“The Television Project: Some of My Best Friends,” the second installment of the National Jewish Archive of Broadcasting, a new ongoing exhibition series at the Jewish Museum in New York, will be on exhibit from March 18 to August 14. The new exhibit explores the full range of the medium’s approach to anti-Semitism, from the satire and humor of situation comedies to serious dramas. Clips from programs including “All in the Family,” “Downton Abbey,” “Mad Men,” “Gunsmoke,” and “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” will be featured.

The Jewish Museum is at 1109 Fifth Ave. at 92nd Street in Manhattan. For more information, call (212) 423-3200 or go to www.thejewishmuseum.org.
