On this day in 1993, CBS debuted the drama Walker, Texas Ranger. The series starred Chuck Norris as martial arts-practicing Texas Ranger Cordell Walker who fights crime along with his partner, James "Jimmy" Trivette (Clarence Gilyard). The series also starred Sheree J. Wilson as an assistant DA (and Walker's eventual wife).

The series ran eight seasons; for two of those seasons the show ranked in the Nielsen;s Top 20, for five it was in the Top 30.

Good news, TVWW readers: David’s new book from Doubleday, The Platinum Age of Television: From I Love Lucy to The Walking Dead, How TV Became Terrific is available on Amazon for $20. (Paperback will be available September 5th, here.)

Doubleday says: “Darwin had his theory of evolution, and David Bianculli has his. Bianculli's theory has to do with the concept of quality television: what it is and, crucially, how it got that way."

"The Platinum Age of Television is an effusive guidebook that plots the path from the 1950s’ Golden Age to today’s era of quality TV. For instance, animation evolved from Rocky and His Friends to South Park; variety shows moved from The Ed Sullivan Show to Saturday Night Live; and family sitcoms grew from I Love Lucy to Modern Family. A high point is the author’s interviews with Carl Reiner, Mel Brooks, Norman Lear, Bob Newhart, Matt Groening, Larry David, Amy Schumer and many others...Bianculli has written a highly readable history." —The Washington Post
