Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

TV Livingpresents the surprising results of the largest survey of television viewing habits ever completed. For five years, 500 people kept a diary of their television viewing, their lives, and the relationship between the two. The results upset and confirmed commonly held beliefs about audiences, such as: television is not a masculine domain, the elderly audience has diverse tastes, and people regulate how much violence, sex, or bad language they watch. This clear and engaging book, which includes actual quotes from diaries, presents an exciting, literate, and thoughtful picture of the complex and fascinating relationship between mass media and people's lives today.

Table of Contents

Introduction — Television and everyday life — News consumption and everyday life — Transitions and change — Television's personal meanings: companionship, guilt and social interaction — Video and technology in the home — The retired and elderly audiences — Gender and television — Television violence and other controversies — Conclusions.
