Please point me to the weekly prime time schedule for every network, from the beginning of television to now. (someone simply must have scraped this together into one chart somewhere on the interweb)

I'm no expert, but I think "network" means CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, & any antiquated or obscure ones with which I might not be familiar. ..and, yes, I suppose this is an American question. I hope this is as simple and accessible a request as it seems.

Just a thanks to herb for posting that link.. I went back to 1953 to see if I could remember anything (I was frigging 5 years old then...!) and, darn, yes, I could... this is going to be a huge time waster for me!

Classic TV Database: Past Primetime Schedules.

If classic TV interests you, I recommend the The Complete Directory to Prime Time Network and Cable TV Shows, 1946-Present. It is a big paperback of 1900 pages describing every network show and most syndicated and cable shows also. It also has schedules, trivia, ratings, and tons more info. It was last updated in 2007, and Google Books has a preview.
