Citation, Documentation of Sources

Q. Hi. I’m creating a handout for students that’s kind of a quick guide to simple kinds of citations following CMOS and referring them to their copies of CMOS for more info. I’m having trouble finding your preference for television show citations. I can find info on citing them within a text or for citing reviews, but how about citing the actual program in a bibliography?

A. Here goes:

Friends. Season 7, episode 7, “The One with Ross’s Library Book.” Directed by David Schwimmer and written by Scott Silveri. Aired November 16, 2000, on NBC.

You can also list under the name of the director. See CMOS, chapter 14, for more examples.
