Review:

"College-level collections strong in film and television will find Television Criticism a welcome addition to the collection: it explores the business, production and entertainment aspects of the TV industry and the critical rhetoric, culture and representation surrounding it, offering a range of analytical styles for past and current TV programs in different genres. Students receive a variety of formulas for developing critical thinking about television, and are provided everything they need to develop such perspectives, from new guidelines for television analysis to insights from producers and business people working in the field. Television Criticism is not only recommended for library acquisition but will also make a fine course supplement – perhaps even serve as a basic text." (James A. Cox)
