May 12, 1992
But in anticipation of my eleventh year, something was happening in Hollywood. On May 12, 1992, a television icon to so many people drew his final breath. And it wasn't really until after he passed that the world knew just how much he suffered while he was alive - not just from what eventually would kill him, but the despair and the stress of trying to separate his personal life from his professional life. The agony of presenting the image of the perfect father and all around nice guy on television when in reality he hated the very role that made him famous. I'll admit, I missed "The Brady Bunch" when it first aired on network television. The show, after all, did debut twelve years before I was born.

I have to admit, it would have been nice to have siblings who were closer to my age, and having an Alice around would have been fantastic. That said, I am happy with the family that I did have, and while my family is definitely not the Brady Bunch (I would say mine is a cross between the Conners from "Roseanne" and the Bundys from "Married...With Children") - I'll keep them. Born in Highland Park, Illinois on October 19, 1932 as John Robert Rietz, Jr., Robert became interested in acting right around the time he was enrolled in high school. He performed in several plays and even had a hand in producing radio shows while still a teenager. After graduating from high school in 1950, he attended Northwestern University to study drama, where he would play the leading role in no less than... Source: A POP CULTURE ADDICT'S GUIDE TO LIFE

In an age of proliferating choices, television nevertheless remains the most popular medium in the United States.

Yet that industry has undergone profound changes since the 1980s, moving from a three-network oligopoly to a sprawling range of channels and services...
