The best ever book about TV and audiences,
By A Customer
This review is from: TV Living: Television, Culture and Everyday Life (Paperback)
Brilliant, highly readable book showing the role of TV in the lives of ordinary people, i.e. everybody. Very well-written, and the summaries of previous research make it great for the undergraduate student. The quotes from all the viewers, 500 of them, make it a very easy and enjoyable read. I liked the pages about battles for control of the TV in the family, and about gender. The chapter on news got a bit boring. Overall though this is essential for media studies people, I would have thought.
