CNBC Titans Full Episode Guide

  • Building Playboy from a publication to a full-blown international brand, Hugh Hefner has become one of the most famous entrepreneurs of our time, and his lifestyle and sense of style have changed American pop culture forever.

  • If one had to create a fictional profile on the most successful media titan in history, it would be tough to fashion one more deserving than Barry Diller: CEO of Paramount Pictures, creator of the Fox Network and founder of the USA Network.

  • The quintessential brash, bold, imperial CEO of the 1980s -- when this type of chief executive reigned supreme, Lee Iacocca began his career as an engineer for the Ford Motor Company. He quickly gravitated to sales and rose to become president of the company.

  • Jack Daniel and his Tennessee Whiskey are American legends revered by rebels and rock stars. In 1866, four years after Jasper "Jack" Daniel became a licensed distiller at the ripe old age of 16, he founded the nation's oldest distillery in Lynchburg, Tenn. Today, Jack Daniel's is the most popular whiskey in the world.

  • Hershey. Few words sound sweeter. But behind the mouthwatering chocolate is a man, Milton S. Hershey, whose obsessive search for the perfect confectionery turned a pastoral Pennsylvania town into the candy-making capital of the world.

  • Featuring George Foreman who came from the mean streets of Houston to the pinnacle of corporate America, the life of George Foreman would seem unbelievable even by Hollywood standards.

  • Ted Turner is a media mogul, world-class sailor and conservationist. While he doesn't fit easily into any single category, his story is uniquely American. It made sense that the man known as "The Mouth of the South" would make his fortune with the first 24-hour cable news network. But for Ted Turner, founding CNN, which would become the crown jewel in his rapidly expanding multi-billion dollar media empire, was only one step is his quest for immortality. Turner would shrug off the effects of the most disastrous corporate merger in history to tirelessly pursue his dream of a world without hunger or nuclear weapons.

  • There is no name more synonymous with real estate -- or self-promotion -- than Donald J. Trump.

  • If the moniker of Mr. Hollywood could be applied to anyone, it would be Merv Griffin. A pioneering singer, talk show host, and media mogul, Griffin was a true iconoclast who created some of the most popular game shows of all time, including Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune. And although he was also a Tinseltown personality who knew everybody in the biz, it was his business prowess in real estate that would eventually make him a billionaire.

  • Steve Jobs has been the supreme and undisputed king of Silicon Valley for the better part of three decades.

  • Featuring the rise of one of the most influential CEO's in business.

  • Featuring two immigrants who would combine talents and create what would become the most powerful consumer goods company in history.

  • Featuring Herb Kelleher who is the co-founder and former CEO of Southwest Airlines. Herb grew the company from a small regional carrier with just four jets into an industry leader.
