Professors will find this textbook comprehensive and well-organized, while students will find it engaging and provocative."--Ethan Thompson, Texas A&M University, Corpus Christi


"Mittell brings much needed energy to television studies--a well-rounded treatment of television as culture, industry, form, production, and technology."--Anandam Kavoori, University of Georgia

Good at looking at how TV is a the center of American popular culture. Looks into how TV shows are created. The book gives you the tools to understand in a critical light, how TV works.
