The Goldbergs

The Goldbergs was a situation comedy which ran on USA radio from 1929 to 1947 and then on television from 1949 to 1955.

The program was devised by writer Gertrude Berg in 1928 and sold to the NBC radio network the following year. It was a domestic comedy featuring the home life of a Jewish family in New York City; in addition to writing the scripts Berg starred in the series.

The show began as a weekly 15 minute program called The Rise of the Goldbergs on November 20, 1929. In 1931 became a daily serial called The Goldbergs.
