This is the fourth edition of Ed Papazian's classic book about the evolution of TV, in this case from 1950 to 2015, just before the streaming revolution gained momentum. It's a book, book—no tables or charts—and gives anyone who is really interested in TV an opportunity to kick off their shoes, plunk themselves down in a comfy easy chair and learn about how all of TV's major program types emerged, how the networks operated (and still do in many respects), how Nielsen started to measure TV ratings, how viewer attentiveness was measured, how TV time buyers and sellers deal with each other, how advertisers approach the medium, and most important, how audiences react to program content and ad campaigns. Once you read this book you will have a much better understanding of what's happening today.
