From 1955 to 1958, in the midst of television's most dynamic growth as an industry, big-money quiz shows with names like "The $64,000 Question" and "Twenty-one" ruled prime time television. Some 50 million viewers watched as contestantsDDincluding celebrities like Charles Van Doren, Dr. Joyce Brothers, Patty Duke, and Xavier CugatDDreturned week after week to roll up huge winnings on live broadcasts answering difficult questions that seemed to require unusual knowledge.In the summer of 1958, a young actor came into the office of the Manhattan District Attorney to complain that a minor daytime quiz show called "Dotto" was fixed. Joseph Stone, an assistant district attorney and a specialist in commercial and consumer fraud, had never heard of anything like it and dismissed the complainant as a crank, until bits of the story appeared in a newspaperDDand "Dotto" was taken off the air. This encouraged other whistle-blowers to go public with allegations concerning two prime-time quiz shows; within days, television was rocked by the greatest scandal in its history.Prime Time and Misdemeanors is a complete, first-hand account of the TV quiz rigging affair, from Joseph Stone's unique perspectiveDDthrough two grand jury probes directed by Stone, circus-like congressional hearings (highlighted by the confession of Charles Van Doren, the biggest celebrity created by the quiz shows), and the eventual prosecution of Van Doren and a score of others for perjury.
