The three major television networks are the targets of antitrust suits brought by the Justice Department to challenge program procurement practices under sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act. The author examines the challenged network practice against the framework of the antitrust laws, explores the applicability of the antitrust laws to television as a regulated industry, and assesses the possible outcome of the suits on the merits.
