The program debuted on the NBC Blue Network as “The Rise of the Goldbergs”,
later known as “The Goldbergs” when it moved to CBS in 1936. It was devised by
writer-actress Gertrude Berg as a domestic comedy featuring the home life of a
Jewish tenement family, supposedly located in the Bronx. In addition to writing 
the scripts and directing each episode, Berg starred as the Jewish matriarch
Molly Goldberg.
