"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
