television program titles

Put quotation marks around show only if it is part of the formal name. The word show may be dropped when it would be cumbersome, such as in a set of listings. Treat programs named after the star in any of the following ways: “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Mary Tyler Moore” or the Mary Tyler Moore show. But be consistent in a text. Use quotation marks also for the title of an episode: “Pawnee Zoo,” an episode of “Parks and Recreation.” Also: “NBC Nightly News,” the “Today” show, “The Tonight Show.”
