Networks like NBC, CBS or ABC began to include more documentaries and political programs in their schedules. 4) Herbert stemle a. is an American teacher who was famous for his celebrity as a television game show contestant---and for helping to expose what became known as the quiz show scandals after his long run as champion on the 1950s show Twenty One was ended by Columbia University teacher and literary scion Charles Van
