Broadcast television began experimentally in the early 1930s. At the time, these broadcasts consisted of very low-quality images of wrestling, music and dance. RCA unveiled NBC TV studios at the 1939 World's Fair, and CBS began broadcasting a few months later.

It was not until 1947 that television began to really enter the mainstream led by "The Ed Sullivan Show," "Candid Camera," "Howdy Doody," "Philco Playhouse" and "Kulka, Fran & Ollie."
