THE GREAT AMERICAN READ is an eight-part series that explores and celebrates the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100 best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey). It investigates how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our diverse nation and our shared human experience. The television series features entertaining and informative documentary segments, with compelling testimonials from celebrities, authors, notable Americans and book lovers across the country. It is comprised of a two-hour launch episode in which the list of 100 books is revealed, five one-hour theme episodes that examine concepts common to groups of books on the list, and a finale, in which the results are announced of a nationwide vote to choose America’s best-loved book.

For over fifty years, crooner Perry Como ranked as one of America's most successful and beloved entertainers. Starting as a big band singer in the late 1930s, a radio star in the 1940s and then a TV headliner in the 1950s and onward, Perry was a warm and welcome presence in tens of millions of households for six decades, charting over 100 hit songs along the way. Now, for the first time, a collection of Como's biggest hits from long-lost and newly-restored episodes of his TV programs - including rare color programs and more recently discovered lost footage - is being presented on PBS. Hosts are Peter Marshall and Nick Clooney.
