Adam Buckman is the author of “JERK: How I Wasted My Life Watching Television,” a journalist’s memoir of a 30-year career (so far) spent covering the television business.

“JERK” — available here, on Amazon — is an entertaining, insightful, personal history of television.  With a title inspired by an angry reader who mailed him one of his newspaper columns with the word “Jerk” scrawled over his column photo, “JERK” is a hilarious and poignant insider’s tour of the TV business.

It features dozens of never-before-told anecdotes about TV’s biggest stars – Jerry Seinfeld, David Letterman, Jay Leno, Howard Stern, Katie Couric and many more.

“JERK” goes behind-the-scenes with TV’s most unforgettable characters – actors, actresses, news anchors, game show hosts, comedians, kiddie show icons, talk-show hosts, producers, writers, network executives, publicists and more – and reveals what they might not want you to know.

“JERK” traces the epic evolution of television from the 1980s to the present: The explosion of TV channels, the shattering of long-standing taboos, the four-star hits and the zero-star stinkers. Written by a keen observer of the TV business who has had a front-row seat for more than three decades, “JERK: How I Wasted My Life Watching Television” is like no other TV book you have ever read.
