The author encourages critical analysis while discussing how television (limited here to broadcasts that appeared on a network at one time) achieves meaning through technical nuts and bolts, business, and style. He discusses non-empirical, non-evaluative methods of criticism (e.g. feminist, genre study) and how series, commercials, music videos, and cartoons can be interpreted through each point of view. In this third edition, a chapter analyzing reality television has been added, and there is new discussion on how the digital age has diminished the stronghold networks held on the medium during the "broadcast era." This book will be of interest to communications and media studies students, as well as those who may enter broadcasting in a technical, creative, or business capacity.
