On June 25, 1951 the face of entertainment changed forever. On this day CBS broadcast the first ever color tv show, a variety show called “Premiere”. At this time most people did not have color tvs in their home, so they could not fully appreciate it. This show and others that followed encouraged people to buy color tvs. However, the adaption of the new technology was slow, and color tvs did not completely replace black and white ones until the 1980s. Color TV Day is a holiday that celebrates the birthday of the first color tv show and honors the prevalence it has in our modern society.
