From the Publisher"This is, quite simply, the best book out there for teaching introductory TV courses. The text is well-conceived and engaging, and Butler does a superb job of illustrating the formal and aesthetic structures of television in a clear and readable manner."
—Tara McPherson, Associate Professor, School of Cinematic Arts, University of Southern California
"Written with clarity and wit, Television surveys a range of ways of analyzing a medium which young people, although they consume it voraciously, seldom scrutinize. It can help make students more sensitive and critical consumers of the major mass medium of our time."
—David Bordwell, Jacques Ledoux Professor of Film Studies, Department of Communication Arts, University of Wisconsin–Madison
"Television is a terrific book with wide student appeal. Butler explains critically sophisticated ideas in clear, accessible language, with concrete examples that bring those ideas to life. The book's substance, structure and 'user-friendly' design make it the best all-around book for teaching students how to think about television."
—Kathleen Rowe Karlyn, Professor, University of Oregon
