A: I was a big "Cagney and Lacey" fan and "Hill Street Blues." I watched a lot of "Days of our Lives" and "Masterpiece Theater." Saying "Masterpiece Theater" was a huge influence makes me sound pointy-headed and smart, but it was an early show for me. I loved "Get Smart," "Gilligan's Island," "The Partridge Family," "Patty Duke," "All in the Family," "Maude," "Mary Tyler Moore." Like any industry, these amazing things can happen, but then different forces cause people to forget. I think television reminded itself of how great it can be when the digital revolution came about. Now, there's an idea of permanence. Television doesn't go anywhere now. I interviewed Candice Bergen, and I was trying to find "Murphy Brown" and I couldn't find it on Netflix or Hulu or on DVD. I became really incensed that I couldn't find anything I want. I was literally personally outraged, and that's where we are with TV. When we want something, we want to be able to access it immediately.
