Chomsky is a prolific television director, and his career spanned from 1964–1995. During the late 1960s, Chomsky directed eleven episodes of the television series The Wild Wild West. He also directed episodes of Star Trek and Gunsmoke.

Besides directing individual episodes for television series, Chomsky directed made-for-TV movies such as Brinks: The Great Robbery (1976), Victory at Entebbe (1976), Attica (1980) and Billionaire Boys Club (1987). During the 1970s, Chomsky served as one of the directors for the miniseries Roots (1977), and he also worked on other miniseries such as Holocaust (1978), Inside the Third Reich (1982) and Peter the Great (1986). He also directed Vanessa Redgrave in the 1982 TV movie, My Body, My Child, the miniseries Brotherhood of the Rose (1989) with Robert Mitchum, Peter Strauss and David Morse, and the TV movie Catherine the Great (1995), starring Catherine Zeta-Jones.
