndication; and spun off three TV movies (including the immortal `Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island') and two Saturday-morning cartoons, one set in outer space (`Gilligan's Planet'). Gilligan's first name was never mentioned in the nearly 100 episodes.
